President Barack Obama was heckled by a pro-gay protester for a second time while campaigning for fellow Democrat Senator Barbara Boxer in California, CNN reported.

The unidentified protester disrupted Obama's speech Tuesday night. The man shouted at Obama for not moving faster on repealing “Don't Ask, Don't Tell,” the policy that bans gay troops from serving openly.

“Maybe he didn't read the newspapers, because we're working with Congress as we speak to roll back 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell,'” Obama said referring to a compromise agreed to by Democratic leaders and the White House Monday to move forward on repeal.

Last month, a group of protesters shouted at the president: “What about 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell?”

Obama raised his hand, then said: “Hey, hold on a second. We are going to do that.”

The protesters continued, chanting “Yes we can” over the president's remarks.

After waiting about 30 seconds, Obama said: “Guys, guys, I agree.”

“What the young man was talking about was we need to repeal 'don't ask, don't tell,' which I agree with. And which we have begun to do. But let me say this: When you got an ally like Barbara Boxer and you got an ally like me, who are standing for the same thing, then you don't know exactly why you got to holler because we already hear you.”

At Tuesday's event, Obama joked: “C'mon, man, I'm dealing with Congress here. It takes a little bit of time.”
