Obama Shuts Down White House Heckler: “You’re in My House”


While celebrating an event for LGBT Pride Month at the White House on Wednesday, President Obama was interrupted by a woman shouting demands that he end the deportation of LGBT immigrants. Obama was not into it:

“Listen, you’re in my house,” the president told her, visibly irritated by the disruption. “You’re not gonna get a good response from me by interrupting me like this. I’m sorry. No, no, no, no, no. Shame on you. You shouldn’t be doing this.”

Cheering Obama’s response, the crowd was heard booing her calls and attempting to shush her.

The woman, transgender activist Jennicet Gutiérrez, was promptly escorted out.

“I’m just very disappointed with the way it was handled,” Gutiérrez later told the Advocate. “I’m part of the LGBT community, and they didn’t back me, instead they were booing, which to me was like a slap in the face to all these people in detention centers.”
