The "young man," as Obama referred to him, shouted that the "Christian God is the one and only true living God... Jesus Christ is God," and called Obama the "antichrist." He was quickly drowned out by a booing crowd, which then began chanting "four more years." Obama later agreed "that Jesus Christ is the lord."

A later, more congenial comment from the audience told Obama to "not forget the medical marijuana." Obama replied, "Thank you for that."
