A White House intern fainted during Tuesday's White House briefing, prompting a quick end to the briefing and calls for water to be brought to the young woman.

White House spokesman Josh Earnest was being asked a question by a reporter, when the young intern can be seen fainting in the background.

"Oh goodness. You OK?" Earnest asks. After a pause of a few seconds, Earnest took charge and ended the briefing.

"Can we get some water? Why don't we wrap it up and we'll bring some water out here," he said.

Josh Earnest's first full week on the job has been interesting so far. At the end of his Monday briefing, several reporters complained he was refusing to answer their questions.
