A White House household worker suffered an on-the-job injury Tuesday and may have lost some fingers.

"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

WH:
“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.

EMS:
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


Does the WH ever tell the truth about anything? (rhetorical question only)

Somebody on the white house staff has enough integrity to at least go to multiple fingers before acquiescing. I’d have lost that bet.

It’s the new Obamacare medical coding...your insurance will divvy out accordingly.

I guess that all depends on whose ox is being gored.

If they had an abundance of caution in the first place, those fingers would still be where they are supposed to be.

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 more to be known about the incident???

A White House Staffer May Have His Fingers Amputated Because…?

Is President Obama going around the White House residence smashing staffers’ fingers because his sheets didn’t 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 it’s terrible either way!)

But here’s 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?

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.

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?

chopping off of fingers or a hand is the typical punishment for stealing

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"?
