President Obama ‘Latte Salute’: Obama’s ‘Un-Presidential’ Salute To Marines With Coffee Cup In Hand [Video]

President Obama executed a “latte salute” to a pair of Marines while holding a cup of coffee in his hand. New York Daily News reports that the incident occurred in Manhattan as Obama was heading to the United Nations for a meeting about airstrikes in Syria. He was stepping off the Marine One helicopter and didn’t have his right hand free to make a proper salute.

As the video reveals below, Obama quickly saluted the Marine guards as though it was more of a hindrance than respected protocol. A significant amount of criticism is hitting the President for this move.

One Marine voices his disapproval over Obama’s coffee cup salute.

“Saluting with a cup of coffee?! I love Obama, but as a Marine I disapprove of that 100%.”
