Ever since President Obama showed up to throw out the limp-wristed first pitch at the 2009 MLB All-Star game, there have been two questions on the minds of the American people.
The first is how a man his age could not know that he can’t throw a baseball and would embarrass himself in front of millions of people.
The second is how the coolest President in history could be caught dead wearing “dad jeans.”
Despite enduring a week where its journalistic integrity has come into question like never before, CNN has decided to do some hard-hitting investigating about the progress of Barack Obama’s jeans.
In a piece titled, “Obama’s jeans game gets strong(er)“, CNN chronicles the evolution of the ex-president’s choice in denim pants, ultimately concluding that he has come a long way in terms of acceptable style.
As expected, the Twitterverse was quick to jump on CNN with unrelenting mockery.
