Such a charming bunch.
Occupy Des Moines protesters sidelined the endorsement of Newt Gingrich from one of Iowa’s top political leaders.
“Mic Check,” Adam Mason of Iowa Citizens for Community Improvement yelled and a few others from his group shouted as he quickly stood up and security officials ushered to his direction and escorted him out.
A few minutes later after the commotion had subsided, a few others began chanting, “Put people first.”
Gingrich’s response: “I was at the University of Iowa the other day and that same 1/10th of one percent – all noise, no thought – tried to drown out the conversation so I appreciate you all putting it in that perspective,” said Gingrich, a former U.S. House speaker and 2012 Republican presidential candidate.
The endorsement came from Iowa House Speaker Kraig Paulsen, R-Hiawatha.
It appears these “Occupy Des Moines” cretins plan on annoying all the candidates.
