44th President Barack Obama’s ‘O-bomber’ jacket is breaking the internet

(NEW YORK) — Barack Obama sat courtside at the Duke-UNC game this week. But although the matchup is one of the most-anticipated college basketball games of the year, it was Obama’s bomber jacket that stole the show.

The former POTUS traded the traditional suit and tie from his presidential days for a relaxed all-black outfit in which a customized bomber jacket from designer Rag & Bone, embroidered with “44” on the left sleeve, was the main focus.

The 44th president’s stylish look instantly became a trending topic on social media, with some renaming Obama’s jacket the “O-bomber.”

“No president ever dripped harder than him,” one person commented on Twitter.

no president ever dripped harder than him.
