Beware the fashion police

The fashion police are out for democrat house leader Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY) for wearing tennis shoes with a suit to a budget meeting at the White House. Of course it is now common to see men wearing tennis shoes with suits. Just look at ESPN. Little known is the fact that I started the trend. In January 2017, the University of Georgia honored me and two others who entered the university in 1962 as its first black freshman. The morning of the event I realized that I had left my “dress” shoes and only had my running shoes with me. It was too early to go out and buy another pair of shoes so I was forced to wear “tennis” shoes to the event. It felt strange. Little did I know that was was setting a fashion trend. So its all my fault.
