Children Gather For Kid's Inaugural Concert

Last night Michelle Obama was attending a  Democratic Party fundraiser in a private Kalorama home in Northwest Washington, DC when Ellen Sturtz, 56, a lesbian activist, took it upon herself to interrupt Mrs. Obama during a speech.

From the Washington Post:

Obama showed her displeasure – pausing to confront Sturtz eye to eye, according to witnesses.

“One of the things that I don’t do well is this,” she said to applause from most of the guests, according to a White House transcript. “Do you understand?”

A pool report from a reporter in the room said Obama “left the lectern and moved over to the protester.” The pool report quoted Obama as saying: “Listen to me or you can take the mic, but I’m leaving. You all decide. You have one choice.”

Obama’s suggestion that she would leave was not included in the official White House transcript.

The audience responded by asking Obama to remain, according to the pool report, which quoted a woman nearby telling Sturtz, “You need to go.”

Sturtz was escorted out of the room. She said in an interview later she was stunned by Obama’s response.
Sorry Sturtz, you just got served.
Apparently Sturtz got her feelings hurt, especially since she paid $500 to attend the fundraiser.
“She came right down in my face,” Sturtz said. “I was taken aback.”
I’m sure Sturtz will think twice before she interrupts another speech. But I’ll sit back and wait for the backlash Michelle Obama is going to receive in the upcoming days from this event. It’s not going to be pretty.
