In a shocking turn of events, former president and husband of the leading Democratic candidate, Bill Clinton skewered some of the Democratic constituents in attendance at a rally for his wife in Philadelphia.
A group of ‘Black Lives Matter’ protestors, as has become increasingly normal, interrupted Clinton’s speech to heckle him about the criminal justice reform bill that was passed when he was in office and suggesting that he be charged with crimes against humanity.
Clinton didn’t respond like Bernie Sanders and allow the protestors to take over the stage and microphone, nor did he respond like his wife and meet with them backstage. According to Mediate, Clinton told the protestors the exact opposite of what they were expecting to hear.
“I don’t know how you would characterize the gang leaders who got 13-year-old kids hopped up on crack and sent them out on the street to murder other African-American children,” Clinton fired back. “Maybe you thought they were good citizens. You are defending the people who kill the people whose lives you say matter!”
As the protestors continued to interrupt, Clinton turned back to the crowd. “They’re afraid of the truth,” Clinton said. “They’re afraid of the truth.”
Wow! What do you think of Clinton’s response? Did you expect that from a member of the Democratic party?
