People often say that a picture is worth a thousand words. We have seen a number of differences between former President Obama and current President Trump, but this picture sums it up best.
President Trump stood in the White House Rose Garden and spoke with reporters about his meeting on the DACA act. While watching the president speak, people couldn’t help but notice that he was doing what millions of people around the world do when it rains — he was holding his umbrella. This is a far cry from what we saw when Obama was in the same position. He needed a marine to hold his umbrella, even though Marines typically frown on the practice, according to Telegraph UK.
The Left is constantly trying to batter the president based on his alleged racism and mistreatment of people. They never seem to be able to back up their arguments, because their arguments are not based in reality.
In this case, however, we can see exactly how Obama treats the people around him compared to President Trump. Obama was treating this hard-working Marine as if he was just a prop who was there to hang items on, like a coat rack.
Telegraph reports that in most cases, female Marines are allowed to carry regular black umbrellas. On the other hand, there is no specific rule for males, which usually means that umbrellas are not to be carried by men.
However, Capt. Eric Flanagan stated that “The marines that are at the White House work for the President and so if he orders them to hold umbrellas, they hold umbrellas.” From that description, it sounds like the Marines are ordered to break the code if the president so-insists.
The photos show not only a stark contrast in the way the current and former president treats the people around them, but it also mirrors them as individuals and policy makers — if you can see beyond to that level.
President Obama believes in Socialist-like behavior. In his ideal world, everyone helps everyone, regardless of the obvious disadvantages that some people will face breaking their backs for others. As you can see, the Marine is not ready to help himself if he has to make sure that Obama’s hair doesn’t get wet.
President Trump, on the other hand, is more self-reliant. The picture reflected this mentality when he decided to carry his own umbrella, because he is an adult, and adults should carry their own weight.
Another problem many have with the way that Obama forced this military man to hold his umbrella is his absolute disrespect. This Marine has seen more than Obama or President Trump could imagine.
Trump is aware of this, and would never task him with a menial task like holding an umbrella.
Obama thinks that everyone should grovel at his feet because he was the president, and that simply isn’t the case. If you want respect, you have to earn it, like everyone else. Through Obama’s eight years, he hemorrhaged respect, used it up, and left his voters high and dry — something President Trump would never dream of doing.
