Yes, if you don't read the fRight Wing blogs you may have missed the fact that SOME ON THE RIGHT ARE OUTRAGED that President Obama was shielded from the rain by a Marine holding an umbrella over him when it rained during a joint appearance with the Turkish PM outside the White House.



Oh, it's terrible.  Terrible like Obama putting his foot on the desk in the Oval Office as SoFlo shared with us.

Quote
Obama breaches Marine umbrella protocol...
...Items not expressly delineated as authorized components of the Marine Corps uniform are prohibited. Male Marines are informed never to carry an umbrella from the earliest phases of training.

Not even the President of the United States can request a Marine to carry an umbrella without the express consent of the Commandant of the Marine Corps, according to the Marine Corps Manual.

Oh!  The HORROR!!!

Some on the fRight Wing are even using it for fund-raising:

That "genius" darling of trhe Fright, Tweeted:
Quote
“Mr. President, when it rains it pours, but most Americans hold their own umbrellas,” former Alaska governor Sarah Palin tweeted.

Free Republic cracked:


Lou Dobbs said:
Quote
"Obama expects our troops to hold damn umbrellas rather than go inside: It's disrespectful, inconsiderate, classless," Lou Dobbs added over Twitter.

One fRight Wing "new" outlet, The Blaze
Quote
WAS IT AGAINST UNIFORM PROTOCOL FOR THE MARINE TO HOLD OBAMA’S UMBRELLA?

went thru a whole detailed story on whether it was against Marines regs for the Pres to ask Marines to hold the umbrellas for him and his guests,  TRYING THEIR BEST to imply it was, then finally actually asked the Marines:

Quote
Given that the president is defined as the Commander in Chief “of the Army and Navy of the United States…” by the Constitution and that fact that the Marines’ dress code protocol says “the Commandant or higher authority” can authorize “articles that are not authorized for wear as a part of a regulation uniform,” is the president considered a commander with this ability?

Are you f'ing kidding me!?!?!!?  They actually asked that question after casting doubt for umpteen paragraphs?  The Marines responded:
"Certainly" DUH!!!!!!

However, NOWHERE did I see them mention that OTHER PRESIDENTS have been sheltered by military personnel carrying umbrellas for them:



Of course, Palin's idiotic comment is amplified by her own hypocrisy:


Then there's this:



AND THIS!!


Now with the photo of FOUR PRESIDENTS in mind, let us consider the full extent of Obama Derangement Syndrome revealed by this comment:
Quote
Carl Mayo • 4 months ago −
in and of itself, having someone hold an umbrella for you is a trivial thing.

the real issue is what it says about the character of a president who would require such a thing. it speaks volumes about his attitude toward those who work for him, and about americans in general. it explains why he feels no embarrassment about taking endless expensive vacations on the taxpayer's dime. it explains why the benghazi embassy staff were expendable. it explains why he feels it's okay to send the irs after his political enemies.

this simple act is an indicator of a deeper personality issue. it is a window into his soul, revealing a massive ego and a dangerous disdain for anyone who he feels to be beneath him.

NO!  What it reveals is how crazy such people are.

These folks are sick!!

Ya'll missed the point. It's a white man holding an umbrella for a black man. It doesn't matter that he's the president. We'll see if Lou Dobbs retracts his statement.

:nod:...............EXACTLY!  CU is spot on with this comment^^^^^.

And, NO!, Dobbs will NOT retract his statement.  This guy is full of so much hate for the president that sometimes I think his head is going to explode.  It is a hatred that's long and deep.  And its NOT going to stop.  >:(

I actually have the honor of teaching the Marine that is holding Obama's umbrella. Very nice guy, I think he's a Democrat. LOL!
Seriously, he told me that while they try not to have photos taken , they provide "umbrella escort" to  a lot of male high-ranking folk when they are going around downtown DC, between buildings.
He also told me that for the photo in question, an aide actually put them on notice beforehand because the rain might be too much. He didn't think that Obama set this up at all.

You can't let a good story get in the way of a good narrative. Isn't that the motto of Faux news?
