Biden pays homage to Obama by rocking tan suit during birthday week
President Biden made waves on social media on Friday after donning a tan suit during his jobs report announcement in apparent homage to former President Obama.
Here in the East Room, I’m listening to the president. The subjects are serious – the economy, vaccinations, jobs – but it’s hard to focus, since I was so distracted by his TAN SUIT. pic.twitter.com/uKr9jBUSzX

Obama sparked controversy in 2014 when he went viral for wearing a tan suit during a press conference addressing the nation on Russia and ISIS.
His wardrobe of choice shocked several pundits and media outlets, sparking a polarizing conversation on presidential attire.
“There’s no way I don’t think any of us can excuse what the president did yesterday,” he said of the tan suit.
