Michelle Obama don’t take no mess…….
If we learned one thing about the First Lady…..its don’t disrespect her!!! In mid speech, Michelle Obama had to stop and confront a gay-rights protester who heckled the crap out of her during a Democratic fundraiser in Washington yesterday.
Obama was only half way into her planned 20-minute speech at a lesbian couple’s home when a woman standing at the front of the small crowd interrupted, demanding that President Barack Obama sign an executive order on gay rights. Michelle looked up and offered to give the heckler the microphone and leave, but the crowd wasn’t having it….they cheered for the First lady to stay!!
“One of the things I don’t do well is this,” the first lady said before walking down from the podium and getting up in the protester’s face, according to a pool reporter covering the event.
Obama told the woman that people gathered in the backyard tent could “listen to me or you can take the mic, but I’m leaving,” before telling the crowd, “You all decide. You have one choice.”
The crowd then began chanting for Obama to stay as one woman told the protester, “You need to leave.” The woman was escorted out, shouting that she was a “lesbian looking for federal equality before I die.”
Obama then returned to the podium to finish her speech, receiving a loud applause as she did.
