The weather didn't exactly cooperate with Thursday's Rose Garden news conference at the White House.
A drizzle began before Obama and his guest, Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, arrived. As Obama began answering questions, the rain began to fall harder, prompting Obama to call in a couple Marines with umbrellas.
"I've got a change of suits, but I don't know about our prime minister," Obama said, gesturing to Erdogan.
The Marines held the umbrellas over the heads up Obama and Erdogan and were later dismissed when the rain let up.
Needless to say, the rain prompted all kinds of chatter on Twitter. Here are some of the highlights:
"Steady rain of bad news at White House continues"

The umbrella wouldn't have been necessary if Obama hadn't made it rain. — Chris L. Robinson (@chrisLrob) May 16, 2013
@jonfavs The rain poured down on the WH press corps Thursday, but it was Obama who was all wet after being abandoned by the DC establishment
