White House Intern Faints During 1st Press Conference
Talk about a bad first day on the job. An unnamed White House intern fainted during a White House press briefing yesterday. Making matters worse, it was all caught on video…and was on TV!
According to The Washington Post, her boss, Josh Earnest, was conducting only his second media confab since taking over for Jay Carney as President Obama’s press secretary, and brought the young lady water after she took a spill. Another aide fetched her some M&Ms to bring her blood sugar up.
Last October, a pregnant woman fainted during one of Obama’s speeches on the Affordable Care Act. “This is what happens when I talk too long,” the President joked after catching the woman mid-fall.
