It's ridiculous that a presidential candidate could say something like this.

The prez proved his patience and empathy yesterday when he was heckled, not once, but TWICE by vocal Code Pink co-founder Medea Benjamin during a speech at the National Defense University in Washington D.C.
It's pretty clear that Obama and Medea have differing opinions about the closure of Guantanamo Bay and his use of drone strikes! LOLz!!!
But while he could've very well dismissed the activist's screams, Obama insisted that her opinions are important even if they disagree.
The world leader even cracked a joke about her verbal outburst to cut the tension!
Ch-ch-check the uncomfortable, surprising moments (above)!!!
