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.
