Things took a weird turn for Dr. Rollan Roberts II when his wife fainted during his speech. He is now getting trolled for his response.
Something strange happened on January 20 when the Republican and businessman Dr. Rollan Roberts II was making an announcement at the West Virginia State Capitol. He was about to say that he has decided to run for US Presidential elections that will be held in 2024.
But then suddenly his five-month pregnant wife Rebecca Lea Roberts started feeling a bit dizzy and fainted. However, this is not the strange thing that happened, because it is quite understandable that she might not be feeling well.
The issue is the time it took for Roberts to come for his wife’s rescue. In the video, one can see that the wife was on the ground and 3-4 people from nearby had rushed to see what had happened. It was only then that the husband stepped away from behind the podium to see what had happened to his wife.
Despite what people are saying about the businessman on Twitter, the wife was seen later sitting on a chair while her husband continued his speech.
Response to Dr. Rollen Roberts II’s wife fainting
There have been different kinds of responses to this incident. While some are pointing out the fact that Roberts “barely reacted”, others are saying that his wife fainting is a sign that he should not be running for President.
His reaction does not necessarily mean that he does not care for his wife. It is plausible that he was shocked and nervous. Either way, he is still running for President, so the incident should not be taken as a sign that he will be an unsuitable candidate for the presidency.
