An umbrella closed on President Obama’s head as he walked in rainy Tennessee, July 1, 2015. (ABC News)(MADISON, Tenn.) — Everyone’s had an umbrella close on their head from time to time. But it’s not every day you see it happen to the president of the United States.
As he stepped out of his limo into rainy Nashville weather Wednesday afternoon, President Barack Obama was handed an umbrella. But seconds later as the president was walking, the umbrella closed on his head.
The mishap occurred when the president picked up Kelly Bryant, a breast cancer survivor who wrote to the president about her experience with the Affordable Care Act.
Bryant accompanied the president to a speech in Madison, Tennessee where he is talking about the success of his signature healthcare plan.
While the president didn’t discuss his umbrella snafu, he did note that Bryant had the “distinction of possibly being the first person ever to be picked up at her house by a presidential motorcade.”
“It was so close to the school we said well we might as well swing by and get her,” he said.
