President Obama Scolds Heckler: 'This Is My House,' 'Shame on You'
During The White House East Room reception to mark LGBT Pride Month, Jennicet Guitierrez, a transgender woman and undocumented immigrant interrupted President Obama during his remarks.
The president began to get upset and said, “Listen you're in my house, it's not respectful when you get invited by somebody, you're not going to get a good response from me by interrupting me like this.”
The president was not amused and began scolding the activist and said, “Shame on you, you should not be doing this. Can we escort this person out? Come on, you can either stay and be quiet or we'll have to take you out.”
After asking multiple times for her to be removed, the president waited until she was escorted out before he addressed the incident.
He said, “As a general rule, I am just fine with a few hecklers but not when I am up in the House! My attitude is, if you're eating the hors d’oevers and drinking the booze, that's right, I love you back.”
Jennicet released a statement after the incident that read, "As I reflect on what just happened at The White House, I am outraged at the lack of leadership that Obama demonstrated. He had no concern for the way that LGBT detainees are suffering."
Jennicet spoke to INSIDE EDITION about the incident. She said, "He didn't want to listen. He just was, 'No, no, no, no, no.' Bascially, he gave me the option to stay quiet but I guess my body just went into this moment when I just couldn't stop and I had to speak up."
