While President Barack Obama gave a speech about the health care sign-up problems on healthcare.gov, a woman directly behind the president began to wobble and nearly faint causing a slight interruption in the speech. Some are calling the event a set-up while others are defending it as what it appeared to be. What do you think?

The woman seen nearly fainting is Karmel Allison. She was invited to the speech because she was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes at the age of 9 and has faced constant rising costs of medical insurance and the fear of not being able to find different insurance due to her preexisting condition. With the implementation of the Affordable Care Act, Allison is finally feeling like she is equal to others when it comes to access to coverage.

As with all conspiracy theories, it depends on how you interpret decisions made. Let us know what you think by answering the polls below.

Allison sent out a tweet to the president after the speech thanking him for his actions.
