It goes with the job -- but even President Obama seemed a little surprised at the crazies who heckled him in Hollywood on Monday, and has the video and the president’s reaction.

The first crazy to accost the president during a campaign fundraiser at the House of Blues on the famed Sunset Strip repeatedly shouted from the front row, "Jesus Christ is God!” as soon as he started speaking.

While Obama's supporters drowned out the religious ruckus with chants of "Four more years, four more years," the president politely humored the off-the-wall guest, and told him: "First of all, I agree that Jesus Christ is the lord. I believe in that,” he said, despite looking a little flustered.

As he was escorted out by security, the man of God amped up his offensive tirade by telling Obama, "You're the Antichrist."

Obama's next question to the crowd kept up the unusual theme of the evening, as he went from leader of the free world to coat check.

"I think the young man may have left his jacket, so make sure he gets his jacket," he said, while pointing into the crowd, before being corrected by female member of the audience.

"Oh, that's yours? Hold on, hold on, hold on - that's hers!" he laughed.

The next man to approach the President was a lot more laid back, for reasons that quickly became clear, as he called, "Don’t forget medical marijuana!” as Obama discussed health care reform.

Barack politely thanked him for his tip and the guest was allowed to stay.

As previously reported, the next stop in the evening for the president was trendy West Hollywood restaurant Fig & Olive, where Executive Chef Pascal Lorange hosted a fundraiser dinner with a price per plate of an astounding $17,900.

Located on trendy Melrose Place, Mediterranean mecca Fig & Olive has become a celebrity favorite since it's grand opening last February. Most recently Fox hosted it's post-Emmy party at the restaurant on September 18.

DreamWorks Animation CEO Jeffrey Katzenburg, actors Jack Black and Danny DeVito, actress Rhea Perlman, producer Jon Landau, director Judd Apatow, music producer Quincy Jones, and Calif. Gov. Jerry Brown were among the A-list names in attendance at the dinner, reported KTLA News.

Obama leaves Los Angeles Tuesday morning and travels to Denver.
