WASHINGTON, D.C. (PIX11) - The White House is finally addressing President Obama's highly-controversial press briefing Thursday -- a media event that spiraled into Bengazi-esque levels of Internet debate because of his decision to wear a tan suit.
"Before we get started, just for the sake of efficiency I know that there's at least one aspect of the president's news conference yesterday that attracted some attention," White House press secretary Josh Earnest said Friday. "So I thought I would just go over one aspect of that argument -- and it's exactly this, the president stands squarely behind the decision that he made yesterday to wear his summer suit at yesterday's news conference."
Earnest broke into a smile as the assembled media let out a laugh -- although surely a possible tan suit question had already been jotted down in many a notebook.
"It's the Thursday before Labor Day, he feels pretty good about it," Earnest added.
