Gutiérrez, reportedly an undocumented transgender woman, can be heard yelling in the background, at one point calling for “No more deportations!”

When Gutiérrez refused to be quiet, the president asked security to remove her and then continued to address the crowd.

“So as a general rule,” the president said to the crowd, “I am just fine with a few hecklers, but not when I’m up in the house. You know what I mean? You know, my attitude is, if you’re eating the hors d’oeuvres - you know what I’m saying?”

Vice-President Joe Biden answered, “I do.”

And the president continued: “Okay. And drinking the booze. I know that’s right.”
