Hillary Slams Trump’s ‘Dark, Divisive’ Vision After Protester Shouts ‘Bill Clinton is a Rapist’
Hillary Clinton got unusually frustrated last night as she condemned a protester shouting “Bill Clinton is a rapist” during her rally in Fort Lauderdale, FL.
Clinton’s events have been interrupted by pro-Donald Trump hecklers in the past, though her usual style consists of ignoring them and continuing with her speech. Tuesday’s event saw a bit of a departure from that norm, when Clinton broke away from her stump speech to address a man who was shouting and carrying a sign about her husband’s alleged sexual transgressions.
“I am sick and tired of the negative, dark, divisive, dangerous vision and the anger of people who support Donald Trump,” Clinton responded. “It is time for us to say no, we are not going backwards, we’re going forward into a brighter future,”
The protester was quickly drowned out by chants of “Hillary, Hillary!” and he was led away after his sign was torn apart by the crowd.
Over the past several weeks, Trump supporters have worked to get on TV and infiltrate pro-Clinton events to shout about the former president’s actions. These actions seem to have been prompted by Alex Jones, the InfoWars conspiracy theorist, who has instructed his audience to perform the stunt for a cash prize.
Trump has made a point of talking about Clinton’s husband throughout the election, and he was recently seen smiling when an audience member offered the “Bill Clinton is a rapist” line during his rally.
