As someone who has been to The White House and in person, saw President Obama get off Marine One and salute the Marines, I can tell you two things.
1. The “LatteGate” as it is being dubbed isn’t making a point in the here and now (like “wow Obama was a little disrespectful IN THAT ONE MOMENT), the people beating the drum the loudest on this are trying to quietly make the point of “WOW OBAMA REALLY HATES THE MILITARY, LOOK AT HIS CONTEMPT THAT HE HAS FOR OUR ARMED SERVICEMEN AND WOMEN. 6 YEARS AND A HATRED OF OUR ARMED FORCES FROM BARACK.” This is complete and utter bullshit, because we know those who beat the drum the loudest on these tiny issues (Remember the giant binder clip incident?) that unintelligent, reactionary, simple fucking morons make, because The Daily Caller dictates their political views and points.
2. SHUT THE FUCK UP! You know nothing!
But don’t worry, next week Obama will be seen doing something simple and it will be all over Fox and Friends and Breitbart, like the moral foundation of the country has just melted to a puddle of slop. MOM JEANS GATE Anyone?
