New Citizen Stumbles Over Pledge of Allegiance as Obama Consoles

The president comforted a woman who misspoke at a naturalization ceremony at the White House.

Today, in honor of the nation's Independence Day, President Obama delivered remarks at a Naturalization Ceremony for active duty military personnel and civilians. Towards the end of the ceremony, one of America's newest citizens had a little trouble reciting the Pledge of Allegiance. After a sigh of relief from the young lady and chuckles from the crowd, the president can be heard saying "It's ok," and "I get nervous too," while hugging her.
