Barack Obama Gets Heckled For His Support Of Controversial Candidate

Former President Barack Obama became a bit rattled at a rally where a reporter heckled him about discrimination in the Democrat Party.

Drew Hernandez, Turning Point USA investigative reporter interrupted Obama's speech to ask about Arizona gubernatorial candidate Katie Hobbs and why she "discriminates against black people."

"Obama was in Phoenix Wednesday to stump for Hobbs in her race against Republican Kari Lake and for Sen. Mark Kelly (D-AZ), who is neck and neck with GOP challenger Blake Masters. The former president was arguing that the economy is 'very good for folks at the very top, but not always so good for ordinary people' when Hernandez interjected," reported Breitbart.

Obama Heckled At Rally

"Like you, Obama!" Hernandez said. "Why do you support Katie Hobbs? Katie Hobbs discriminates against black people. Katie Hobbs discriminates [inaudible]."

"You know, you have to be polite and civil when people are talking – when other people are talking – and then you get a chance to talk," responded Obama. "Set up your own rally. A lot of people worked hard for this. C’mon, man."

"A man in a blue shirt seized Hernandez, who hosts the TPUSA show Frontlines, and began to escort him out of the building," reported Breitbart. "Suddenly, two younger men in blue shirts rushed towards him and began screaming inaudibly in close proximity to his face. Through it all, Hernandez continued to shout that 'Katie Hobbs discriminates against black people!'"
