The Few, The Proud. The umbrella holders:

(I don’t really think Marines in dress blues have to stand next to the Pres. to look good)

Actually, its against Marine Uniform Regulations for that Marine to hold an umbrella.

:eyeroll:

Yes, because they weren’t honoring a request from the Commander in Chief or anything.

Same for Secret Service agents but occasionally they’ll do that type of thing.

I think contemporary presidents are a bit spoiled. As one commenter at the link reminds us, Teddy Roosevelt got shot and continued to give an hour long speech before seeking a doctor, lol.

Thank God for the folded up speech in his pocket, huh?

Obi's Sister May 17, 2013 at 8:16 am

Any Marine in dress blues, any time, anywhere, can stand next to me, umbrella optional.

Did yall see where those racist bastards indicted Tyrone Brooks? What is the world coming to?

Dr Wolf: damage control to minimize these IRS/WH stories was supposed to be IRS Commish Steven Miller being sacrificed (golden parachuted retired).
