Obama Salute With Beverage Cup Sets Off Twitter Storm

Posted: Updated:
NBC - A backlash is brewing after a video emerged showing President Barack Obama holding a coffee cup while saluting Marines. 

The White House Instagram account posted footage of Obama offering the informal salute as he climbed down from Marine One after landing in New York for the United Nations General Assembly. Criticism soon spilled over on Twitter.

NRCC        ? @NRCC Follow Wait - did President Obama just salute the Marines with a LATTE in his hand?!

Sam Stein        ? @samsteinhp Where does Obama's coffee cup salute rank in terms of sheer awfulness next to his not wearing a jacket in the Oval that time?
