Republican Rep. Peter King of New York is no fan of tan. The conservative member of Congress from Long Island blasted President Obama for wearing "a light suit, light tan suit" to talk about the threat of ISIS on Thursday.

"There's no way any of us can excuse what the president did yesterday," King said of President Obama on NewsMaxTV. "When you have the world watching... a week, two weeks of anticipation of what the United States is gonna do.
