Rahm Emanuel Goes to Movies, Picks Bad Seat
White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel's attempt to be somewhat normal and go to the movies this past Saturday turned into a real drama.
As Politico's Ben Smith just posted, Rahm picked the worst seat in the house for an evening showing of "The Wrestler" at the E Street Cinema downtown.
"The guy sitting next to Rahm -- literally sharing an armrest with him
-- had a seizure of some kind," a moviegoer tells Smith. "Rahm used
some vulgarities to impress upon the movie theater staff -- who wanted
to move the guy out of the movie theater so they could restart the
film -- that they should wait until EMS got there."
Emanuel, who went to the movies with a Secret Service agent, waited for EMS to arrive. His spokeswoman, Sarah Feinberg, says the theater eventually restarted the movie, and Rahm stayed and watched.
