Democratic socialist Bernie Sanders was giving a speech at a press conference on Wednesday when all of the sudden he heard a loud crash behind him. A man standing off to the side of the stage had passed out and hit the ground hard like a falling redwood tree.

Sanders' response was summed up perfectly by 2014's Libertarian candidate for Governor of Florida, Adrian Wyllie, who described the moment on Facebook. "Bernie Sanders was giving a press conference in New Hampshire yesterday, when a man fainted behind him on stage. Bernie shouted, 'Oh my God!' and immediately rushed to the man's side. He then stood over the man scratching his head," wrote Wyllie. "Bernie's reaction to the incident epitomizes his policies: Caring, compassionate, and completely useless in actually helping people."

One Redditor pointed out that fainting seems to occur when the leading Dems speak, writing, "I'm not much of a conspiracy theorist but the Bernie incident reminds me of these:"

"Obama catches fainting lady" while pushing Obamacare...

"Hillary (seemingly annoyed) helps fainting dude in the crowd" back in her '08 White House run...
