This tweet a short time ago from Jamie Dupree had such a familiar ring to it after someone allegedly keeled over at an Obama campaign stop:
“They’ll be okay, just make sure to give them space“
Gee, it was only eight days ago something remarkably similar occurred:
“Looks like somebody might’ve fainted up here, have we got . . . Somebody . . . EMS . . . Somebody . . Don’t worry about it: Folks do this all the time in my meetings,” Obama said. “You always got to eat before you stand for a long time–that’s a little tip. They’ll be OK, just make sure–give them a little room.
Uh, uh, uh…
“Just give him some space,” Obama said, before resuming his speech.
These coincidences are remarkable:
“That happens sometimes in the crowd, just give him some space. If the medics can make sure to check on them, in the meantime just make sure that they’ve got some air,” the president said.
Okay, we’ll be all right. They probably were just standing too long. Just give them a little space. Where’s our EMS folks? They’ll be okay. Just give him a little space. This happens sometimes. You guys been here a while after the magging?
Is the text plugged into TOTUS already? Warning, Bammy, in case of “fainting” read this line!
Update: The New York Times has a report from today, but uses it as a reminder that people should eat right something.
