HOLY COW THIS IS USEFUL, thank you!!
I NEED THIS BECAUSE REASONS
Thought you couldn’t hate Obama any more than you already do? This is absolutely absurd. Just the mere fact that he would ask (order) a Marine to do this shows he has no concept of respect. Think this is photoshopped? I got it from the CNN website. It’s completely true. Do a web search and you’ll see multiple sources. This President is absolutely worthless.
Title ten of the Armed Forces US Code says that members of the military do what is asked of them by their Commander in Chief. The man next to them is the Prime Minister of Hungary. It would be bad show to let the rain fall on the head of a visiting diplomat, and any Marine on Presidential duty is honored to be there. This is not about the umbrellas, it is about treating visiting dignitaries with honor and respect. To only have an umbrella over the head of Prime Minister Orban would be a sign of superiority or strength over the visiting PM. The president did the correct thing in the situation by showing enough respect for his fellow leader and giving them both an equal platform.
Y’all need to stop freaking the fuck out over stupid shit like umbrellas.
also he didn’t think he even needed the umbrella, thus resulting in this picture of him checking if it was even raining even more aka my favorite picture of him ever:
Speaking as the son of a former Army officer, OP’s post is even more disrespectful towards the Marine in the photo - and the US military in general - than it is towards the President. It shows that literally the only part of being in the military OP has respect for is the part that involves killing others and that is not the biggest part of the military by a long shot and is not the part of military service most members joined for. People join the military to serve the nation, and part of that is stuff like this. There is a reason active duty military do not and are not supposed to discuss their opinions of a President during that President’s term. The President is the Commander in Chief regardless of who they actually are. Republican, Democrat, third party, no longer existent party: it does not matter. Being art of the White House guard and the Presidential detail, especially when a foreign dignitary or leader is present, is one of the biggest honors in the military.
But it’s a fucking umbrella, so complaining about it in the first place is massively moronic.
OP postin’ some Fox news Facebook level shit.
Umbrellas are serious business
plus look at the second picture, the other dude has a marine holding his umbrella also.
Isabella Kauakea Yau Yung Aiona Abbott: Why she kicks ass
- She was an educator and ethnobotanist from Hawaii, who became the first Hawaiian woman to receive a Ph.D. in science, and the leading expert on Pacific algae.
- She wrote eight books and over 150 publications on Hawaiian seaweed, from scientific reference guides to books about her ethnobotanical studies—which reveal that under the kapu system, women in ancient Hawaiian culture were the community’s seaweed harvesters. (Before her publications, no extensive resource existed on Hawaiian limu.)
- She was considered the world’s leading expert on Hawaiian seaweeds, known in the Hawaiian language as limu. She was credited with discovering over 200 species, with several named after her, including the Rhodomelaceae family (red algae) genus of Abbottella. This has earned her the nickname “first lady of limu”.
- She was a professor emerita of the University of Hawaii, as well as Stanford University, where she taught for 32 years, and was the first female professor in the school’s biological sciences department.
- She grew up in Honolulu, and graduated from Kamehameha Schools in 1937. She received her undergraduate degree in botany at the University of Hawaii at Mānoa in 1941, a master’s degree in botany from the University of Michigan in 1942, and a Ph.D from the University of California, Berkeley in 1950.
- In 1960 she started teaching summer classes as a lecturer at Hopkins. She compiled a book on Marine algae of the Monterey peninsula, which later was expanded to include all of the California coast. In 1972 Stanford took the unusual step of promoting her directly to a full professor. In 1982 both Abbotts retired and moved back to Hawaii, where she was hired by the University of Hawaii to study ethnobotany, the interaction of humans and plants.
- In 1997 she received the Gilbert Morgan Smith Medal from the National Academy of Sciences. In 2008 she received a lifetime achievement award from the Hawaii Department of Land and Natural Resources for her studies of coral reefs.
- She was the G. P. Wilder Professor of Botany from 1980 until her retirement, and then was professor emerita of Botany at the University of Hawaii. She served on the board of directors of the Bernice P. Bishop Museum.
- In November 1997 she co-authored an essay in the Honolulu Star-Bulletin criticizing the trustees of Kamehameha Schools, which led to its reorganization.
- In 2005, she was named a Living Treasure of Hawai’i. Abbott died October 28, 2010 at the age of 91 at her home in Honolulu.
Fun fact time: many of my old acquaintances still make joking comments whenever they see me wearing pink, because as a child (and honestly pretty much right up to high school) I would refuse to associate with any pink objects.
It wasn’t because I didn’t like pink, it was because since I appeared female I was supposed to/ it was immediately assumed that I did and therefore it pissed me the ever-loving fuck off. I was ashamed to like it, which is terrible because pink is an awesome color. But when you shove it down young girls throats it gets really old, really fast.
Give the child the fucking rainbow, and if they pick pink, it’s not because they are female and/or effeminate, it’s because they like the color pink.
