The Best of President Obama’s Umbrellagate

Posted on May 16 2013 - 8:20pm by Harrison

It wasn’t the most important thing that happened, but it is worth mocking the president for… having two U.S. marines hold umbrellas during a Rose Garden press conference with the Turkish prime minister.

It was the dismissive way in which Obama spoke about the marines that riled so many people:

I am going to go ahead and ask folks why don’t we get a couple of, uh, marines… they’re going to look good next to us cause I, uh, I’ve got a change of suits but I don’t know about uh, our prime, uh, prime minister.

And so… here’s the best of the satire:

    Some funny stuff there, but doesn’t that Marine in the fist picture looked pissed?!

      He totally looks like he thinks less of Obama.

    “They’re going to look good next to us”

    No, Mr President. You look good next to THEM!
