Wow. The lack of knowledge here is astounding. The knee-jerk assumptions alarming.
GW has been known, for a rather long time, for having fun with his choice of socks, even while President. It's widely know and reporters/photographers typically look forward to seeing what he's wearing at each event.
Seriously people. Spend some time to acquire facts/knowledge... you'll come across less embarrassing.
He certainly doesn't look like he's doing well. He appears to be trying hard to keep a smile, but you're right. The whole appearance is ... disturbing.

My input? As a knitter, those are hand knit socks.
As to them not matching, it's hard to match them up perfectly, so some knitters don't try and make them non- matching in a complimentary way.
I'm always glad when people wear the socks I knit them, so consider the clown socks as a kindness for a friend.
