Watch: Obama Puts Heckler in Their Place During LGBT Event

Obama is no stranger to being heckled. In fact, some say he's the most heckled president in American history. In this instance, however, he had a very cracking comeback highlighting just how very rude it is when you invite people into your home, and "they're eating the hors d'oeuvres and drinking the booze" before they start heckling

According to CNN, the heckler was: "an undocumented immigrant named Jennicet GutiƩrrez, who is transgender. According to a press release, GutiƩrrez was a founding member of FAMILIA TQLM, established to advocate for LGBTQ immigrants who the group says are often excluded in the immigration debate."

After Obama asked for the heckler to be removed, he said: "As a general rule I am just fine with a few hecklers. But not when I'm up here in the house". After the event, he added that if "guests" are "eating the hors d'oeuvres and drinking the booze," they're expected to respectfully listen to proceedings.
