Post by AJRC »

President Barack Obama has caught a woman who was apparently about to faint while he hosted a press conference at the White House.

Nice to see politicians showing their caring human side every once in a while.

It is, yes, but he wouldnt've looked very good had he just stood back and let a pregnant woman drop, would he? I think Vikki's right though. It was a reflex action.
