UPDATE (6:00 p.m. ET): CNN obtained a video of the encounter between Michelle Obama and the lesbian heckler.
Though the video is shaky, it’s clear enough to tell that the first lady was incredibly annoyed with the heckler:
First Lady Michelle Obama during a speaking event on Tuesday was heckled by an LGBT activist.
The heckler, according to the pool report, was demanding that President Obama issue “an executive order banning federal contractors from discriminating against LGBT employees,” TheBlaze’s Jason Howerton reports.
The first lady was not impressed.
“One of the things I don’t do well is this,” she said, adding that the heckler could “listen to me or you can take the mic, but I’m leaving. You all decide. You have one choice.”
Here’s the audio of their back-and-forth:
The heckler was quickly escorted out of the fundraiser while reportedly shouting the she was “a lesbian looking for federal equality before I die.”
Michelle Obama continued her address:
So let me make the point that I was making before,” continued FLOTUS. “We are here for our kids. So we must recapture that passion. That same urgency and energy that we felt back in 2008, 2012. Understand this — this is what I want you all to understand. This is not about us. No one back here. It’s not about you or you or your issue or your thing. This is about our children.
