Obama Heckled During Campaign Rally

1952: “Ivy Mike”, the first thermonuclear weapon to utilize the H-bomb design of Edward Teller and Stanislaw Ulam, is detonated in the Marshall Islands, Pacific Ocean.

Former President Barack Obama was interrupted by a heckler at a Democratic campaign rally in Michigan, while he was discussing the recent assault on Paul Pelosi.

Obama was in Michigan to campaign for Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D) and other Democratic candidates ahead of the midterm elections. He was speaking about the attack on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s husband, saying that violent political rhetoric was to blame.

“If our rhetoric about each other gets that mean, when we don’t just disagree with people but we start demonizing, making wild, crazy allegations about them, that creates a dangerous climate,” Obama said.

“If elected officials don’t do more to explicitly reject that kind of rhetoric, if they tacitly support it or encourage their supporters to stand up outside voting places armed with guns and dressed in tactical gear, more people can get hurt,” he added.

“We got politicians who work to stir up division to try to make us angry and afraid of one another for their own advantage, and all of it gets amped up, hyped up 24/7 by social media,” Obama said. “And sometimes it can turned dangerous.”

A protester could be heard saying “Mr. President,” followed by inaudible comments.

“Sir, this is what I mean,” Obama responded.

“Sir, we’ve got a — there is a process that we set up in our democracy. Right now, I’m talking, you’ll have a chance to talk sometime soon,” he continued. “We don’t have to interrupt each other. We don’t have to shout each other down.”

The former president was interrupted roughly seven minutes later by an additional heckler, according to the New York Post.

Obama asked: “Do we have another person yelling at me? Is that what you’re doing?”
