The White House finally stopped dodging the question everyone is asking: What was up with Obama’s tan suit?
“I know that there is one aspect of the president’s news conference yesterday that attracted some attention,” White House press secretary Josh Earnest said Friday.
“So I thought I might go over at least on aspect of that argument and it’s specifically this: The president stands squarely behind the decision that he made yesterday to wear his summer suit at yesterday’s news conference. It’s the Thursday before Labor Day. He feels pretty good about it.”
The tan suit is actually a flip-flop for Obama, in 2012 he told Vanity Fair he only wears black or blue suits.
“You’ll see I wear only gray or blue suits,” Obama said.
