Reporter Gets Sick During Obama’s Final Press Conference

Obama Gets Testy

During President Obama’s final press conference before he leaves office, a member of the press corps got sick and needed to be treated by a doctor.

“I’m sorry, what’s going on? Somebody’s not feeling good? All right. Why don’t we have — we got — we can get our doctors back there to help out. Somebody want to go to my doctor’s office and just have them,” Obama said to the reporters.

Obama tried to resume answering the question, but another member of the media stated that they need the doctor to come in.

“Can we get a doctor in here? Can that be arranged?” one reporter asked.

The whole incident lasted about two minutes. It’s unclear what happened to the reporter.
