Hillary Clinton Shuts Down Heckler: ‘You Are Very Rude’
Hillary Clinton is no stranger to hecklers. On Sunday, she called one of them out for being “very rude.”
“You are very rude and I’m not going to ever call on you,” Clinton told the woman, who later identified herself as Republican New Hampshire State Rep. Katherine Prudhomme O’Brien.
ABC News reports:
Clinton’s response drew applause and a standing ovation from many in the crowd of roughly 750 who were packed into an auditorium of a Derry, New Hampshire, middle school.
During the Q&A portion of the town hall, O’Brien, who represents Derry, the town where Clinton’s event was held, repeatedly stood up and yelled out to Clinton. What she was saying was inaudible to reporters sitting in the back of the room, and it’s unclear if Clinton was able to make out what she was saying.
Later, however, O’Brien told reporters she was trying to ask Clinton about Juanita Broaddrick a woman who in 1999 made rape allegations against Bill Clinton. According to a posting on O’Brien’s Facebook account, this is the third time she has attempted to ask Clinton about Broaddrick.
The exchange today comes one day before the former president will be in New Hampshire to campaign on behalf of his wife. It also comes amid ongoing attacks against the Clintons by Republican frontrunner Donald Trump, who recently tweeted that Bill Clinton has a “terrible record of women abuse.”
