AUDIO: Michelle Obama gets one in on Heckler..Did she go too far?


VIA (NecoleBitchie) Michelle Obama and The White House has drummed up some controversy after she was heckled during a private Democratic National Committee fundraiser in Washington. The event was held at the home of a lesbian couple and democratic loyalists paid $500 to $10,000 for a ticket to attend. About 12 minutes into Michelle Obama’s speech, as she spoke passionately about ensuring the youth have everything they need to lead happy and productive lives, a LGBT activist standing in the crowd began heckling her about an executive order on Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender rights –particular a ban on discrimination by federal contractors based on sexual orientation and gender identity.



As she was being heckled, Michelle immediately stopped talking and said, “One of the things that I don’t do well is this,” before approaching the woman and telling her, “listen to me, or you can take the mic, but I’m leaving. You all decide. You have one choice.”

Meanwhile, the reaction to the way Michelle handled the heckler has been a huge topic of discussion this morning. While some thought her response was appropriate, others felt as though it was classless.


Oops! Wrong Obama to mess with Mr./Mrs. Hecker;;;
