I suppose Narcissus didn’t see any real harm in what he did. But others did;

President Obama humiliated the marine who he asked to hold his umbrella by making him ‘look like a butler’, a respected military general claimed today. Thomas McInerney, a former United States Air Force Lieutenant General, said that the President showed a ‘lack of respect’ by making the soldier shelter him from a shower.  He also said that the President has plenty of aides so did not understand why one of them could not have held the umbrella…

  1. Microphones are dangerous in rain. You didn’t see Gene Kelly holding one when he was singin’ in the stuff, did you?
    The traditional remedy – from Hollywood to Woodstock – is to slip a non-lubricated condom over the mike.

    Maybe the President happened to be out of them.

  2. The marine is more important than the president. Obama should have been the one holding the umbrella.

  3. Literally every President (Reagan, Clinton & both Bush lads) have similar photos. But you knew that before you parroted the “respected general’s” claim…..

  4. Actually, I think that pic is from Malta????; they don’t look like US military. There are photos of US Army personnel holding umbrellas over Big Bush and li’l Bush circulating from CNN. This is much ado about very little.

  5. mind, just posted for the photos of military holding umbrellas for past presidents…

  6. Colm – indeed – David should have just blamed Obama for not stopping the rain.

  7. Mahons

    Patty asked him to hold off so she could blame Obama for a forthcoming drought 😉

  8. What a shallow oaf the narrow minded paranoiac determined to find fault with the ‘Kenyan’ is.

  9. Soooooo, now that we know, Bush 1 Bush 2 Reagan etc all had umbrellas held for them by marines et al, can we safely judge why this non-issue became an issue?

    It begins with R….

    No more hiding from it, you folks!
