People are losing their everlovin' minds over this video...

Conservative radio and TV host Sean Hannity was SHOCKED! As was Carl Rove...

But it turns out, sometimes the President's hands are just full...

Here's the thing...

Technically, the president isn't supposed to salute military officers. Because even though he's the commander-in-chief, he's a civilian. So General Eisenhower actually STOPPED saluting once he became president.

The first president who STARTED saluting was Ronald Reagan. After the controversy yesterday over Obama saluting a Marine with a COFFEE cup in his hand, the Marines reminded that there's no formal etiquette when it comes to the president.

So everybody needs to CALM DOWN. There are a plethora of things to be mad at President Obama for. Saluting with a coffee cup in his hand isn't one of them.

Pick your battles, people.
