President Barack Obama returned a formal military salute with a one-handed coffee-cup salute Tuesday.
White House aides posted the salute video on Instagram.
The commander in chief offered the coffee-cup salute as he walked off his U.S. Marine Corps helicopter in New York.

“In some situations, the salute is not appropriate. In general, do not salute when… carrying articles with both hands or being otherwise so occupied as to make saluting impractical.”
Some of the comments on the Instagram account were very critical of Obama’s unconventional salutation.
One person wrote: “Saluting with a coffeee cup on his hand what a disgrace… Sure doesnt know the shit u go through just to wear that uniform.
Another commented, “Put the damn coffee down and salute correctly.”
