Michelle Obama to Heckler: 'We Love You'

By    |   Thursday, 30 Oct 2014 10:23 PM

A heckler interrupted Michelle Obama several times during a speech Thursday, to which the first lady replied, "We love you, babe."

Obama was speaking at a high school in New Haven, Conn. in support of Gov. Dannel Malloy, who is running for reelection.

According to a Washington Post report, a heckler who said she was a "dreamer" — immigrants brought to the United States as children and who hope to become legal American citizens — shouted for Obama to support legislation that would help people in her shoes.

The Post detailed what was said from there:

"We love you, babe. We really do," Obama said.

The first lady kept talking as the crowd drowned out the heckler's voice.

"We have so many issues," Obama said. "I hear you sweetie. I will wait and let you finish. I’m going to wait and let you finish, babe. I hear every word you're saying."

The crowd then began to chant "four more years!" in support of Malloy, who first became governor in 2011.

The protester then quieted down and Obama said, "We're here because we know things are starting to get better because of your president and because of leaders like Governor Malloy."

Later in the speech, another person in the crowd shouted at Obama. She joked about the situation on the stage, inviting the speakers to "come up here."

It was a far cry from how Obama handled a situation last year, when a gay-rights activist yelled at her during a speech at a private home in Washington.

"One of the things I don't do well is this," Obama said.

The first lady then walked right up to the woman and continued the conversation.

"[You can] listen to me or you can take the mic, but I'm leaving," Obama told the woman. "You all decide. You have one choice."

Obama remained at the home, which was hosting a Democratic party fundraiser, and the other woman was asked to leave.
