(NEW YORK POST) A pregnant woman in labor was forbidden from crossing the street — to get to a hospital — in LA because President Obama’s motorcade was in the area on Wednesday, witnesses said.

The woman was barred from walking to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center for 30 minutes, according to The Blaze website, which first reported the story.

“This woman is in labor but can’t get to Cedars cuz of Obama!!!” witness Carrie Clifford tweeted, along with a picture of the woman.
