On Friday morning, President Joe Biden appeared before the news media at the White House to make remarks about the latest job creation numbers (which were spectacular; nearly 1 million jobs created in one month!), and the first thing most people focused on was the suit he was wearing:
It was almost seven years ago to the day that former President Barack Obama wore a tan suit and had Republicans freaking out, The Hill recalls:
“Obama sparked controversy in 2014 when he went viral for wearing a tan suit during a press conference addressing the nation on Russia and ISIS.
“His wardrobe of choice shocked several pundits and media outlets, sparking a polarizing conversation on presidential attire.
‘There’s no way I don’t think any of us can excuse what the president did yesterday,’ he said of the tan suit.”
Biden’s choice of a tan suit is not merely a coincidence, especially since President Obama turned 60 on Wednesday. This was clearly meant to be a jab at anyone who didn’t care for Obama’s tan suit. Call it Biden’s way of putting it back in the faces of the clowns who were so offended by Obama wearing one.
It didn’t take long before social media lit up with kudos for President Biden and his sly sense of humor:
Thank you, Mr. President, for giving us all a hearty chuckle. You are indeed Joe Cool and the Master of Shade.
