House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) showed up to a Thursday press briefing in a yellow motorcycle jacket that was meant to show her support for the Golden State Warriors as they play for the NBA championship, Fox News reported.
Social media commenters had other ideas about what the jacket reminded them of, however. Some compared the jacket to Elvis’s wardrobe, while others saw Michael Jackson or the movie “Kill Bill.”
Buffy the Vampire Slayer was a TV character mentioned in connection wtih the jacket. While some were critical of Pelosi for the wardrobe choice, while others praised it. The comments ranged from being “appalled” to praising the speaker for her boldness.
Pelosi proudly drew attention to the coat and made it clear that she had a reason for wearing it. “See my yellow jacket? Golden State Warriors,” Pelosi told the gathered reporters.
