Obama Defends His Mom Jeans, “The Truth Is, I Look Very Sharp In Jeans”
I must not be up on my jean fashion sense…
Check it out:
President Obama went on “On Air with Ryan Seacrest” Friday morning, where he talked about his trip to a Gap store, attacks on his dad jeans and “Between Two Ferns.”
His defense of his jeans was prompted by a conversation Seacrest had with a Gap employee who helped Obama pick out sweaters for his wife Michelle, and daughters Malia and Sasha Obama. Apparently, she was thinking that Obama should perhaps update his wardrobe during his visit, too.
“I’ve been unfairly maligned about my jeans,” he said. “The truth is, generally I look very sharp in jeans. There was one episode like four years ago in which I was wearing some loose jeans mainly because I was out on the pitcher’s mound, and I didn’t want to feel confined while I was pitching, and I think I’ve paid my penance for that. I got whacked pretty good. Since that time, my jeans fit very well.”
