President Obama has just over a month left in office, and on Friday, he held the final press conference of the year — one of his last ever. While his speech addressed issues as wide-ranging as the crisis in Aleppo and Russia’s potential involvement in our recent presidential election, it was an unexpected remark about lattes — yes, lattes — that has Twitter freaking out.


Sharing his thoughts on what Democrats will have to do to win in future elections, President Obama began normally enough, saying: “I think [what] we have to spend the most time on — because it’s the thing we have the most control over — is how do we make sure that we’re showing up in places where I think Democratic policies are needed, where they are helping, where they are making a difference.”

Things took a turn, however, when he delivered this line: “And where Democrats are characterized as coastal, liberal, latte-sipping, you know, politically-correct, out of touch folks.”

Almost immediately, the Interwebs began having a field day with POTUS’ choice of latte-shaming words.

Making the whole thing even more hilarious was the fact that, as @DomenicoNPR pointed out, President Obama appeared to be sipping on a coffee (which could have very well been one of the lattes in question) during his address!

It wouldn’t be his first offense, either — apparently, he’s been casually sipping on lattes all year long.

For shame! We don’t care what anyone says — we’re NEVER giving up our espresso-filled delights (or our fruitcake Frappuccinos, for that matter).

BRB, running to Starbucks.
