‘Are you going to give me a chance to answer?’
Former President Bill Clinton became angry when he was heckled by protesters during a campaign event in Bluffton, South Carolina on Friday.
The protesters demanded to know if his wife Hillary Clinton lied about the four American deaths that occurred during the attack in Benghazi, Libya on September 11, 2012.
“What do you think should be done with the VA?” Clinton asked.
The man responded that he’s seen Gold Star families “who have mourned.”
“We had four lives in Benghazi killed and your wife tried to cover it up.”
The crowd began to moan and boo in unison.
The man described himself as a Marine.
The man continued to attempt to talk.
“I heard your speech. I heard your speech. Will you let me answer? I’m not your commander in chief anymore but if I were, I’d tell you to be more polite and sit down,” Clinton said, growing angrier as the man began screaming at him.
“Do you have the courage to listen to my answer? Don’t throw him out. Shut up and listen to my answer. I’ll answer it,” Clinton said to the man as the individual was led out by law enforcement.
Another woman yelled out, “Hillary lied over four coffins! She lied and she lied to those families, so all those families are liars? I want to know. Did she lie?”
Clinton responded, “Are you going to give me a chance to answer?”
“Answer. Did she lie?” the woman said.
“No,” Clinton responded.
“Those families are lying?” The woman asked.
“Will you listen to me?” Clinton responded.At that point the crowd began to drown her out as she shouted, “No, I’m not going to shut up!”
“Why are you trying to not listen to my answer?” Clinton inquired.
“I am,” she said.
“Are you afraid?” he asked.
“No. I’m not afraid because I know you’re going to lie,” she said.
