President Obama rudely interrupted by reporter while making policy remarks

Updated

In a stunning display of rudeness, a reporter interrupted President Obama’s speech on a new immigration policy in the White House Rose Garden this afternoon. 

Obama was visibly upset after the man, identified as Neil Munro of Daily Caller, shouted out a question in the middle of the president’s remarks, ”Why do you favor foreigners over American workers?” 

“Not while I’m speaking,” Obama said in a sharp tone. “It’s not time for questions.” 

Monro stopped talking and the president continued his speech, which was about his plan to stop deporting younger illegal immigrants who came to the U.S. as children.

Minutes later, Obama addressed the man during the speech again, saying the plan was the “right thing to do for the American people.” That’s when Munro tried to speak over the president again. 

“I’m answering your question … I didn’t ask for an argument,” Obama said.

This is just the latest incident in a string of disrespectful beahvior towards our commander-in-chief, from Joe Wilson’s “You lie!” shout at Obama during an address to Congress in 2009 to Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer’s wagging finger in Obama’s face in January of this year.  

Guest host Michael Eric Dyson will have more on that tonight on The Ed Show at 8pET on msnbc!
