Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Friday, August 06, 2021

On August 28, 2014 - a date which will live in infamy - President Barack Obama wore a tan suit. Republicans and right-wing media treated it as a massive scandal. Almost exactly seven years later, President Joe Biden boldly followed in Obama's footsteps and put on a tan suit. Biden donned the suit during Obama's birthday week. The former president turned 60 on Wednesday.

Anyone who thinks Joe has the wherewithal to dress himself is delusional.

I absolutely loved this very nice tan suit. What a great gesture, all the way around.

Does it hurt to be as stupid as you are?

Probably not, that would require a bit of self awareness.

It only hurts the very few - if any - people who give a crap about you, that aren't as stupid as you.

You're a 4th rate troll in a sea of 2nd rate trolls.

IOW, he's the biggest loser on what he deems as this loser of a site. Huzzah!

Hmmmmm. I wonder why no uproar. Whatever could be the difference?

I'm stumped.

Whites are racially insane.

I just do not think Joe didn't realize the moment and did this just to play the idiots. I doubt if they will go for it again because historically it only made them look like idiots the first time. Barrack continued on to a 2nd term landslide, he could have worn a pink suit and still won. The right didn't realize that the color of his suit didn't matter, we'll see now if they learned their lesson.

Well, we know why the pirate captain calls for his brown pants rather than red. I think the same is at play with Biden with his rapidly sinking poll numbers. Same reason why Hillary wore them.

None of what you typed made sense.

Are you having a stroke?

Is there someone we should contact on your behalf?

Would someone explain what is the big deal in the first place.

What was republicans issue with a tan suit on Obama except it didn't really look very good on him?

#21 - you explain it to us, Bill.
We weren't the ones that were upset about it.
That was solely Fox News, right-wing sites, Republicans, and "conservative" pundits.
The rest of us pointed fingers at the circus of idiots and laughed.

Please explain it to us all. Thank you.

#21 My guess is the tan suit fit the narrative that Obama didn't belong, wasn't qualified to be POTUS because he didn't know how to present himself as a white man would. Or some such racist nonsense spewed by the proto Nazis at Fox and in the GQP.

It was the sartorial equivalent of asking for spicy mustard on his hot dog, which also created a right wing furor.

I love the Daily Show's composite showing a picture of Reagan in a tan suit next to a picture of Obama in a tan suit.

And then there was the stupid claim that Obama wore mom jeans.

They said he didn't look Presidential and that his appearance communicated a lack of seriousness.
What could it possibly be about Obama that might make Fox News and GOP members say that about Obama's appearance when nothing was ever said when Reagan, Clinton or either Bush's wore tan?
