Barack Obama might not have seen the video of Hillary Clinton going limp at Sunday’s 9/11 memorial service, says Press Secretary Josh Earnest.


During Monday’s White House press briefing, Earnest explained that he had not discussed the incident with the current commander in chief.

A reporter had just asked Earnest if President Obama was “alarmed” by the news of Clinton’s Sunday, pneumonia-induced collapse.

“I don’t know whether or not he saw the video,” Earnest responded.

“He’s a pretty heavy consumer of media,” the reporter pressed Earnest a second time. “I think it would be pretty shocking if he hadn’t at least seen or heard of it.”

Earnest amended his statement the second time around.

“I certainkly would not be surprised if [President Obama] did,” he explained. “But I didn’t talk to him about it.”
