    This is an extremely interesting topic because not only is this story making headlines globally, it’s also one of those instances you don’t expect something weird to happen, especially when the president is giving a speech. I’ve read about what happened to Karmel Allison and from news reports; people have said that she just felt very faint and light-headed. Karmel also spoke with several media outlets about what happened on the day she almost fainted during the president’s speech. She said that she’s 20 weeks pregnant and that she has diabetes so she felt very faint, plus the sun was in her face which added more pressure towards her body, which caused her to feel faint. I’m so happy that everyone, including the president immediately rushed to her aid and that the White House took special care of her and that she’s now ok and healthy.
