Obama referred to Hill as courageous and told her how she probably saved a lot of lives as a result of her heroic efforts. Here is somebody who is not just courage, not just cool under pressure, but also had enough heart that somehow she could convince somebody that was really troubled that she cared about him, Obama said, according to CNN. I think we might have to have her maybe make a visit to the White House, Obama enthused.
Obama told CNNs Chris Cuomo during a segment of New Day that he listened to Tuffs 911 call and read about how brave she acted when faced with such a perilous situation. She was pretty cool, too, Obama said of his telephone conversation with Tuff. She was happy about it.
Tuff said the call was awesome.
