Obama: There are also those who claim that our reform efforts would insure illegal immigrants. This, too, is false. [loud muttering from the Republicans] The reforms—the reforms I am proposing would not apply to those who are here illegally.Truly gobsmacking.
Wilson: You lie!
[Murmurs of praise and agreement from the Republicans; murmurs of shock and censure from the Democrats. Nancy Pelosi glares at Wilson, her mouth open.]
Obama: It's not true.
Wilson has since apologized:
This evening I let my emotions get the best of me when listening to the President's remarks regarding the coverage of illegal immigrants in the health care bill. While I disagree with the President's statement, my comments were inappropriate and regrettable. I extend sincere apologies to the President for this lack of civility.To be filed under Things to Which I Cannot Relate: Being so emotional about denying people healthcare that I am compelled to be a wildly disrespectful wankstain and make myself an international embarrassment.
