– President Obama is
now being taken to task for asking marines to shield him during a news
conference rain shower. – [Reporter] He asked them to
hold umbrellas over his head. (reporter’s voice echos) – Check out the
picture of the marines holding the umbrella for
President Obama as it rains and the metaphor being,
hey they have him covered. Wouldn’t be nice if
he had them covered the way they have him covered? – [Man] He asked
marines for umbrellas. – [Woman] The president
called in a couple of marines for umbrella duty. Many people complained
saying marines have been through
too much training to have to hold an umbrella. – This shot of the
president emerged. President Obama hiding
under an umbrella hit the airwaves yesterday. Look at that marine
standing so erect. (dramatic music) It was a symbolic moment today when the marines came
out and put the umbrella. They were protecting him. Maybe in this case he
should’ve been protecting them. – [Man] Is there a more
apt visual than this one? The disembodied
arm of a US marine holding an umbrella
over the head of our beleaguered
commander-and-chief for him in the middle of a rainstorm. – [Woman] The marines
aren’t supposed to do that because they can’t
properly salute. – What is now being
called Umbrella-Gate. – [Man] A blog, Hot Air is demanding justice
for the marines. These guys aren’t valets. – I mean, I guess he could’ve
held it himself, right? – I don’t know. – Yes, bring forth
the umbrellas unto me. (somber music) (upbeat music)

    President Trump would have them grabbing and holding p*****s up if it was raining, and everyone pissed over an umbrella! Other countries leaders would have done the same.

    If the Marines protect their commander in chief from a storm while hosting a guest president, whats wrong with that ? I dont like the twist being given to this simple act of bravery being given to a heroic act by brave soldiers for their commander in chief

    They try to mock Obama when the uncouth trump pulls these acts:

    After Donald Trump failed to make it to the American war cemetery at Belleau in France at the weekend, the US president has been gently mocked by the official Twitter account of the French army.

    Using the hashtag #MondayMotivation, they posted a picture of a soldier training, with the caption: “Il y a de la pluie, mais c’est pas grave [it is raining, but it’s not a big deal].”

    Donald Trump has come under fire after holding an umbrella over himself — apparently leaving his wife and son unprotected from the elements.

    As reporters puzzled over Trump’s remarks—he stressed that the house of faith should have had better “protection”—the president walked. He carried his own umbrella in the rain. Then he reached the top of the stairs, and ever-so-slightly hesitates: Should he close the umbrella and carry it in side? Instead, he dropped the oversized umbrella, letting it roll around at the top of the stairs. And then he walked into the plane.
