President Barack Obama took questions from the White House press corps Thursday afternoon on a range of life-and-death issues including Syria, Iraq, Russia’s aggressions against Ukraine, and the ISIS takeover in the Middle East. But the only thing Twitter wanted to talk about was the commander-in-chief’s tan suit.

Here are just some of the many, many comments on the suit, an unusual choice for a president who almost always addresses the nation in a more traditional dark-colored attire.

Praise

Criticism

Meta-criticism

Support

Mockery

Puns

The big picture

Reading the tea leaves

Point:

Counterpoint:

Acrostics

Aaaand the parody Twitter accounts…

Two of which didn’t last

Worst of all: It all might happen again
