Some are calling it the “latte salute.” Others prefer the coffee salute, and/or the single most baffling display of disrespect in the history of the U.S.A.

Call it what you want, President Barack Obama saluted two Marines today while holding a hot beverage ... in a video posted by the White House's OWN INSTAGRAM!

Fascinating moments in social media fails.

Obama stepped off Marine One at the Wall Street landing zone in New York City this afternoon, en route to the United Nations General Assembly.

As he saluted two Marines at the bottom of the stairs, the sunglasses-wearing president only managed a half-salute, since he was holding a coffee and all.

The odd gesture appeared in an Instagram video posted by the White House's account, which is bizarre and begs many questions in and of itself.

Why share something like this when it's just asking for ridicule - which it got, and then some - with critics slamming the unorthodox salute as “un-presidential.”

Suri Cruise. Shiloh Pitt. Nori West. Prince George. Blue Ivy Carter.

These celebrity offspring are the result of two near-perfect specimens coming together to reproduce. Kim Kardashian and Kanye West? Not perfect.

But they sure do make cute babies. (RIP Joan Rivers.)

We thought we'd take a look at a few other celebrity face mashups to see what the resulting individual might look like. The results? Take a look:

Emma Watson and Anna Kendrick
Is it just us or do Emma Watson and Anna Kendrick make the most beautiful woman in the world?

The results? The results are freaking perfection, that's what!

Seriously, could science just hurry up and figure out a way to let Emma Watson and Anna Kendrick morph genetically and become one person?

It's 2014! Why isn't this possible!?! We have no idea.

This has been a rough few days for President Barack Obama.

First, a kid totally hated being in the Oval Office with him.

Then, Michael Moore referred to Obama as a huge disappointment.

Now, a student named Madison at a D.C. charter school has reacted to a surprise visit by the President by leveling with the most powerful man on the planet and telling him:

I sort of wish you had been Beyonce.

HA! Watch her make this admission and then try to backpedal from it, all while Obama takes it in stride. He's used to criticism these days...

Michael Moore doesn't mince words, and that includes when talking about President Barack Obama, a man you'd think he would mostly see eye-to-eye with.

Not so much. Asked by The Hollywood Reporter about Obama's claim to have saved Detroit, the Michigan native and liberal filmmaker bristled.

Michael Moore, Barack Obama

"I wrote Obama a letter and I said, 'Dear President Obama, God Bless you, but you did not save Detroit. You saved General Motors. You saved Chrysler.'"

"Detroit at this point would stand a better chance," the 60-year-old Moore said, "if it were an Iraqi or Syrian city in term of getting some sort of help."

"And I think Obama sadly has done many, many good things, but he's also been a huge disappointment," Moore added, not holding back on the POTUS.

"I really wish somebody would say to him - maybe I'll say to him in case he's watching, you do read The Hollywood Reporter Mr. President, don't you?"

"When the history is written of this era this is how you'll be remembered: he was the first black president. OK, not a bad accomplishment, but that's it."

Many around the country are not thrilled with Barack Obama these days.

The President's approval rating has been hovering around 40% for weeks now.

But you may be surprised to discover who the Obama’s biggest critic is these days. Sarah Palin? Nope. This kid!

In an awesomely hilarious photo posted by the White House's own Flickr account, the President is meeting with a departing Secret Service agent as the man's son “dives into a couch,” as described by the administration itself.

Seriously, this toddler would rather be ANYwhere except the Oval Office, like watching a rocket launch...

Bored in the Oval Office

You may find this hard to believe, but not everyone cares about Keeping Up with the Kardashians.

In fact, some very famous names have no interest at all in what this family does on a daily, weekly or monthly basis. Incredible, we know!

Over the past couple years, stars from the world of movies, music and politics have come out against Kim Kardashian and company, slamming them as "bitches," "idiots" and saying these reality stars should get run over by a car.

Really, someone you've definitely heard of said that.

What other celebrities aren't fans of the Kardashians? Who hearkens back to the day when one would be ashamed of a sex tape and/or naked photos? Who believe Kim and Kanye West set a terrible example for our youth?

Find out now:

Cher
Cher has Tweeted that the Kardashians are "bitches" who should be "drop kicked down the freeway." She made a point of saying she is NOT kidding.

United States President Barack Obama has got one less problem without ... well, he doesn't really. Guy has problems coming out the ears these days.

The world is a friggin' mess, and whatever you think of him politically, he could use a little relief from the 99-plus problems he encounters on a daily basis.

Perhaps the latest lip dub clip from YouTube genius Baracksdubs, in which he covers Ariana Grande's "Problem," will serve as inspiration. Check it out:

The spliced-together video, in keeping with previous Obama lip dub classics, features rapid-fire clips of the POTUS speaking the words to the hit single.

Much like Obama singing "Fancy" by Iggy Azalea, it's a lot easier to understand the lyrics in his near-perfect diction than in the actual song. Ironic.

Iggy, of course, lends her rap stylings to "Problem," but Obama doesn't get to her verse, sadly. Still, this joins a growing list of Barack dub winners.

Pitbull and Kesha's "Timber," Carly Rae Jepsen's "Call Me Maybe," Daft Punk's "Get Lucky" and many others have been sung by the Prez in recent years.

Check out lots more lip dub gems after the jump:

When it comes to that miscreant Justin Bieber, neither Canada nor the United States seems to want the kid, if Olympic hockey billboards are to be believed.

He's Canadian, just for the record. Sorry, you're not perfect after all, Canada.

Other famous faces, however, actually bring honor and pride to their countries of birth, so much so that America would gladly claim them for her own.

Many stars born elsewhere who work primarily in the U.S. seek dual citizenship, and that's actually pretty neat if you think about it. They love us! They really love us!

They seem as American as apple pie, but plenty of your favorite stars weren't born here at all. See 29 examples below ... and you'll never believe #29:

Natalie Portman
Natalie Portman, nee Natalie Hershlag, was born in Jerusalem in 1981. She has dual citizenship in the United States and Israel.

They could each enjoy a long career as Major League Baseball relievers, but the following left-handed stars have chosen a different field in which to utilize their eccentricity.

Some are singers. Some are actors and actresses. One is the President of the United States!

But they all have one thing in common: they write with their non-right hand. So weird, right?!?

So, in honor of Left Handers Day (really, it's a thing; look it up), THG is excited to presented snapshots of 21 famous southpaws.

They may hate the set-up of spiral notebooks, but we love what they add to our lives. Long may they be left(y) behind!

Lady Gaga
Lady Gaga might be pointing to her engagement ring from Taylor Kinney here, but she could just as well be showing off the fact that she's left-handed.

P.S. Did you also know that yesterday was World Elephant Day?

President Barack Obama may be getting sued by John Boehner, smacked down left and right by the Supreme Court and unable to break through gridlock in D.C.

But he sure is "Fancy" and bringin' '88 back!

The hippest leader of the free world ever takes on Iggy Azalea's smash hit in the latest lip dub masterstroke by YouTube genius Baracksdubs. Check it out here!

As always, the spliced-together video features rapid-fire clips of the POTUS in various settings addressing various domestic and international issues.

Only, this time, the montage of Obama statements are edited to the lyrics of Azalea's hit ... and actually a lot easier to understand than the original song.

The brilliant cover is one among many others, including Pitbull and Kesha's "Timber," Carly Rae Jepsen's "Call Me Maybe" and Daft Punk's "Get Lucky."

Azalea's "Fancy" also recently received star treatment in the form of Weird Al Yankovic's "Handy" parody, one of several new gems he released this summer.

Check out lots of other lip dub classics after the jump!
