Bachmann temporarily left the stage mid-speech under police escort after protesters stood up and started chanting about 10 minutes into her address. [...]
Bachmann first stood frozen at the podium, seemingly unsure whether to let the protesters continue or try to stop them. Members of the audience started a loud counter-protest of "sit down!" to no avail.
Bachmann was escorted off the stage by police and led away from the stage...
She was clearly thrown and tried to joke her way out of it with, "Don't you love the First Amendment?"
Yes, yes we do, no matter how hard some try to assault our rights.
