Does President Barack Obama have a career in stand-up comedy?!
Maybe, not — but he certainly knows how to take on a heckler.
On Wednesday, the President took on one vocal attendee while celebrating LGBT Pride Month at the White House. Apparently, while POTUS was mid-speech, a protester began shouting his name.
However, instead of just letting the secret service handle the incident, the Commander-in-Chief quickly shut down the opinionated guest.
“No, no, no, no. Listen, you’re in my house.”
FIERCE! Way to SHUT. IT. DOWN. Remind us not to cross you in the future.
The alleged heckler is said to be Jennicet Gutierrez. Nonetheless, before Miz Gutierrez was escorted out, the 53-year-old made sure to add in one last jibe.
Obama then shared:
“You’re not going to get a good response from me by interrupting me like this├óΓé¼┬ªShame on you, you shouldn’t be doing this.”
Well said, sir.
Reportedly, the attendee was a part of the Not One More Campaign which opposes the administration’s deportation policies. It’s said that she could be heard shouting things such as “stop all deportations” and “not one more” as she was removed.
Hmm, very inneresting.
Obama later quipped to the room:
“As a general rule, I am just fine with a few hecklers. But not when I am up in the house. My attitude is if you’re eating the hors d’oeuvres, you know what I’m saying? And drinking the booze? I know that’s right.”
LOVES it! BO just follows basic party etiquette.
We don’t know what we love more the President throwing some serious shade — or VEEP Joe Biden‘s expression during the throwdown.
Be sure to ch-ch-check out the whole scenario (below)!
