President Obama Calmly Shuts Down Rowdy Heckler

Subscribe to TheFW on

The leader of the free world can handle it when someone tries to steal his thunder.

While speaking at an LGBT event at the White House on Wednesday, Obama was interrupted by a heckler who the Washington Post reports was an “undocumented transgender women protesting the United States’ immigration policies.”

Obama remained cool as a cucumber as he reminded the heckler “You’re in my house” and told her that her behavior was “not respectful,” while the crowd cheered him on.

He then said, “Shame on you. You shouldn’t be doing this.” Then, the crowd erupted in an “Obama” chant.

After the president ordered the heckler be removed, he kept  the crowd on his side by announcing, “I am just fine with a few hecklers, but not when I’m up in the house.”
