Reporter dares ask Obama question at a “press conference” closed to questions, liberals go batshit. ”Would a white president have been heckled this way?”

We’ve never had a white president been told by the opposing party [sic] to shut up in the middle of a major address to the Congress. We’ve never had a president like this [like what?] heckled so disrespectfully. We’ve never had this otherness afforded to any other president [ WTF? and I think the right wing has some explaining to do because to me it's patently obvious," he said.
