White House Chief Of Protocol Slips On Red Carpet At State Dinner

We're not really sure why this was SUCH a big deal, but the main story after last night's State Dinner was that White House Chief of Protocol Capricia Penavic Marshall slipped on the steps of the White House while heading down the stairs to greet the Mexican President. -

Maybe she jinxed herself when she naively warned photographers: "Don't take that picture!", which the President and Mrs.Obama quickly echoed ("Don't print that picture!" Michelle sternly added). Of course the video had already gone viral.

Still, it's better than that other video that was making the rounds after the last State Dinner....
