Ron Christie, a one-time adviser to President George W. Bush, said it wasn’t appropriate for President Obama to dress casually during his phone call with Vladimir Putin.

“Talking with the President of Russia about an invasion in a button-down shirt and jeans is not up to the task,” Ron Christie, a former adviser to President George W. Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney, told the Daily News.

While it “irks” him to see the casual wear that passes through the door of the Oval Office these days, he says Obama’s wardrobe choice for the Putin call was particularly bad for failing to send the “right message” given the seriousness of the issue.

White House photographer defends Obama noting that Ronald Reagan often worked in the West Wing wearing casual attire. But, then, he was St. Reagan.
