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.”

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...

Former political figure Sarah Palin is calling for President Barack Obama to be impeached in an op-ed quickly seized upon by every wannabe comedian on Twitter.

Palin's scathing indictment on Breitbart, in which she likens Obama to an abusive husband and America to his battered wife, set the Internet ablaze.

Reactions on both sides then threw gasoline on it.

  • You Betcha
  • President Obama in Rome

In her view, it's Obama’s diabolical plan to have Mexicans take jobs from Americans, so as to strengthen his hold on power, and he should be ousted as a result.

While Sarah has plenty of fans who would love to see Obama out of office, an overwhelming majority of Tweets about her comments have been ... well ...

Given her choice of words, questionable grasp of facts and the fact that it's Sarah Palin, her condemnation of the "imperial" Obama sparked widespread ridicule:

Some choice reactions after the jump:

The West View News is a monthly publication in New York City's West Village with a circulation of approximately 20,000 subscribers.

But one article in its latest edition has now been viewed by far more people than that, thanks to one of the most controversial headlines you're ever likely to see in print.

The op-ed by author James Lincoln Collier is titled “N----r in the White House.”

The West View News Headline

The piece is actually a pro-Barack Obama article that criticizes the “racism” of far-right voters.

But most readers believe the newspaper is the one being racist by running such an attention-grabbing headline.

Barack Obama has come under major fire this week.

For his handling of the worsening situation in Iraq? No.

For reaching over the Sneeze Guard at Chipolte.

Prior to addressing the White House Summit on Working Families on Monday, the President of the United States stopped by the Mexican fast food joint, making his desired burrito bowl fillings as clear as possible.

While doing so, however, Obama breached the restaurant's code of etiquette, extending his entire forearm into no-man's land. What are you thinking, POTUS?!?

White House photographer Pete Souza Tweeted the picture soon after this embarrassing event took place, proving he's either a Chipolte newbie... or is secretly working for the Republicans.

A North Korean state-run news agency launched an insanely racist diatribe against U.S. President Barack Obama this month, unleashing one vile insult after another.

The rogue state called the U.S.'s first African-American head of state a "crossbreed with unclear blood" and a "wicked black monkey," among other terms.

The agency also said that Obama "still has the figure of monkey while the human race has evolved through millions of years," and went on to denounce him:

"It would be perfect for Obama to live with a group of monkeys in the world’s largest African natural zoo and lick the bread crumbs thrown by spectators."

  • Kim Jong Un on a Horse!
  • President Obama in Rome

The diatribe was recently brought to light by Josh Stanton, who blogs often about North Korea, following Obama's recent invitation to South Korea.

The issue of race has real resonance in North Korea, where the Stalinist regime has gone to great lengths to instill a sense of racial purity in its citizens.

Some background from The Washington Post: "When North Korea talks about race, it's almost always important, and telling about the state ideology."

President Barack Obama took at his critics and also himself during a self-deprecating speech last night at the 2014 White House Correspondents' Dinner.

The Commander-in-Chief noted his waning popularity on multiple occasions, while also mocking CNN for its coverage of the lost Malaysian airplane and Fox News for its insistence that he's really from Kenya.

Check out Obama's best quotes, zingers and one-liners below:

Yes we can?

We rolled out HealthCare.gov. That could've gone better. In 2008 my slogan was 'Yes, We Can.' In 2013, my slogan was 'Control, Alt, Delete.

Along with Obama, Joel McHale was featured at this annual, humor-based press event.

Biden also posted the shot on Twitter, grandly entitled "The First Selfie." His cover picture is also a photo of the pair with a tender arm on each other's back.

The first picture the Veep uploaded hours before was of his beloved Ray-Ban aviators in the foreground, with himself in the background out of focus.

Obama is, of course, no stranger to the selfie.
