Obama: I Love My Dad Jeans

Yesterday afternoon, Barack Obama sat down with The Today Show's Meredith Vieira, who promptly asked about the most pressing issue facing this young president: What was up with those jeans he wore to the All-Star Game last week? They looked like Levi 501s. Entertainment Weekly hilariously dubbed them "Dad jeans." It was a wardrobe choice that didn't exactly seem fitting for a guy generally considered pretty stylish. Why, pray tell, did Michelle let him out the door looking like that? Obama, for his part, didn't even try to defend the jeans. "Here's my attitude: Michelle, she looks fabulous; I'm a little frumpy," Obama told Vieira. "You know, basically, up until a few years ago, I only had four suits. She used to tease me because they'd get really shiny. I hate to shop. Those jeans are comfortable. And for those of you who, you know, want your president to, you know, look great in his tight jeans, I'm sorry, I'm not the guy." So no low riders, Vieira asked. "Sorry, yes," Obama declared. "It just doesn't fit me. I'm not 20."
