Obama is catching a lot of heat from conservatives for his recent “latte salute.”
On Tuesday, while heading to New York for a United Nations talk on airstrikes in Syria and climate change, the President got off of his Marine One helicopter and saluted a pair of Marines with a cup of coffee in hand. The video was posted to the White House Instagram account and has since cause a wave of criticism from people who are saying that saluting solders with a coffee cup in hand is disrespectful.
Included in the list of critics, was former Congressman, retired Army Lieutenant Colonel, and author of Guardian of the Republic, Allen West.
Fox’s Sean Hannity also spoke out about the video clip by asking if Bush would ever do a “shocking” latte salute? Well, he may not have done a latte salute, we’ve found that he has done a “doggie salute.”
And while the video clip’s comment section on Instagram is filled with criticism, there are people who are defending the president and his actions.
