Watch: Obama Gets Heckled By Protester Says, “Right Now, I’m Talking You’ll Have…”

Obama is particularly trying to campaign for the party ahead of mid-term elections and is headlining rallies in five states

Washington: Ahead of the mid-term elections, former US President Barack Obama was heckled by a protestor during his Michigan rally. The rally was held on Saturday. He was campaigning for Democratic Governor Gretchen Whitmer. Even six years after he left the White House, he is still the most famous person in the Democratic Party.

Fox News reported that a protestor,  shouted out during a pause in the former president’s speech, however, his statement could not be understood due to the commotion during the rally. Obama responding to the protestor said, “Sir, this is what I’m saying,” Obama said to the heckler, exasperated. “We’ve got a process that we set up in our democracy. Right now, I’m talking. You’ll have a chance to talk sometime later. You wouldn’t do that in a workplace.”

The protestor’s assertion was met with rapid response from the crowd.

Obama continues to be a favorite of Democrats even six years after leaving the White House and his role as US President because of the political magic he creates when interacting with the public.

This time, he is particularly trying to campaign for the party ahead of mid-term elections and is headlining rallies in five states.

Obama kicked off the rally in the state of Georgia, where Democratic Sen. Raphael Warnock, is running for a full six-year term in the Senate. He will further head to the purple state of Nevada on Tuesday, and to the crucial northeastern battleground of Pennsylvania on November 5, Fox News reported.

Speaking at a rally in Georgia on Friday he said that democracy is at stake in next month’s midterm elections in the United States. While addressing the rally he said that everyone has to get out and vote to prevent election conspiracy theorists from getting their hands on the levers of power.

“It’s not enough to elect Democrats at the top of the ticket,” said Obama. “We need to elect good people up and down the ballot. Across the country, some of the folks who tried to undermine our democracy are running for offices that will oversee the next election. And if they win, there’s no telling what might happen,” he said.
