A Republican Congressman Is Actually Upset About Obama’s Tan Suit

Is this real life?

Republican Rep. Peter King of New York is no fan of tan. The conservative member of Congress from Long Island blasted President Obama for wearing “a light suit, light tan suit” to talk about the threat of ISIS on Thursday.

“There’s no way any of us can excuse what the president did yesterday,” King said of President Obama on NewsMaxTV. “When you have the world watching… a week, two weeks of anticipation of what the United States is gonna do. For him to walk out — I’m not trying to be trivial here — in a light suit, light tan suit, saying that first he wants to talk about what most Americans care about the revision of second quarter numbers on the economy. This is a week after Jim Foley was beheaded and he’s trying to act like real Americans care about the economy, not about ISIS and not about terrorism. And then he goes on to say he has no strategy.”

King said Obama’s comments and actions showed “foreign policy was not a major issue” for President Obama.

Here’s the suit:
