Tongues wag over Obama's audacity to wear taupe

WASHINGTON (AP) Tongues are wagging over President Barack Obama's audacity to wear taupe.

The sight of Obama discussing possible U.S. military action in Syria in a light-colored suit lit up Twitter on Thursday, and the reviews of his unusual fashion choice were less than fashionable.

Many tweets poked fun at slogans that are closely associated with Obama.

"Taupe and change," says one tweet. "The audacity of taupe," says another, tweaking the title of one of Obama's best-selling books.

"Yes, we tan," says a third.

Gallows humor even came into play, with one tweeter suggesting the death penalty for whoever chose the suit for Obama to wear.

Obama typically wears dark suits.

In 2009, he was panned for wearing "mom jeans" to throw the first pitch at the All-Star Game.
