Obama shuts down Heckler

President Obama hosted a reception to observe the LGBT pride month in the East Room of the White House was interrupted for nearly two minutes by a heckler. Obama has had his share of hecklers in the past, but on Wednesday, 24th of June 2015, the heckler interrupted Obama's remarks by protesting the detention and deportation of gay, lesbian and transgender immigrants.

Sources said the heckler was a woman. She was heard shouting about deportations in English and Spanish.

At first Obama said ''hold on a second'', but the heckler kept interrupting the proceedings.

Finally, wagging his finger, Obama said, ''Hey listen you're in my know what?It's not respectful when you get invited to somebody. You are not going to get a good response from me by interrupting me like this. I'm sorry. I'm sorry....shame on you, you shouldn't be doing this.'' 

President Obama asked for the person to escorted out. Obama visibly angry about the interruptions, later joked with the crowd. 

''As a genral rule i am just fine with a few hcklers, but not when i'm up in the house.''

"As a general rule I am just fine with a few hecklers. But not when I'm up in the house."
