Obama to Marines: Hey, come here and hold an umbrella over me and Erdogan, will you?

Via Greg Hengler, I’m sure this has been done before by other presidents, simply because the optics are sufficiently bad that Team O wouldn’t have tried it without precedent to cite in its defense. Free advice to future administrations, then: Discontinue this practice. These guys aren’t valets. The slogan is not “The Few, the Proud, the Umbrella Stands.” The good news is, we live in a golden age of technological progress where all manner of standalone head coverings are available in case the skies look cloudy for the next Rose Garden press conference. Imagine a small, thin, clear plastic tarp raised a few feet above the podiums, out of the camera’s line of sight, shielding The One and America’s Hamas-supporting Islamist cretin “ally” from nature’s wrath. Magical.

As for the substance of the presser: He makes no apologies for vigorously investigating national-security leaks, even if that involves a de facto dragnet of 20 reporters’ phone records; and he has complete confidence in Eric Holder. Basically what you’d expect.
