After President Barack Obama’s Administration announced that the United States would stop deporting illegal aliens who were brought to the U.S. as children, the President made a speech. One reporter didn’t like the speech.
The reporter asked Obama why he favored “foreigners over Americans.”
Obama responded: “The next time I’d prefer you let me finish my statements before you ask that question! This is the right thing to do for the American people.” When interrupted again, Obama declared, “I didn’t ask for an argument; I’m answering your question.”
Obama defended the plan by saying that the children have already made significant contributions to our society.
Neil Munro, the White House correspondent for The Daily Caller, said:
I always go to the White House prepared with questions for our president. I timed the question believing the president was closing his remarks, because naturally I have no intention of interrupting the President of the United States. I know he rarely takes questions before walking away from the podium. When I asked the question as he finished his speech, he turned his back on the many reporters, and walked away while I and at least one other reporter asked questions.
