Of umbrellas and such. A study in contrasts. A Limerick.

Umbrellas: A hard task for some.

To Barry as hard as they come.

The most powerful man:

See him do what he can.

To fold it, try using your thumb!

This was the former President Barack Obama

He always had trouble handle an umbrella.look down on his notes and talk at the same time, so he commandeered the Marines to hold the umbrella for him. To be fair he commandeered another Marine to keep President Erdogan of Turkey dry. No such consideration  was given the audience.

But he couldn’t keep his own wife out of the rain either. It is difficult to hold an umbrella, wave, walk down the stairs and keep your wife dry, all  at the same time.

No, This is the way to handle an umbrella!

Nothing fancy, just do it. And keep your wife dry at the same time.
