O’Brien, however, refused to quote out loud the phrase “screw Obama”, which Stein posted on a message board. “I won’t read the whole thing,” she said, and read the quote “As an active duty Marine, I say’ that word ‘Obama.’” It made for an awkward moment during what was otherwise a standard interview.
Stein admits that his words were “tasteless” but says they were shared on a closed forum and were only up for about five minutes.
But to get the full extent of why Stein is being given the boot from the Marine Corps, you must read the fuller context of the quote: “As an active duty Marine, I say screw Obama and I will not follow any orders from him.” That’s insubordination and that’s why Stein is being shown the door.
