Former President Bill Clinton told a Marine veteran to “shut up” during a campaign stop for Hillary Clinton in Bluffton, South Carolina on Feb. 26.
During a campaign event in the South Carolina town, President Clinton’s speech was interrupted by a Marine veteran asking what Hillary would do about Veteran’s Affairs if she became president.
“What do you think should be done with the VA?,” President Clinton responded.
"We had four lives in Benghazi that were killed and your wife tried to cover it up,” the veteran said to Clinton.
The crowd became angry, yelling and jeering at the veteran. The former president asked, “Can I answer?”
As the veteran addressed the crowd and continued to speak out about Benghazi and Veteran’s Affairs, President Clinton became frustrated.
He told the veteran, “I’m not your commander in chief anymore but if I were, I’d tell you to be more polite and sit down.”
“I wouldn’t listen!,” the Marine responded.
“Do you have the courage to listen to my answer?," Clinton asked. “Don't throw him out. If you'll shut up and listen to my answer, I’ll answer it.”
As the Marine was escorted out of the gymnasium, a woman who filmed the entire incident stood up and yelled, “Hillary lied over four coffins.”
The woman continued to shout at Clinton before she was also removed from the event.
