Policy Shift! The Post Investigates Obama’s Actual Flip-Flops

vert023858 Policy Shift! The Post Investigates Obamas Actual Flip FlopsLadies and gentlemen, the First Sandals have been inaugurated into office. While on vacation in Hawaii, President Barack Obama was caught before the lens of a shutterbug with not one, not two, but all ten toes basking in the Pacific sunlight. The New York Post consulted a bevy of presidential historians and fashion experts and decided that this is a monumental event.

“I can’t say I’ve seen a president’s toes before,” said Jane Hampton Cook, presidential historian.

“I can think of no other president photographed in flip-flops,” said Meghan Cleary, fashion expert.

“In public, no. I haven’t seen the president’s toes,” said Doug Wead, presidential historian.

The Post then made the obvious point that such hitherto unpresidential footwear makes the commander in chief look a bit soft — or, as a “DC observer” put it, “You don’t think you’re going to see Vladimir Putin wearing flip-flops, do you?”

But remember, DC insider, the weather in Russia is not exactly ideal for flip-flops. But maybe Vlad breaks out his pair of toeless Adidas after a few vodkas, am I right? Nostrovia!
