American first lady Michelle Obama threatened to leave a nighttime fundraiser unless a protester quit interrupting her speech.

Mrs Obama was speaking Tuesday evening at a Democratic National Committee fundraiser in Washington.

According to a pool report from a reporter who attended the event, an audience member started shouting in support of an executive order on gay rights halfway through Mrs Obama’s remarks.

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.”

The crowd started shouting for her to stay. The protester was then escorted out of the event.
