Media silent as Obama tells fainting supporters to get help from 'Paralegals'
According to CBS News White House correspondent Mark Knoller, Obama
told supporters there were "paralegals" available to help those who felt
weak from the heat.
"Catching his mistake," Knoller tweeted, Obama corrected himself and told the crowd, "you don't need lawyers."
"Yes, we do need lawyers to help US opt out of Ocare penalties-turned taxes (sic)," responded Sarah Nelson.
"Obama, meaning to say paramedics are available if anyone feels weak,
says "paralegals" are around. Crowd laughs along with him," tweeted Roanoke Times Live.
Gehrke reported that in total, "21 people received medical treatment
at the event and one person was taken to a local hospital, out of a
crowd of 3,040. It was about 75 degrees in Roanoke this evening."
"We doubt the mainstream media will make a big deal. (Zero coverage, so far.) Hey, everyone makes mistakes, right? But can you imagine the uproar if Sarah Palin had made a gaffe like this?" a post at Twitchy asked.
"It’s a good thing his last name isn’t Bush," Jim Hoft wrote at the Gateway Pundit.
"How's it going, Sunshine?" he once asked while campaigning in Sunrise, Florida before the 2008 election.
"In case you missed it, this week, there was a tragedy in Kansas. Ten
thousand people died -- an entire town destroyed," he once said about a
Kansas tornado that killed 12 people.
It's no wonder that an overwhelming majority believe the media is biased and unethical.
