Kate77sexy: Its jus too wrong,even if der pals,he should respect the president cus der are cameras all around....am ashamed of our president .

Aunty, you are very wrong with that conclusion.

Let me explain the pix to you.
First, when a military man salutes,the hand moves up from the side of his trousers, to his face and back to the side of his trousers again.

In the pix, the camera captured the officer's hand midway, coming down to the side of his trousers while GEJ has already stretched out his hand for a handshake. That is to say, the officer has not completed the saluting process before GEJ stretched hand for a handshake. Note that GEJ does not need to wait for the officer to complete saluting before stretching out his hand for the handshake. Rather, it is the officer who must use his sense to salute as quickly as possible before receiving the handshake. Also, note that the officer must complete the saluting process before receiving the handshake. No short cut.

So, nothing is wrong with the pix. The President is not wrong. Rather, it is the cameraman that captured the situation too early.

Billyonaire: I was there. The Soldier saluted GEJ and was dropping his hand when President stretched his hand and gave him a warmed and comfortable handshake. It shows human president. The military psyche of decades has eroded in your minds how civil presidents can be, You always expect to see a Jack Bristow kind of face President.
