Here’s audio of the first lady Michelle Obama putting a heckler interrupting her very important speech in place!
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.”
The crowd started cheering and decided they’d rather have Michelle continue her speech, and the protestor was immediately escorted out.
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.
