Sarah Palin Receives Twitter Backlash for ‘Umbrella-Gate’ Post

Sarah Palin was forcefully rebuked by Twitter followers in response to a tweet she posted this Thursday.

The tweet slammed President Obama for having two Marines hold umbrellas for him and Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan during a press conference in the White House Rose Garden.

But Andrew Kaczynski of the news site BuzzFeed was quick to point out Palin’s hypocrisy on the “Umbrella-Gate” scandal, with an image that soon went viral afterwards.

Many of Palin’s followers on Twitter did not take kindly to her hypocrisy as well.

    Yes, Ms. Palin, and most holders of public office finish their terms. #hypocrisy

    Just tweeted this to the idiot: @SarahPalinUSA Funny, there are pictures out there of your beloved Reagan and Bush having servicemen hold umbrellas for them. #StupidTwit.

    I have seen many inane comments online about this new non issue. One was an irate screed about how it was ILLEGAL for a Marine in uniform to hold the umbrella, citing the regulation which forbids a male Marine CARRYING an umbrella. Anyone with half a brain (which of course excuses Sarah since she doesn’t come close to half a brain) could read the regulation and realize that it does not apply in this case. The Marines in question were not carrying umbrellas, they were holding them for the President and the Prime minister something that does not in any way violate the Marines dress code. This is also far from the first time this has occurred, what makes the difference here is the color of the President’s skin, after all this was a good WHITE boy holding an umbrella for an “uppity” black man who “doesn’t know his place.”

    I hadn’t looked closely before at the photo of the POTUS and prime minister; but check out how the two Marines are in exactly the same posture, right down to their hands. You think this exigency was not planned for in advance by their commanding officer (and I don’t mean the CiC)?

    I’m sorry, after reading several comments about Sarah Palin and the umbrella gate stating she probably thinks Benghazi is an ointment. That statement is in itself offensive when four Americans patriots died in Benghazi for lack of enough support (ointment) from our Government…

    Four Thousand brave American soliders died needlessly in a war based on a lie proven false documents and pictures to justify going to Iraq all lies and you have no problem with that and it was shown on CSPAN that offical documents showing that they offered additional security and the ambassador turned it down. You are more concerned about 4 people who died tragically but not 4THOUSAND that died needlessly based on a LIE. Yeah you proved to be nothing more than a bigot and a hypocrite….Must be a teabagger..lol.

    It’s really more about the fact that to Republicans Barack Obama is not the President of the United States entitled to be treated accordingly, but some black guy who is beneath them. It’s evident in their “criticisms” that it was in violation of Marine dress code. The President is in command, his word > dress code book. Which should be instinctive knowledge to any American.

    Sarah Palin really can’t seem to help herself. Hypocrisy just comes so naturally to her.

    That’s not fair – she is idiotic not hypocritical.

    Hypocrisy suggests the capacity for thinking about things and making a false decision based on dishonesty whereas she sincerely believes all this stuff.

    Norm if you find that offensive I highly recommend seeking professional help. That in no way is an offensive statement. What’s offensive is how the right uses that very unfortunate incident as an excude to hammer this administration. If jason chaffetz is so determined and so passionate losing “American patriots,” why does he not look into all the embassy attacks from past administrations? The answer is simple I don’t think I need to spell it out for you.
