While the White House is currently under fire for banning Jim Acosta from the White House, former President Obama once removed a reporter from the White House…for SHOUTING!
What makes this even crazier is that this was during the celebration of LGBT Pride Month. The reporter was dragged from the room while the press cheered that she was being removed.
It just so happens the person removed was Jennicet Gutiérrez, who is transgender and stated she was in the country illegally. Just after Obama started speaking Gutiérrez said, “President Obama, release all L.G.B.T.Q. immigrants from detention and stop all deportations!”
Gutiérrez was protesting the conditions of the detention centers for immigrants.
President Obama showed no patience at all when he told her “You’re in my house” and had her removed.
“Shame on you, you shouldn’t be doing this,” he said, according to video of the incident Reuters posted to YouTube. “Can we escort this person out? You can either stay and be quiet or we’ll have to take you out.”
Obama was greeted with cheers when he kicked someone out of the White House. Can you imagine if Trump kicked a transgender from the White House? The outrage would be historical.
