Hillary Clinton heckled over Bill Clinton’s sex scandals
A Republican state representative from New Hampshire heckled Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton during a campaign event over former President Bill Clinton’s sexual scandals.
When Clinton began taking questions at a Derry town hall, Katherine Prudhomme O’Brien, a GOP state representative from Rockingham, New Hampshire, stood up and began shouting at Clinton.
After Clinton ignored the protestor once, O’Brien began yelling again during another pause in the town hall meeting.
“You are very rude, and I’m not ever going to call on you,” Clinton said forcefully, looking directly at the woman. “Thank you.”
O’Brien’s shouts were inaudible to reporters and most in the audience. It’s unclear if Clinton was able to understand what she was saying.
After the event, the lawmaker said she was trying to ask the Democratic frontrunner about her husband’s sexual impropriety decades ago.
O’Brien said she used to be a Democrat but became a Republican because of what she saw happen in “the Clinton years.”
This is not the first time the former secretary of state has been directly questioned about her husband’s indecent behavior.
A woman asked her last month about Juanita Broaddrick, Kathleen Willey and Paula Jones, women who have accused Bill Clinton of sexual impropriety.
Republican front-runner Donald Trump has launched new attacks against the Clintons in recent weeks, calling the former president “one of the great abusers of the world.”
Trump said last week that Bill Clinton is considered a reasonable target for criticism because of his alleged sexual affairs with Monica Lewinsky, Paula Jones and the “many” other women.
The billionaire businessman also stated that Hillary Clinton, though she plays the “women card,” isn’t very popular among voters of her gender.
