90-Year-Old Nancy Reagan

Takes a BIG Spill

Former First Lady Nancy Reagan took a nasty fall last night at an event in California -- but thankfully, a nearby Senator caught her mid-fall ... INCHES before the 90-year-old would have slammed to the ground.

Nancy was being escorted to her seat at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley, CA  when she took the plunge, but the man escorting her -- Senator Marco Rubio (R-Florida) -- caught her just in time.

A spokeswoman for the library claims Nancy was NOT injured.

I never cared for her but don't wish her ill. For those who have no clue, Ronald Reagan was re-elected for a 2nd term by 80% of the voters who voted. That should tell you how great a man he was.

NEough of the partisian BS from both sides. Enough of the favoritismsaintly image from some of you too. Facts, First Lady Nancy Reagan was out and about in Bev Hills a few years ago and fell. She did again. Who are her doctors? She needs a 3-pronged cane with her for support at all times. NEXT, Where is Secret Service. One agents needs to hold her arm, well lettng his/her arm be a support for FL Nancy Reagan. The other Secret Service Agent(s) can look out for the looney crazy people. She should not be walking at no time alone with these supports. She is frail and 90. This is a Dem/GOP issue. It is not saying you like her or don't. She should have suports to help her. If this were Barbara Bush, Laura Bush, Hillary Clinton or Michelle Obama, I would EXPECT,DEMAND the same for our former FL of TUSA. Former, still we address former Fl and PofTUSA as Fl and Pres___.

Wow - glad she's okay but that Senator escorting her had quite a scare.I hear the last man she terrified by simply walking into a room was Don Regan!
