After a call about what was described by D.C. Fire/EMS spokesman Lon Walls as a "possible amputation of one or two fingers," a man was taken

Someone tried to grab Moochelle’s french fries?
Will Baraq be fined by OHSHA?
What Sharia law did he violate?

There was a minor injury with a member of the residence staff
lol. Since when is losing a finger or two minor? This White House is just insane. Sorry it wasn’t some splinter in a finger there White House. Goodness these folks need to vacate the White House ASAP. Prayers to the injured person.
Yakuza attack? Did they renege on an Obama oath of silence?
How is losing fingers a minor injury?
“There was a minor injury with a member of the residence staff an ambulance was called out of an abundance of caution,” an administration official said.
After a call about what was described by D.C. Fire/EMS spokesman Lon Walls as a “possible amputation of one or two fingers,” a man was taken, the man was taken to Washington Hospital Center as a “priority 1” patient, meaning that his condition was classified as life threatening
Somebody on the white house staff has enough integrity to at least go to multiple fingers before acquiescing. I’d have lost that bet.
When they are not your fingers, of course.
“How is losing fingers a minor injury?”
It’s the new Obamacare medical coding...your insurance will divvy out accordingly.
Those fingers can probably be found in the cookie jar.
Tis but a scratch!
G.W. Is closer. Wonder why they didn’t go there.
A mere flesh wound. We are the knights that say, “Ne!”.
I guess that all depends on whose ox is being gored.
I’ve had worse.
I wonder if 0bama chopped them off himself, mobster that he is? Sounds like somebody talked.
Poor person was probably shocky. Definitely life threatening.
If they had an abundance of caution in the first place, those fingers would still be where they are supposed to be.
The worker should sue the employer for unsafe working conditions.
I wonder if he lost them using a Saw Alinsky?
Or maybe he got his hand caught in a defense cut?
I was thinking more that the White House has adopted some Yakuza traditions! Obama IS from the most corrupt city in the nation.
LOSING FINGERS is a "minor injury" and an ambulance for it is "an abundance of caution"? WTF?
This press release sounds like its bragging about a Sharia punishment - and threatening whoever else might dare cross the same line.
No, Soetoro has exempted the White House from OSHA penalties -- this week.
Those were so bad they were great!
Is President Obama going around the White House residence smashing staffers fingers because his sheets didnt have proper hospital corners? The only correct answer can be yes, because will you just look at what happened today: A member of the White House household staff suffered an on-the-job injury Tuesday and may have lost some fingers.
The Washington Post originally reported the story, and was told by D.C. Fire/EMS spokesman Lon Walls that the staffer was facing the possible amputation of one or two fingers and was taken to Washington Hospital Center with injuries that were classified as life-threatening.
Possible amputation of one or two fingers injuries classified as life-threatening hmm is something not squaring up? (Of course its terrible either way!)
But heres the latest, the cover-up perhaps, from an Obama administration official: There was a minor injury with a member of the residence staff an ambulance was called out of an abundance of caution.
What the hell?
A MINOR INJURY??????
Lost ‘one or two fingers’????
What would they call a MAJOR INJURY????
A rocket attack from Tehran????
The One cost me a lot worse than two fingers!
So what’s losing a couple of fingers to this Administration? Minor injury! (long as they’re not YOUR fingers). Nothing compared to their taking an arm and a leg from everyone else, I guess.
Arm and a leg...
Life is reportedly beautiful all the time when a Democrat is in the White House.
Nothing to see here, just possibly a couple of fingers.
Will Jay Leno or any of the other late night Hussein Head Hosts touch this one tonight?
Seriously, hang that picture on your fridge and you’ll never eat again!
I need some brain bleach!!!
chopping off of fingers or a hand is the typical punishment for stealing

Obama said “off with their head!”.....and they missed!
Maybe not. Depends on what the hand was holding.
Only staff at this White House would describe this as a ‘minor accident’. And no...I’m not reading any further.
And the White House classifies this as a "minor injury"?
