Achoo! In the Briefing Room

No wonder there’s so many speculated cases of swine flu among the White House press corps…

Today during press secretary Robert Gibbs‘ daily briefing, a reporter sneezed– but not into her elbow, as the press corps had previously been advised by HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius to do so.

“You’re screwed Ann, just FYI,” Gibbs joked with ABC radio’s Ann Compton, who sits near the sneezer.

C-SPAN has the video here (scroll to about 21 mins in).
