Stop the Presses: President Obama Wears Tan Suit; Twitter Reacts
The Internet is not pleased about his summertime wardrobe
President Barack Obama held a press conference Thursday to address the threat of the Islamic State group in Iraq and Syria, but all anyone on Twitter cared about was his tan suit.
Since the president once told Vanity Fair that he wears "only gray or blue suits," his color of choice shocked the Twittersphere, even inspiring a @Baracktansuit account, as well as the hashtag #YesWeTan. However, unlike @Pharellhat, which is still going (somewhat) strong, Obama's suit-inspired username has since been suspended. The Hollywood Reporter has reached out to Twitter for comment.
So far, this is what Twitter has to say:

This is what happens when Obama bypasses Congress to purchase a suit.— Philip Klein (@philipaklein) August 28, 2014
Imagine if Obama wore a tan suit after Labor Day. That would be grounds for impeachment.— Garrett Quinn (@GarrettQuinn) August 28, 2014
