Uhhhh boy. And he was on his way to give the commencement address at Annapolis.
President Obama Friday morning forgot to salute the Marine who ceremonially stands guard as the president boards his helicopter. Instead, merrily chomping his Nicorette, Obama sauntered past the man and hopped up the steps to the chopper.
I’ve never seen this happen in 15 years covering the White House.
Someone clearly noticed, or Obama remembered, and he came back out and shook the Marine’s hand. Which I’ve also never seen.
Anyway, here you go.
