And not just jeans and sandals, but awful jeans and sandals.

Unearthed in a story in Politico about the former president's unlikely friendship with Jonathan Goldsmith, a guy who's really famous in America for being in beer adverts, it turns out that Barry's blossoming reputation as a 'style guy' is just a ruse.

The only explanation surely is that the old, mum-jeaned, German tourist-sandaled version that loves archery was killed off for crimes against style and replaced with some sort of suave doppelgänger.

That's it.

We're onto you, Barack... if that is your real name.
