Barack Obama bantered with a heckler at a fundraiser in California, at one point declaring his love for the man interrupting his speech.
The heckler repeatedly shouted "Freedom for Ethiopia" while Obama wrapped up an address at the Democratic National Committee event.
"I agree with you, but why don't we talk about it later?" the US President initially suggested.
"We love you," added the man, to which Obama replied: "I love you back."
The President concluding by quipping: "You kind of screwed up my ending, but that's OK."
