As far Obama is concerned that's what the military is for, right? Being his towel boys.
Benghazi? F 'em.

This is just his way of belittling those who are sworn to protect the America he despises. Filthy trash trying to demoralize the military.

that is disgraceful - he has plenty of WH staff, or the WH police for that matter - how demeaning for a Marine.

Hopefully in about 6 months those Marines will be able to say they held an umbrella for an impeached President.

Assuming this is not normal protocol for Presidents, this is most likely related to his hostile, controlling, and very passive-aggressive habit of keeping an entire nation waiting when he shows up late for press conferences.

Not to Mention the Marines Will probably need to have their Blue's Dry Cleaned.

If I were that Sergeant I would NOT be happy. (btw he doesn't look very happy to begin with)

I ponder the minutia of the logistics of this type of stuff. Those marines are probably standing there, contemplating how they are going to dry out the uniform, without shrinking it, can they get them dry before the dry cleaner closes, and how much does next day cleaning cost.

I hope those on WH detail get an extra uniform allowance, for cleaning and spare uniforms.

I wish it would be akin to the pic of Dukakis riding in that tank.

So will the Marines have to change their recruiting slogan?

“We’re looking for a few good umbrella holders.”

CAPTION PING


U.S. President Barack Obama checks to see if he still needs the umbrella held by a U.S. Marine to protect him from the rain during a joint news conference with Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan in the Rose Garden of the White House in Washington, May 16, 2013.

Obama can try to make these Marines look bad, but he's only serving to reveal himself,, and the revelation is not flattering.

It wasn’t aimed at the military. That little peevish stunt was aimed at a wet and dripping press corp.

If the press doesn’t wake up soon, they can just roll over and go home. Just phone it in: Great, wonderful, Dear Leader, blah blah blah.

I guess I’ve been out too long, what happened to the
leg stripes? They represented the blood of the NCO’s.
Can’t say much for the white trow either.

Effrontery, arrogance or ignorance. Remember Michelle touched the Queen of England - a definite protocol "No,no" Those two have no class whatsoever.

I do remember B.Clinton having them escort his guests, (including Monica Lewinski, I think) around in Washington, D.C., didn’t he? I know they had Marines serving at a dinner party or luncheon once; that was the time when Hillary tossed a cup with some coffee at a Marine because it was cold! That too, was disgusting, and they want to put that stinkin’ woman back into the race for President? Good Lord!

Just spoke with my brother (active USMC) about red stripe on pants. The Marine would have to be ranked Corporal or higher to wear red stripe. It is NOT allowed on the white pants. I hope this helps!

It is the summer dress uniform. Obviously these Marines rate it based on their duty assignment, normally only SNCO/Officer uniform.

Obama touching the Marine, Sasquatch mauling the Queen....it’s not only a lack of class, it’s a deliberate in-your-face KMA. They do it because they can, and afterward, in private, they laugh like hyenas.

(No offense to hyenas)

Obama calls in the Marines to hold umbrellas over his head and the Turkey Muslim Prime Minister, but won’t use them to save American lives at Benghazi.

I think he is trying to humiliate the Marines. Reminds me of using slaves to fan the master on a plantation. He could have easily moved the press conference under the porch, if he was that afraid of rain.
