OneIndia has learnt that the video is doctored. In the original video the crowd chants in Obama's support when he was interrupted by a heckler. We also found a video posted by CNN about the incident.

In the video Obama can be seen talking about the attack on Paul Pelosi, the 82 year old husband of US Speaker Nancy Pelosi. He is also heard condemning the hostility in American politics. A man is then heard from the crowd yelling Mr. President.

While the heckler could not be heard, he brought the speech to a halt. However contrary to the claim made in the viral video, in the original one, the crowd can be heard chanting, 'Obama Obama.'
