Watch: Reporter Falls Ill During Obama Presser

Screenshot
President Obama’s press conference on Friday was briefly paused due to a reporter who fell ill during the conference. Obama paused one of his answers to ask what was going on after he noticed something was wrong, after being told that one of the reporters wasn’t feeling well, Obama asked if someone would be willing to go his doctor’s office and get one of the doctors to help. Obama briefly resumed his answer, before stopping again after someone began asking for a doctor. Obama asked, “Can somebody help out, please, and get Doc Jackson in here?” During the incident, one of the reporters thanked the president for stopping, to which he replied, “Of course.” He further asked people to give the reporter some room while they waited for the doctor to arrive. Obama also gave directions to the doctor’s office shortly before the doctor arrived. (Video via Fox 10 Phoenix) Follow Ian Hanchett on Twitter @IanHanchett
