For perhaps the first time in modern history, the President of the United States was actually heckled by a member of Congress. Rep. Joe Wilson, conservative Republican of South Carolina, interrupted President Obama’s speech Wednesday night with a shout of "You lie!"
The outrageous exchange happened during President Obama’s announcement that Democratic health proposals would not cover illegal immigrants. They will not.
Members of both parties condemned the heckling and Wilson later apologized for his outburst. #JoeWilson is the #1 trending topic on Twitter where demands for his censure and more are flooding the internets.
