Obama barks at climate protesters: ‘You’re interrupting me’

A pro-climate change protester interrupted President Obama’s speech on manmade climate change Wednesday, prompting Obama to complain that he was being interrupted.

“I gotcha. Okay. I got you. Thank you. That’s a great banner,” the president said, trying to appease a young woman chanting from a crowd. The protest brought his comments at the Lake Tahoe Summit in Nevada to a full stop for a few moments, and also raised Obama’s hackles a bit.

“I’m about to talk about it though,” Obama said to the protesters, who were trying to shout over him. “So, you’re interrupting me.”

Climate activists have been protesting the administration for moving forward with oil and gas leases, despite the president’s many regulations and support for an international treaty to stop global warming.
