Michelle Obama Did Not Leave the Southside For This: Confronts Heckler Face to Face

First Lady Michelle Obama had to remind a heckler not to play with her last night. Get the deets on what brought the "Southside of Chicago" out of the FLOTUS



Last night, First Lady Michelle Obama was heckled during a private fundraiser at a home in Washington, but the tables quickly turned on the heckler.

Though things began smoothly, the First Lady's speech at the Democratic National Committee fundraiser quickly went left once Ellen Sturtz, heckled the First Lady about getting the President to sign an executive order banning LGBT discrimination. So Michelle had to leave her podium to go give Ms. Heckler a good read in her face.

The First Lady said before walking off, "One of the things I don’t do well is this...Do you understand?"

Then, as the audience wildly applauded her, Mrs. Obama LEFT the lectern walked right up into Ellen's face and said, "...listen to me or you can take the mic, but I'm leaving. You all decide. You have one choice."




At that point, the crowd went wild. And as many people shouted things like "You need to go", the Secret Service quickly swooped down on Ellen and escorted her out of the building!

Unfortunately, there's no video from the event (only official White House pool reports where they left out Mrs. O's words....but other media reported them). We would have loved to see the First Lady's bangs swing in the wind as she walked back to the lectern and security tossed the heckler out of the function.

Afterwards, Elle played victim and told the reporters,

"Basically, I was asked by the first lady to be quiet, and I can't be quiet any longer. ... I was surprised by how negative the crowd seemed to be. It was actually a little unsettling and disturbing,: Then Ellen got a little ball-sy and said, "She obviously thought she was going to make an example of me or something. I wasn't scared at all."

Um, but she DID make an example of you!

Southside STAND UP!
