• Obama To Illegal LGBT Heckler: ‘No, No, No…You’re In My House!’

    President Obama had just begun his remarks in the White House Wednesday celebrating civil rights gains for LGBT Americans when he was interrupted by a rare heckler.

    Obama said he was used to hecklers stopping him during speeches — but he draws the line when the audience interrupts him “in his own house.”

    Obama wasn’t hearing it.

    “Shame on you,” he told his heckler, who was protesting deportations under the Obama administration.

    “Listen you’re in my house … it’s not respectful,” Obama responded.

    The interruption persisted, however, and Obama asked for the heckler to be removed from the East Room.

    ” As a general rule I am just fine with a few hecklers, but not when I’m up here in the house,” he said, smiling broadly.  “You know what I mean?”

    “I do,” replied Vice President Biden, who patted Obama on the back and burst out in laughter.

    The heckler was an undocumented transgender women protesting the United States’ immigration policies, according to a press release that was blasted to the media explaining her outburst as she was being escorted out of the room.

    The president continued with his speech before an overwhelmingly friendly crowd.

    “We love you!” someone screamed.

    “I love you back,” Obama replied.

    Obama than touted his administration’s work on behalf of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Americans, which includes ending the policy that prohibited gays from openly serving in the military, lifting the HIV entry ban and passing a hate crimes bill aimed at protecting LGBT Americans.
