It seems as if the gay fringe of the liberal Democrat Party is not too happy with President Obama and his administration. During a fundraising speech for the Democratic National Committee, First Lady Michelle Obama was interrupted by organizers of the gay leftist organization, GetEqual, who demanded that President Obama make good on a 2008 Presidential campaign promise.

Here is what the pool reporter at the event wrote groups regarding the encounter between the activists and Mrs. Obama.
The organizers were advocating for action from the Obama Administration to sign a long-promised Executive Order that would bar any company that contracts with the federal government from discriminating on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity.

To Michelle Obama’s credit, she handled the situation pretty well. According to the reporter, Mrs. Obama moved toward the protester and said the person would either, quote, “listen to me or you can take the mic, but I’m leaving.”
Here is what protester Ellen Sturtz stated-
“I had planned to speak tonight with DNC officials but, as the First Lady was talking about our children’s future and ensuring that they have everything they need to live happy and productive lives, I simply couldn’t stay silent any longer,” Sturtz said late Tuesday.
After the encounter, the protester was sent packing.Should Americans expect to see more Democratic Party infighting and discontent with the President? Yes.
