How do these insane hecklers who are always carted away by security like wretches get into high level government news conferences so

It is a tactic that Saul Alinsky penned in Rules for Radicals: Here is Rule No. 3: "Whenever possible, go outside the expertise of the enemy." Look for ways to increase insecurity, anxiety and uncertainty. (This happens all the time. Watch how many organizations under attack are blind-sided by seemingly irrelevant arguments that they are then forced to address.)
Heckling works well because politicians usually expect to address receptive crowds. Hecklers can throw them off stride, make them look anxious and confused.
