Did Obama just snub the Marines AGAIN? President breaches military protocol for second time in a week by failing to return this corporal's salute

While boarding Marine One, the presidential helicopter, on Friday, Obama walked past a saluting Marine corporal and strode up the boarding stairs without returning the salute. The President, the military commander-in-chief, clearly recognized the gaffe but made it worse, coming back down the boarding steps for just a handshake - not a salute. The blunder came in the same week Obama appeared to break military protocol by forcing a Marine (inset) to hold an umbrella for him.
