Toddler delays Obama speech
The United States President Barack Obama was about to address the nation on Iraq recently when the briefing was delayed because of a security breach on the North Lawn of the White House. A toddler was the reason for the delay, making the US President, the press corps and the nation to wait, till he was ‘hauled’ up.
The little boy managed to squeeze himself between the bars of the White House fence, just before the briefing was expected to start. It forced a temporary lockdown. It didn’t take long to resolve the matter and he’s now back with his parents.
“We were going to wait until he learned to talk to question him, but in lieu of that he got a timeout and was sent on way with parents,” according to Edwin Donovan, spokesman for the United States Secret Service. As of now the toddler’s parents are talking about he managed to escape their eye and squeezed through the fence.
