White House intern faints on her first day
Either she’s not cut out for the job, or it’s all up from here for an White House intern who fainted on her first day.
The comms intern fainted during a press briefing today, bringing an early close to the event.
The intern, who didn’t wanted to be named by media, told Politico she had been feeling “faint” earlier, despite eating lunch.
White House officials said it was the woman’s first day on the job, along with a group of other new comms interns.
CSPAN news footage shows her leaning against a wall, before her head rolled and she collapsed on the floor.
Perhaps it’s competitive environment, but, strangely, the woman next to the fainting intern did nothing to prevent her fall.
White House press secretary Josh Earnest, who was speaking at the time, called for water.
“Oh goodness,” he said, peering over the lectern, “Are you okay?”.
“Can we get some water? Why don’t we wrap it up and we’ll bring some water out here.”
Once revived, the woman’s pallor was immediately replaced with blushing cheeks as she waved her hands apologetically.
