Looks like America’s Boyfriend prefers his LGB with a little less T.

Bridget Johnson, PJ Tatler:

President Obama was interrupted by a heckler during an LGBT Pride Month event in the East Room this evening, eventually ordering the guest removed…

The interrupter kept calling out “President Obama,” and the president replied, “No, no, no, no. No, no. No. Shame on you. You shouldn’t be doing this…”

The heckler was an illegal immigrant transgender activist, Jennicet Gutierrez, who shouted, “President Obama, release all LGBTQ immigrants from detention and stop all deportations.” The group GetEQUAL said Gutierrez “could not celebrate while some 75 transgender detainees were still being exposed to assault and abuse in ICE custody at this very moment.”

Gutierrez is not only a transgendered individual but an undocumented immigrant? Wow, so it’s twice as bad. I think Obama will be hearing about this one.

Shaming? Bullying? Ejecting by force?

Yes We Can.
