President Obama told reporters Wednesday he not only shook hands with doctors and nurses in care of Ebola patients at Emory University, but kissed the nurses as well.
The President said Wednesday:
“I shook hands with, hugged and kissed not the doctors, but a couple of the nurses at Emory, because of the valiant work that they did in treating one of the patients. They followed the protocols, they knew what they were doing, and I felt perfectly safe doing so.”
The President kissed the nurses at Emory University in Atlanta, where the second Ebola patient, Amber Vinson, is currently being treated. President Obama has cancelled a scheduled campaign trip to Connecticut to focus on the Ebola crisis.
Media personality Glenn Beck posted to his Facebook Page Thursday that an audience member was kept outside of his studio in Dallas for the taping of his television program because he was a healthcare worker who provided care for Thomas Eric Duncan.
“This is how close Ebola hits home. We just finished our Ebola show and I walked off the soundstage. I asked about the audience etc.
“I was then informed that just before the audience was loaded in, an audience member was kept outside the building due to security.
“It was a nurse who worked with the sick nurses and in the room with the victim who just died from Ebola. One of the team members. Really?”
