Before the speech even started. A man starts screaming 'Jesus Christ is God.' He then calls Obama the 'anti-Christ.' This guy is in the front row, directly in front of Obama. This is at the House of Blues fundraiser in LA
Speaking at a campaign fundraiser at the House of Blues in L.A. tonight, President Obama was interrupted by a heckler shouting “Jesus Christ is God!” repeatedly as he was physically removed from the event.
As the young man shouted from the front row that the president was an antichrist, Obama’s loyal supporters drowned out the heckler’s rant with boos and chants of “Four more years! Four more years!”
While Obama initially looked befuddled – the heckler interrupted him before he even finished delivering his thank-yous at the top of his remarks – the president ultimately laughed it off. “First of all, I agree that Jesus Christ is the lord. I believe in that,” Obama jokingly responded to the tirade.

“Thank you for that,” the president responded.
That man was allowed to remain in the event
