President Obama threw out the first pitch at the 2009 MLB All-Star game, and while some may have thought that was thrilling, others were more focused on what he was wearing… specifically, a pair of “mom” jeans.
Video after the jump!
Apparently “fashionistas” all over the country were talking about Obama’s pants. Priorities, right? Seriously, we should be discussing whether or not Michelle Obama is pregnant! Duh.
So, what are “mom” jeans? Well, they are high-waisted pants, with a very long front zipper and you have to make sure your shirt is tucked into them, to accentuate the high-waistedness of the jeans of course! And if a dad is wearing a similar type jean, are they “dad” jeans? Guess so?
I wonder if the Obamas get wind of this stuff? They must get a laugh about it if they do. Daughters Malia and Sasha, however, might get embarrassed… I mean it would be mortifying enough if mom were actually wearing “mom” jeans, but if your dad wore them, yikes, 10 times as bad! Omigosh daddy wore “mom” jeans, or “dad” jeans, whatevs… I’ll never be able to show my face in public again!
And, if you’re still unclear about “mom” jeans, watch this short, hilarious vintage SNL clip… talking all about “mom” jeans.
PS…I’m a mom, and I can safely say I have never put a pair of them on my body, EVER. No offense to those who like them.
