Say What? Obama Defends His Dad Jeans

"Those jeans are comfortable, and for those of you who want your president to look great in his tight jeans, I'm sorry — I'm not the guy. It just doesn't fit me. I'm not 20."

— President Barack Obama told the Today show that he's OK with being the unfashionable member of the first couple. While he's usually seen in a suit, Obama got a lot of criticism for the "dad jeans" he wore at last week's MLB's All-Star Game.

Obama looks fine to me. Some people will always come up with immature things to argue about when it comes to the President. And Michelle Obama always looks great to me. She's classy just as she should be. But she's been that way since before she was the first lady.

People need to get off his back. Its bad enough that they hound him for smoking and now what jeans he's wearing? Our forefathers must be twirling in their graves.

Those jean are horrible... just like that First pitch he threw. I mean they wouldn't even show the full shot of the him throwing the ball to the catcher for fear he would miss. Plus the fact the pitcher had moved to the front of the batters box instead of the normal catch stance. Sorry, but what a pansy.

He got criticism for his jeans?!?! Are you kidding me? I like that he wears what he wants and has the confidence not to care.

They look fine to me. He's not like all of the other Presidents who are all too old to wear those types of clothes. He fits in better that way. And who cares??? Hes at a baseball game, not some important international meeting.

LOL, I didn't even know he was criticized for the jeans. He's a president, not an actor/celeb whom people scrutinize when it comes to their outfits...unless the media starts viewing him like a movie star or something, but even then, seriously...I don't usually hear criticism much when it comes to male actors..or maybe I'm wrong...

I really don't have time to dig up video right now because I'm at work, but all over the campaign trail, for one. Recently I've seen it a lot when he's been defending his healthcare plan.

I don't see anything wrong with his jeans. I'm not a big fan of tight jeans on a guy.

Spacekat, in regards to this, I was referring to some of his supporters and not him; I guess that didn't come across in my wording. But, in general, we'll have to agree to disagree. Petulant is an understatement for some of Obama's reactions to criticism.

When the President gets more crticism for what he's wearing than the job he's doing, it's no wonder our country is in the shape it's in.

Wow, I'm pretty sure people were joking when they made fun of the jeans. Are we still not allowed to joke about Obama without some people getting defensive? :shrug: On a side note, before she had a stylist, Michelle wore "mom jeans," as well. I do love the way she dresses now, though! On another side note, Obama makes a lot more than $200,000 a year!
