Michelle Obama Confronts Heckler at Fundraiser; Threatens to Leave
FLOTUS, Michelle Obama had a run-in with a heckler during a Democratic fundraiser yesterday.
According to reports, Mrs. Obama threatened to leave the fundraiser after confronting a protester who interrupted her planned speech:
“One of the things that I don’t do well is this,” she said to applause from most of the guests, according to a White House transcript. “Do you understand?”
A pool report from a reporter in the room said Obama “left the lectern and moved over to the protester.” The pool report quoted Obama as saying: “Listen to me or you can take the mic, but I’m leaving. You all decide. You have one choice.”
Obama’s suggestion that she would leave was not included in the official White House transcript.
The audience responded by asking Obama to remain, according to the pool report, which quoted a woman nearby telling Sturtz, “You need to go.”
Sturtz was escorted out of the room. She said in an interview later she was stunned by Obama’s response.
“She came right down in my face,” Sturtz said. “I was taken aback.”
