A pregnant woman in labor was not allowed to cross the street to go to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles for 30 minutes because Obama’s motorcade was expected to drive through.

The woman sat on a bus bench until Obama’s motorcade drove through, according the Los Angeles Times.

And, of course, people took over social media with #ObamaBabyWatch and took pictures of the poor woman.

Even though she wasn’t allowed to cross the street, hospital workers were allowed to cross the street to help her in case she gave birth on the bus bench, because logic.
