President Obama makes U.S. Marine break military rules by holding an umbrella while in uniform

U.S. President Obama checks the need for and umbrella held by a U.S. Marine during a joint news conference with Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan in Washington
Even though he is the commander in chief, there are some orders that even President Obama cannot give – as he found out on Thursday, much to the chagrin of a put-upon U.S. Marine. Hosting Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan in the Rose Garden, the president requested two standing Marines to open umbrellas and protect them from the light rain that was falling. However, according to Marine Corps regulations, not even the President of the United States can request a Marine to carry an umbrella without the express permission of the Commandant of the Marine Corps.

      Is that the best you can come up with?

      Same tired ol’ “racist” rhetoric?

      When you can’t argue a point and your down to your last intellectual dime (didn’t take long), just bring up race. All the PC worshipers will adore you.

      Unfortunately, that makes YOU a racialist. Look it up.

      See here, dumbass: US Marines aren’t issued umbrellas and do not hold ANYONE’S umbrella for them. It’s a violation of code.

      BTW: there are black Marines. Gasp!

    The guy is a buffoon. All these protocols are available to the commander-in-chief if he cares to look. Normally, the President would have an advisor to whom he could rely for counseling on military esprit de corps; but I seriously doubt anyone in the “first family” gives a damn about tradition.

      What a racist remark!! Because he’s black??? You would think White House would pay attention to weather when the President is to speak outside & accommodate with a canopy!

      • carloshelms says:

        He’s black?

        I hadn’t noticed.

        Thanks for pointing that out – though it doesn’t make a difference to me.

        Still a buffoon.
