I've generally felt relatively ambivalent toward Gawker in the past, but clicking this link made me hope that everyone associated with the website experiences, very soon, an extremely painful crotch-related injury. That wish goes double for subby.

What's wrong with that suit?   It's a good looking suit.

I have it on good authority that any suit he wears will be empty

/what the hell does that mean anyway?
//I mean I understand what they mean when they say it but what does the emptiness of the suit imply?

It may be the pixels, but the right lapel appears to be about 3/8" wider than the left.  Then there's the tie that is too wide and clashes, not to mention it's bar-sinister which I personally think is an affront to human dignity.

Message from senior White House official: 'He loves that suit.'

It's a perfectly cromulent suit.

Also... really Gawker? Really really?

I have zero expectations in terms of interesting or relevant content when I click on a Gawker link and that "article" didn't even begin to meet them.

There's slow news day syndrome and then there's lazy-assed click bait. This qualifies as both.

It's a shame journalism has turned yellow as an ocean of piss when news media transitioned onto the Web. Newspapers everywhere are drying up, journalism is a dying art, and this is the New Coke we get as a result.

Gawker, YOUR BLOG SUCKS.
 
2014-08-28 08:40:33 PM  
Gawker, you're reaching pathetic levels of journalism.

Not gonna read a dumb article but I saw the President on TV tonight for the first time in a while and damn has the office aged him. Bet he can't wait for 2016.
 
2014-08-28 08:50:50 PM  
I'm as libby a lib as they come, but I'll admit when I saw the footage, I said "what, is he going to a beach wedding?"

It didn't look bad, light suits just tend to look a little more casual, and I wouldn't have made that choice given the subject matter of the press conference.

Add an equals sign between those two words and that's the inevitable future outcome.

Is that the suit he got from Boehner?

My father used to say that you can't fall out of a basement, but I'm not so sure. Every time I think we've reached the nadir of political discourse, something like this happens.

Imagine if Gawker was around last century.

"FDR Shames America by Riding in Wack-Ass Wheelchair"

I can see it now.

MFAWG: Wait, Diane Sawyer hands out BJs like candy?


I hand out BJs like candy too.

/in that I don't hand out either
//because I love candy and would never voluntarily share it

The beige tone indicates a lack of commitment and willingness to offend. The color is also perfect for sneaking across the desert to join his radical Muslin brothers in their quest of world domination under Sharia law. This suit is clearly one of a feckless terrorist.
 
2014-08-28 08:59:22 PM  
I don't think it is the color of the suit that bothers them.
 
2014-08-28 09:00:06 PM  
I couldn't get past the headline.
 
2014-08-28 09:02:21 PM  
I'd be pleased if a President would finally dispense with the whole suit-and-tie thing, and show up at the podium wearing jeans and a nice Oxford shirt. That's a guy I could trust.

I learned 20 years ago never to trust anyone in a suit. A suit is a lie.

Hey, right-wingers.  This is why Obama is essentially scandalproof at this point.  You screech about how everything, right down to his lunch meat condiment of choice, is a scandal and an outrage and an impeachable offense.  He could do basically anything at this point, and I wouldn't even know it because the moment you start foaming at the mouth to tell me why I should be angry, well, I just tune you right out because I'm sick of hearing this sh*t from y'all.
 
2014-08-28 09:06:34 PM  
I had no clue how right on point Bill Maher was when he gave this monologue after the 2008 election:

"Now that you've lost, Republicans have to agree not to waste everyone's time spending the next four years screaming for investigations of Barack Obama over made-up bullshiat.

[...]

So, you know what phrase I don't want to hear used frivolously for the next four years whenever Barack Obama forgets to put the kids in the car seat? "Disrespect for the rule of law." Dick Cheney ordered prisoners tortured by name. That ship has sailed.

I don't want to hear Sean Hannity say that, "Barack Obama announced that his daughters would be getting a puppy. A puppy from where? Probably a Chihuahua that came in from Mexico illegally. And how do we know this isn't a dog that pals around with terriers?"

You know, when Obama starts a pre-emptive war, and then f*cks it up, and makes torture our official policy and outs a CIA agent, and purges U.S. Attorneys, and tries to put his cleaning lady on the Supreme Court--and doesn't act on global warming, and appoints as the head of FEMA an ex-dildo salesman who was his college roommate--you know, that kind of stuff, believe me, I'll be with you. But, until then, I don't want to see Republicans freaking out if Obama isn't singing the National Anthem loud enough, or they find out he gets his suits made in France.

If he puts a moon roof in the presidential limo, he's not making himself Fuhrer; he's just trying to get the smell of stupidity out of the seats."

I did enjoy the pictures of Reagan in a tan suit in the comments. It's like the posters saying, "Here you go, for when your wackado relatives try to be clever and post Tan Suit Obama on Facebook."
 
2014-08-28 09:22:39 PM  
Don't panic fellow Americans, I've read that Speaker Boehner has a suit for him.

2014-08-28 09:26:01 PM  
Hey, you want to rag on a guy wearing a suit, let's start with Paul Ryan during the 2012 elections. At least Obama's suit fits.
