President Obama has just over a month left in office, and on Friday, he held the final press conference of the year 鈥 one of his last ever. While his speech addressed issues as wide-ranging as the crisis in Aleppo and Russia鈥檚 potential involvement in our recent presidential election, it was an unexpected remark about lattes 鈥 yes, lattes 鈥 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: 鈥淚 think [what] we have to spend the most time on 鈥 because it鈥檚 the thing we have the most control over 鈥 is how do we make sure that we鈥檙e showing up in places where I think Democratic policies are needed, where they are helping, where they are making a difference.鈥

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

Almost immediately, the Interwebs began having a field day with POTUS鈥 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鈥檛 be his first offense, either 鈥 apparently, he鈥檚 been casually sipping on lattes all year long.
