Obama Gives 'Latte Salute' to Marines After Stepping Off of Marine One


He didn't want to take 2 seconds and put the cup in his other hand and then salute. This is how much he honors the military. And where was this video (below) posted? Did a Fox reporter capture it? Maybe one of Hannity's people? A conservative blog? NO. The White House posted this on its own Instagram account


via ABC NEWS- When President Obama stepped off Marine One at the Wall Street landing zone in New York City, en route the United Nations, he saluted two Marines at the bottom of the stairs as he held a coffee cup in the same hand.

The unusual gesture appeared in an Instagram video posted by the White House on social media. Obama is also wearing sunglasses as he arrived, with the first lady not far behind.

The video drew ridicule from some Instagram users, who saw the unorthodox salute as "un-presidential."

"Hopefully it was just a slip by this President," one user posted. Others saw unnecessary nitpicking in the criticism.

While it is protocol for U.S. service members in uniform to salute the commander in chief, it's not required for a civilian president to salute back, military experts say. Ronald Reagan is thought to have set precedent for the practice back in 1981.

Here is the video-
