There is a medical emergency at the White House right now. Sarah Sanders informs us that a staffer has suffered a seizure and is being taken for evaluation by ambulance from the West Wing doors. Secret Service have pushed the media back from our usual position for the moment. pic.twitter.com/TBt4sZOCoN
