white house intern faints edit

Josh Earnest hasn’t been White House Press Secretary for even a full week and he’s already putting people to sleep!

During his press briefing yesterday, a Communications intern suddenly fainted! And the whole thing was caught on camera LIVE on C-SPAN!

The unidentified girl dropped to the ground just as the meeting was coming to a close. Josh and reporter Eric Schultz reportedly rushed over to her with water.

Sources say this was actually the young intern’s FIRST DAY on the job!

Hey, we get it. Working in the White House must be a real mind melt!

Gosh, imagine if she ever meets President Obama

She’ll probably be so nervous, it’ll end up being hurl to the chief!

Watch the conscious-losing clip (below)!

White House Attempts To Stop Judge From Issuing An Injunction To Ban DADT!

So disappointing - and INFURIATING!

Earlier this month, following a non-jury trial that lasted three weeks, US District Court Judge Virginia Phillips ruled that Don't Ask, Don't Tell was indeed unconstitutional. She could possibly be issuing an injunction today that would ban the policy - but the White House is now attempting to STOP it!

WTF?

The White House apparently feels that the aforementioned injunction challenges Congress, and Press Secretary Robert Gibbs explains in a statement:

"This filing in no way diminishes the president's firm commitment to achieve a legislative repeal of DADT – indeed, it clearly shows why Congress must act to end this misguided policy."

Phillips' injunction stems from a lawsuit filed by the Log Cabin Republicans, a gay rights organization hoping for a nationwide ban, and are obviously very disappointed with the White House's current stance.

Their attorney, Dan Woods, says:

"It's sad and disappointing that the administration would file such a document days after it urged Congress to repeal 'don't ask, don't tell."

Agreed! We have the opportunity to BAN this foolish policy for once and all, right now, and now they're trying to throw it back into the shark tank for more debate?!

Unbelievable!

This is truly a sad day for the Obama administration. They should all be absolutely ashamed of themselves, after the tireless efforts so many have made to get the same HUMAN RIGHTS as everyone else.

Thoughts??
