‘I had to salute with a prosthetic arm’: Obama’s #LatteSalute outrages

As Twitchy reported, President Obama “saluted” two Marines this afternoon with a coffee cup in hand. It’s since been dubbed the “latte salute” in the media and has resulted in outrage across Twitter.

First evidence Obama actually doesn't care about optics? The latte salute.

If there was ever any doubt as 2 the level of regard Obama holds for our military, this latte salute seals the deal http://t.co/9Hy6QeN4hM

Obama saluting our Marines with a latte in his hand is a perfect example of how much he truly respects our military. pic.twitter.com/iNHhqI35Qt

Wait. He saluted using the hand with which he was holding the latte? If only he'd scalded his face with milk froth.

Hail to the Chief, except when he has a latte. Then he is busy, so don't make him salute. http://t.co/ZpFrm5DXlr

Why defend saluting a US Marine w/ a coffee cup? It's disrespectful. Is it the end of world? Nope. But Disrespectful? Yup.

I'm not one to jump over shit like this, and I'm liberal. But very poor moment for Prez Obama today. Not cool. http://t.co/mVwS6xslFq

"And now for commentary on Obama's latte salute are three civilians."

— J.R. Salzman (@jrsalzman) September 23, 2014

If you had served in the military you'd know you're allowed to have something in your left hand while you salute with your right. @jagxfr

— J.R. Salzman (@jrsalzman) September 24, 2014

@jrsalzman Can you teach POTUS how to salute? Please.

— Texbarb (@texbarb) September 24, 2014

“Optics” and the military are not something that go together with President Obama.

A proper military salute isn't trivial. It's also not a scandal. But Commander-in-Chief needs to get it right out of respect & for optics.

— Rory Cooper (@rorycooper) September 23, 2014

Strangest part of the casual coffee cup salute Instagram is that it was released…by the White House. http://t.co/AoHjj6dUkf

— Rory Cooper (@rorycooper) September 23, 2014

Update: A segment on “Hannity” on the salute demonstrated again how important those “optics” are.

Have you seen Obama's "latte salute" to the Marines? Tune into #Hannity right now.

— Sean Hannity (@seanhannity) September 24, 2014

@seanhannity He has no respect for anyone. He needs to be removed from office.

@seanhannity those men protect him in transport and would die to protect he and his family. What a joke he is.
