President Obama Stops Pregnant Woman From Fainting During Health Care Speech

by at . Comments

President Barack Obama stopped to help a pregnant woman on the verge of fainting during a speech he gave on health care in Washington, D.C., today.

Nearly 30 minutes into his speech, under the hot sun, a pregnant female supporter standing behind the Commander-in-Chief began to feel lightheaded.

Fortunately for the mom-to-be, Obama became aware of what was going on over his shoulder and turned around to lend Karmel Allison some support.

NOTE: This type of assistance is not covered under the Affordable Care Act.

"I gotcha, you're OK," Obama said as he put his arm out to steady her, and went on to joke, "No, no. You're OK. This happens when I talk too long."

Quickly afterward, a White House aide came to escort Allison off the stage as the President continued his speech, which came to end shortly thereafter.

Later, the expectant mother, who revealed that she's suffering from Type 1 Diabetes, made sure to extend her gratitude to POTUS on Twitter:

"I'm ok world - just got a little lightheaded.Thanks, @BarackObama for catching me! And good thing this pregnant diabetic is pregnant :)."

For his part, Obama sought to quell some of the lingering doubts and frustration with the new health care law, which has been embroiled in controversy.

Not only did it play a role in the government shutdown, but the program's long-awaited rollout this month has been marred by technical glitches galore.

"Our goal has always been to declare that in this country the security of health care is not a privilege for a fortunate few, it's a right for all to enjoy," he said.

"That's what the Affordable Care Act's all about. That's it's promise. And I intend to deliver on that promise. Thank you very much, everybody. God bless you."

Obamacare: Save it or sink it?

Obama is trying his best to cause chaos in this country and he hates what America represents- FREEDOM. I curse and hate his socialist followers.

Its obvious to me that the ACA is a poorly thought out and poorly implemented program that will cause innumerable cost to even fix their website. While I believe that all Americans should have access to affordable healthcare, this particular program will severely hurt most Americans as we can already see by huge jumps in premiums. The millionaires and gazillionaires are the only ones that won't feel it.

Obama has all of his Liberal Media crew cleaning up his shit. They are poison and they people who voted for him show have the shit slapped out of them.

Obama is proving to be what we all thought he would be- communist.. He realizes there are more people that have desperate needs- majority, so he wants to make the people who have saved all there life to pay. Obamacare has already caused many to lose their own insurance because it doesn't meet Obamacare base standards and now they cannot sign up. Obama could not fix a bicycle. He has destroyed my country.

Remember when Obama swatted a fly during a televised sit-down interview?
Tea Party pundits have uncovered proof that the fly was a hired shill, a dipteran actor with a suicide complex. Bottom line: There's not enough tin foil available in the world to meet the addiction needs of tea-chugging conspiracy theorists.

Conspiracy? Are you kidding? We are an entitlement state- what's to conspire about. He will not answer a question. How could anyone doubt the self destructive nature of him. That's the trouble with Liberals they can't report the news without 1st editing it. Democrats are a cancer.

$500 million has been spent on the OBAMA CARELESS Heath care website and only 180k have signed up because it's in shambles. They had 3 years to get this ready. It's a website- any freshman college student could have had it on line for $5000. Jay Carney, Obama and many others cannot tell anyone the exact problem or exactly how many are signing up per day. They know nothing and they want to take over the entire Healtcare program. This administration is the biggest bunch of bumbling idiots. If those who voted for him are in misery and you wanted company then you have won. Now we are all in a river of shit.
