While delivering a speech on the glitches in the Affordable Healthcare website, a woman began to get lightheaded.
See what we’re chatting about over hot coffee:
• President Barack Obama, in true heroic fashion, caught a pregnant woman during his Affordable Healthcare speech yesterday. While delivering remarks on the website glitches, Karmel Allison began to lose her balance. Obama immediately stepped in her direction to assist the wobbly woman saying, “You’re OK. I’m right here. I got you.” He joked before returning to his speech, “This happens when I talk too long.” Officials quickly came to escort Allison off the stage. She later tweeted, “I’m OK world—just got a little lightheaded. Thanks, @BarackObama for catching me! And good thing this pregnant diabetic is pregnant :).” Check out the mini rescue here.
