Remember all those ridiculous, staged “faintings” by overwhelmed citizens at Obama rallies?
My favorite used to be the one with the pregnant lady standing behind the president onstage. Her friend standing beside her seemed to whisper something to her, she then buckled, just as Obama inexplicably turned to look behind him, in the middle of a speech. He rushes to catch her, oh-so concerned about her well-being.
Such a gentleman.
Meanwhile, the friend who had whispered to her and was standing right there didn’t flinch, as she watched her pregnant friend crumble.
Well, apparently, fainting over Obama is still a thing.

Ok. I’m going to go out on a limb and say there was something legitimately wrong, here.
Hopefully, it’s nothing more than that overwhelming feeling of relief so many of us have, that this particular American nightmare will soon be over.
