    Katherine Prudhomme O'Brien, who dared to ask Hillary about Juanita Broaddrick at a town hall meeting in Derry, NH, will be on Hannity's show on Tuesday evening. Katherine has had three confrontations with Hillary, who has denied even knowing who Juanita Broaddrick is. So how can Hillary dismiss the rape charge if she doesn't even know about the victim? The story of the rapist and rapist enabler is not going away. Someone tell Trump to watch.

From the podium, Trump shouted to the heckler "get the hell out of here" and told security to "throw him out." ...Trump added fuel to the fire during an appearance on FOX News when he said, "Maybe he should have been roughed up because it was absolutely disgusting what he was doing."

    A heckler was ejected from Hillary Clinton’s economic speech in New York City Monday after asking the former secretary of state about her position on investment banking regulations. Business Insider reported that Daniel Burke, a self-identified organizer for the LaRouche PAC which supports political activist Lyndon LaRouche, yelled at Clinton at the conclusion of her speech, “Senator Clinton, will you restore Glass-Steagall?” Clinton did not respond to the inquiry, and Burke was removed from the event location, the New School in Manhattan, by security. Passed in 1933 and then repealed 66 years later, the Glass-Steagall Act separates commercial banks from...

    President Barack Obama is used to hecklers stopping him during speeches -- but he draws the line when the audience interrupts him in his own house. As Obama was speaking at a White House event honoring LGBT Pride Month on Wednesday, an accented voice rang out from the crowd. Obama wasn't amused. "Shame on you," he told his heckler, who was protesting deportations under the Obama administration. Obama responded, "Listen you're in my house ... it's not respectful." The interruption persisted, however, and Obama asked for the heckler to be removed from the East Room. "As a general rule I...

    President Obama faced off with a heckler during a reception celebrating LGBT Pride Month at the White House, telling the person “you’re in my house.” Obama was interrupted shortly after beginning his speech to the crowd by a person who repeatedly shouted the president’s name. “No, no, no , no. Listen, you’re in my house,” Obama told the person. “You’re not going to get a good response from me by interrupting me like this,” Obama said. But the heckler would not let up, despite Obama’s pleas, boos from the crowd and chants of “Obama! Obama!” The president became visibly irritated,...

They're also getting paid, two of the protesters and an Obama campaign official told BuzzFeed. At the candidate's afternoon stop outside a bakery in DeWitt, a group of about 15 protesters stood behind a police barricade, a few of them chanting in support of Obama. Asked why he was protesting, a man dressed in a...

When Romney reached out for a supporter’s infant daughter at a polling place, someone in the crowd shouted, “Are you going to fire the baby?” Still, Romney was looking for a big win Tuesday night that could contribute to a sense that his campaign for the GOP nomination may be unstoppable, despite some foot-in-mouth moments.

After approaching Cantor, she asked “When are you going to grow up?” and called him “the most smug...

    The scheduled reading of the Constitution in the House went off smoothly today, after a few of the usual procedural squabbles and legislative throat-clearing. Most representatives of both parties did a perfectly fine job of reading their assigned bit of the text. Speaker John Boehner got to read the really soaring words at the beginning, and gave an exceptionally powerful performance. At the other extreme, watching disgraced Democrat Charlie Rangel read from the Constitution was like watching atheist comedian Ricky Gervais read the Bible, but not as funny. The only bump in an otherwise smooth process came when the requirements...

In an interview with CNN afterwards, Sen. John McCain trashed Wilson’s heckling and urged him to apologize....

Earlier, Republicans laughed when Obama acknowledged that there are still significant details to be worked out before a health overhaul can be passed. Wilson's outburst caused Obama to pause briefly before he went on with...

    Over the weekend, I wrote about Washington state Supreme Court justice Richard Sanders, an old friend of mine from my days in Seattle who had been identified on Friday by lawyer Wendy Long as the man who heckled Attorney General Michael Mukasey during his Federalist Society address. ...

But I would like to know the truth and I think...
