Obama Confronts Heckler Over Iran: 'Nobody Has Announced a War, Young Lady

"You’re jumping the gun a little bit there."

At a fundraiser in New York City on Thursday, a heckler interrupted the president's speech to defend any action against Iran. That prompted the president to stop, wage his finger, and tell the protester, "Nobody has announced a wary, young lady."

The woman reportedly shouted, “Use your leadership! No war on Iran!”

Obama responded: "No one’s announced a war, young lady. ... You’re jumping the gun a little bit there."

The comments originally sparked a little more controversy after the pool reporter noted the president said "Nobody has announced a war yet," which some said signaled imminent action. The pool reporter eventually corrected the record and deleted "yet."

The event, at ABC Carpet & Home, cost attendees $1,000 per person.

By the way, according to the Daily Beast, "The fundraiser, his 100th of the reelection campaign, was one of a slew of events held Thursday night in the heart of Manhattan. At the swankiest of affairs, guests paid $35,8000 a plate at ABC Kitchen—a nearby popular dining spot."
