Obama Summons Marines For Umbrellas During Press Conference

Obama Press Conference Takes Awkward Turn

Things got awkward during President Barack Obama's joint press conference with Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayipp Erdogan on Thursday.

While addressing the recent IRS scandal, Obama noticed a change in weather and summoned Marines with umbrellas to shield them during the drizzle. Obama noted that while he has a change of clothes, the Turkish prime minister may not.

Almost immediately, two Marines armed with umbrellas stood readily by Obama and Erdogan's side.
