President Obama officially endorsed Hillary Clinton today, but everyone was wondering when exactly it was filmed. And it didn’t take long to figure out.
See, a few shrewd Twitter sleuths were able to figure out Obama filmed the endorsement on Tuesday (after the AP called the Democratic race for Clinton, but before she won states that night). Why? Because of his tie:
Based on his tie, it appears that President Obama recorded the endorsement video on Tuesday. pic.twitter.com/oyDm4a4HCk

(Press Secretary Josh Earnest later confirmed that yes, it was filmed on Tuesday.)
And then Obama’s Tie Twitter became a thing:
Obama Tie Twitter is ok but I liked Obama Tan Suit Twitter more.

ACTUALLY, Obama taped that video on August 14, 2015. He wore the same tie that day, too.
