(Jul. 9, 2017) — President Donald J. Trump saw the hat of one of the US  Marine Guards blow off his head due to heavy winds; he chased the hat, bent down, picked the hat off the ground, then put it back on the Marine Guard’s head.  Every American should watch this video of a caring US President’s respect and courtesy toward a US Marine.  Amazing!

There is a stark difference in how President Trump treats US Marine Guards, who he always returns hand salutes to, and how Obama treated a US Marine Guard when he occupied the Oval Office.  The press never recorded any other US President who did what Obama did with a US Marine Guard; the press actually recorded Obama having a US Marine Guard hold an umbrella over him to protect him from the rain, while the US Marine Guard holding the umbrella, who was not under the umbrella, had his “hat” and uniform get drenched.  Revealing!

  1. During Marine Corps Basic Training my Drill Instructor would say to recruits who would
    use the word “ASSUME” what his definition was. Hint, but… Many times in my life when I assumed things I got bit in the but. So I came up with a new/self concept. When in doubt, check it out.

    If I was on active duty when Mr. Obama was in the White House, I would have had Requested Mast. This was a procedure at the time I served (1980 to 1989), if I had a valid concern or complaint, I could request to go all the way up the chain of command to the Commandant of the Marine Corps.

    My complaint would have had been that Mr. Obama was an USURPER and that he fraudulently (pardon my pun) assumed the office of President and Commander and Chief of the Armed Forces. I have proof / evidence and have done some 40 Radio Shows and
    have been to DC and locally to present evidence to elected official. No, I am not an expert, but can hold my own.

    As an Honorable Discharge Marine, I did in fact do this procedure, but didn’t receive a reply.
    I sent this noted request to the Commandant of the Marine Corps / Washington D.C.

    In my opinion, I bet Trump has and will continue to demonstrate outstanding respect and
    treatment to all members of the Armed Forces. Guard are to guard and not hold umbrellas
    for anyone.

  2. All of the three Presudents before Obama (Bush, Clinton, Bush) were photographed with military personnel holding umbrellas for them.

    I would assume it was regular duty.

  3. In that Marine holding the umbrella for Obama, was that a legal/ authorized order?

    Can we ask, what other weird things did the Marine Honor Guard receive orders to do
    for Obama?

    Did any of these Marines Request Mast for any of Obama’s unauthorized orders?
