President defends his pants

March 14, 2014, 11:53 am President defends his pants

By Justin Sink

President Obama complained during an interview Friday with Ryan Seacrest that he has been "unfairly maligned" for his jeans selection.

"I've been unfairly maligned about my jeans," Obama told the radio host. "The truth is, generally, I look very sharp in jeans. There was one episode like four years ago in which I was wearing loose jeans, mainly because I was out on the pitchers mound and didn't want to feel confined while I was pitching."

Earlier this month, former Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin mocked Obama's "mom jeans" while criticizing his handling of the Russian incursion into Crimea.

“People are looking at Putin as one who wrestles bears and drills for oil,” Palin told Fox News. “They look at our president as one who wears mom jeans and equivocates and bloviates.”

An employee at a Gap store that the president visited earlier this week in New York alluded to the criticism in a prior interview with Seacrest, but said she didn't try to sell the president a new pair while he was in the store.

Obama said that his daughters were pleased with the sweaters he picked out during the outing, meant to promote his push to raise the minimum wage to $10.10 per hour.

"They thought that for a dad, I displayed reasonably good taste," Obama said. "The bar is fairly low, but I didn't get too adventurous."

Obama added that he had played it conservative by only looking at sweaters and T-shirts for his famously fashionable daughters.

"When you start getting into pants or shoes, then you're doomed," he quipped.

I ...didn't want to feel confined while I was pitching.

OTOH, Perhaps he feels the need to be confined while catching.

Gawd, doesn’t this man have real work to do? I don’t think he works at all. He lets his czars do it all. He only signs executive orders.

While Putin is taking over Crimea, wreaking havoc on Ukraine; while an American made airplane with three Americans and 250+ people on board is simply missing; while he rules over the complete irreversible collapse of the medical industry, medical care for 310 million Americans

OUr kids must be so confused. Baby boomers need to put down the drugs and pay attention, but they won’t Millenials will have to fix this, and the very few that were taught to think.

I had to look this one over about six times before I concluded that it wasn't a comic satire.

Good grief!

One of the reasons why he was elected was the sexual fantasy had by millions of airheaded females, and a few males.

ROFL....this idiot has no shame. Does he really feel it necessary to defend himself on something this trivial? We should all start making fun of EVERYTHING about the guy. He'll spend the rest of his term thinking up and writing defense statements.

i didn’t see a sarc tag or a satire newspaper name.

this is what barrycades is focused on, now?

i think more people focused on you throwing the pitch like a girl, rather than the mom jeans. and they were mom jeans, barrycades.

George Bush wore a bullet-proof vest and it didn't bother him.

I guess if the jeans fit, wear them...but then defend them and whine about his fashion sense? Yeah, whatever...

It's hard to believe he's defending himself against something that happened how many years ago(?!) instead of just laughing about it.

Not sure why Palin still bothers him so much. He won, right? Shouldn't he be out playing golf or something like usual?
