Obama Forces Marine To Break Military Rule By Holding Umbrella For Him
Marine Corps regulations forbid Marines from holding umbrellas while in uniform, even if ordered to do so by the President. Nonetheless, the Commander in Chief ordered Marines to hold umbrellas for him and Turkey's Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogen during a press conference held in the Rose Garden yesterday. You can tell by the photo how light the rain was by the appearance of the reporters at the press conference, who don't look particularly wet sitting in the rain.
