‘FEEL THE RESPECT’! Tie-less Obama oozes ‘detachment and contempt’ [photo]
Sounds tired. Sounds checked out.

Makes sense. Golf is exhausting, after all.
Well, he didn’t dump the bucket of ice on his head, but President Obama did make a statement at this afternoon’s press conference on Iraq and Ferguson. A fashion statement, that is. Twenty-seven minutes after the presser was set to begin, he strolled into the room looking tired — and tie-less. Tweeters couldn’t help but remark on his Casual Monday look:
OBAMA ISN'T EVEN WEARING A TIE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Preident Obama: wear a tie next time, ok? I love ya, but if you can put that flag pin on, you can tie a tie.

Maybe he can’t! Look, ties are just, like, so much work, you know? And you’re not supposed to work when you’re on vacay.
Obama is in the briefing room and not wearing a tie. #stillonvacation?

I need Obama in a tie. I know he's on break or whatever, but like SUIT THE FUCK UP and lead.

That’s a tall order, buddy. Remember who we’re dealing with.
Late. No tie. FEEL THE RESPECT, MINIONS.
