Barack Obama Gets #YesWeTan Hashtag Trending With Tan Suit Prank

We assumed that Barack Obama hung up this tan suit for good after Twitter made a mockery of his outfit during a major press conference on foreign policy last August. But it looks like POTUS has dusted off the infamous suit.

On Tuesday, The White House shared what many believed was a sneak peek of Obama's State of the Union 2015 look on social media. The president's senior adviser Dan Pfeiffer even got cheeky on Instagram by adding the hashtag #YesWeTan.

And it wasn't long before satirical replies started to flood our timelines.

But it was all a PRANK.

Obama eventually appeared wearing a navy suit. While it isn't the much-talked-about tan suit, the traditional hue complemented FLOTUS' charcoal gray Michael Kors ensemble.
