President Obama to Heckler: “You’re in My House”
In a story that must have conservatives so annoyed they don’t know what to do with themselves, President Obama had a transgender illegal immigrant heckler removed from an LGBT event at the White House, saying he wasn’t going to put up with that when he’s “up in the House.”
The President was speaking at a White House event honoring LGBT Pride Month when activist Jennicent Gutierrez started shouting at him from the crowd. Apparently she is the founder of a group that feels transgendered people are being excluded from the immigration debate.
Obama responded “Listen, you’re in my house, it’s not respectful,” and eventually had Gutierrez removed from the East Room.
“As a general rule, I am just fine with a few hecklers — but not when I’m up in the house,” he said. “My attitude is, if you’re eating the hors d’eouvres… you know what I’m saying? And drinking the booze!”
Expect the internet to be full of “Obama up in da house” jokes, liberals fighting each other about intersectionality and Republicans yelling about how the White House is The People’s House and How Dare You, Sir.
