TIPS FROM THE POOL…INTO THE DEEP END

It’s like sneakers. Windbreakers. Or J. Crew. Whatever POTUS and FLOTUS do, say, think, feel, eat, wear — and carry — gets noticed. This past weekend in a White House Pool Report, the Pooler, Isaac Wolf, National Reporter for Scripps Howard News Service, noted that President Obama was wearing Asics and carrying the NYT under his arm. Not a huge surprise — we didn’t expect it to be Playboy or anything. (The 81-year-old Rep. John Conyers (D-Mich.) was caught reading the illustrious magazine on a recent flight — no doubt he was reading the mag for the journalism not the pictures.)

Potus wore black White Sox  cap, black North Face fleece sweatshirt, white tee shirt, grey sweats and what appear to be Asics sneakers. He was holding a folded over newspaper, appears to be today’s NY Times.
