Barack Obama Fails to Return Salute US Marine While Boarding Marine One on His Way to Give Commencement Address at Naval Academy
Barack Obama, the Commander in Chief failed to return salute US Marine while boarding Marine One.
Who knew that President Obama needed a teleprompter or cue cards that say, “salute Marine while boarding helicopter?” As reported at the Weekly Standard, President Obama boarded Marine One without returning salute of US Marine at the steps. UNREAL. Obama later came out and shook the hand of the Marine as obviously someone on Marine One most likely old him to. How does a Commander in Chief not return salute a US Marine? Especially seeing that he was getting on Marine One to give a Commencement Address at the US Naval Academy. What is wrong with this man? What an embarrassment.
What else would we expect from the Campaigner in Chief, the Divider in Chief and the Golfer in Chief? From Salon, Twitter shreds Obama for non-salute.
Of course Obama had no problem using the Marines as his personal umbrella holder, but some how he could not see fit to salute a Marine, on the Friday before Memorial Day weekend.
