NEW YORK — President Barack Obama is taking some heat for how he saluted Marines on Tuesday.
Obama walked off Marine One and saluted Marines with a cup of coffee in his hand as he was on his way back from a United Nations event on climate change and an address on airstrikes in Syria.
Some Instagram users found the salute “un-presidential” and another wrote, “Hopefully it was just a slip by this President.”
Others say it’s nitpicking.
“People are dying from disease, abuse or even hunger,” another wrote. “Priorities.”
