Official White House Photographer Pete Souza tweeted a picture of President Obama speaking to Russian President Vladimir Putin on the phone in the Oval Office about Ukraine, and no one really cared about a possible war or diplomacy. What mattered was . . . why was the President wearing blue jeans while talking on the phone?! Why wasn't he wearing a smartly tailored suit on a SATURDAY? People weren't incensed just that Obama was wearing jeans while speaking to another world leader, they were upset because the picture wasn't "staged" precisely to their liking. OPTICS!!!!

No, really. this happened . . .
