On Tuesday, Obama gave a speech at the national convention of the Veterans of Foreign Wars in Pittsburgh. As soon as he approached the podium, however, an elderly veteran stood up with a sign that read, “The Emperor of Benghazi Has No Clothes.”
Seeing this, two other veterans attacked the man, knocking him to the ground as they ripped the sign away from him. According to Western Journalism, the elderly veteran defiantly stood up again and through his hands in the air after his sign was taken away.
Clearly thrown off by the commotion, President Obama tried to ignore what was happening and continue on with his speech, in which he finally acknowledged the five victims of the Chattanooga shooting after virtually ignoring their deaths for almost a week.
“Our thoughts and prayers as a Nation are with the service members killed this week in Chattanooga,” Obama said in the speech.
