The crowd that attends the annual White House LGBT PRIDE MOTH RECEPTION is generally a welcoming one!!!
However, there was this one rowdy heckler.
TIME reports before Obama could get into his speech, he was interrupted by an attendee.
The HECKLER screamed;
“No more deportations.”The President said he’s generally “just fine” with a few hecklers, but that when you’re in his home, you should play by his rules.
President BARACK OBAMA said;
“Shame on you.. You shouldn't be doing this.”President OBAMA then requested for the person be to be escorted from the event.
As the heckler continued, The POTUS later joked;
“You know, my attitude is if you’re eating the hors d’oeuvres, you know what I’m saying…”Vice President JOE BIDEN quickly said;
“I do.”POTUS added, “And drinking the booze…”
After the President acknowledged hardships faced by the LGBTQ community, an audience member shouted;
“The transsexuals love you.”
To that, POTUS #44he replied;
“Well, that’s the kind of heckling I can always accept.”Check for it at C-SPAN.
