President Obama shushes a heckler at a White House reception for LGBT Pride Month, Wednesday, when a woman started shouting about Obama’s immigration policies.
“Hold on a sec,” said Obama. “OK. You know what. Nah, nah, nah, nah, nah, nah. No, no, no, no. Hey, listen. You are in my house.”
As the rest of the audience cheered, Obama cut up the heckler. “You know know what? It’s not respectful when you get invited,” he said. “You are not going to get a good response from me by interrupting me like this. Shame on you, you shouldn’t be doing this.”
As the heckler was escorted out, Obama explained his no-heckling-in-the-White-House policy.
“As a general rule, I am just fine with a few hecklers but not when I am up in the house,” he said. “If you are eating the hors d’oeuvres, know what I’m sayin’? And drinking the booze?”
Later, another woman shouted, “The transsexuals love you!”
“That’s the kind of heckling I can always accept,” Obama said.
