Obama Calls In The Marines…To Hold His Umbrella

Courtesy of Drudge

During a press conference outdoors with the Turkish Prime Minister, Obama ordered the Marines to break protocol and hold umbrellas over their heads as it rained, remarking “They’re gonna look good next to us.”

What a pompous elitist!   The Marines are not house slaves for the ruling class.  They are not “photo ops.”  They are heroes who are sworn to protect and defend.  If Obama wants someone to bow and apologize to, he should start with the marine on his left.

The Twitterverse exploded with biting commentary on this one:
