WTF is with this woman standing behind Deval Patrick FANNING HERSELF while Deval discusses a BLIZZARD? It's 25 degrees outside!—

On Thursday, as Massachusetts prepared for “swift, heavy and dangerous” snow, Gov. Deval Patrick held a press briefing to issue warnings and safety advice about winter storm Nemo. But it was someone else who got most of the attention — a woman with a fan.
Standing behind Patrick, fan lady distracted viewers almost to the point of hypnosis.
Twitter users identified “fan lady” as Andrea Cabral, Secretary of the Executive Office of Public Safety and Security.
Gov. Patrick also played second fiddle to an extremely enthusiastic sign language interpreter.
