Really? Nothing better to do than complain about a freaking umbrella?

“Marines are always out getting rained on. That’s sort of what we do,” said Capt. Eric Flanagan, a Marines spokesman. A request from the president to a Marine who serves at the White House, however, would be an “extenuating circumstance,” he said.

 

Flanagan also pointed to Title 10 of the U.S. Code, which states that members of the Marine Corps shall “perform such other duties as the President may direct.”

Pretty sure a direct order from a Commander in Chief trumps other rules.

I believe the issue is with Marine protocol, not the actual umbrella. That said, it's not really discussion worthy except to those who need a reason to further dislike the president. At this point, such trivial complaints shouldn't be needed for that.

"That's alright, we're gonna lube them up and ride 'em anyways. It'll be fine."

Perhaps the President didn't realize he was demeaning his Marines.
