During a LGBTQ Pride speech in the East Wing on Wednesday, President Obama was interrupted by a trans activist. Jennicet Gutiérrez, who was brought as a plus one of an invited guest, began to shout down the president because he felt entitled enough to interrupt and air his issues in a completely inappropriate manner.
