Did President Obama really think he'd get away with this? Thursday afternoon, the leader of the free world and apparent tan suit aficionado debuted something from his Summer wardrobe during a televised press conference. He was there to talk serious business: crises in the Middle East and Ukraine. Unfortunately, his outfit choice caused a bit of a distraction. Read on for the best #tansuit Twitter responses. On Thursdays we wear taupe!

I'm normally a fan of Obama but that was a very weak Obama speech and press conference. Only strong suit was his suit.
