Protestor To Hillary Clinton: You Are Evil And Guilty

BY:

Two protestors interrupted a Hillary Clinton campaign event on Saturday, with one being escorted out after shouting that the Democratic presidential frontrunner is "evil" and "guilty."

Clinton was speaking to a crowd of supporters in Los Angeles when two individuals separately protested the rally and her candidacy. One man could be heard shouting, "She is guilty, she is guilty, she is evil," as security removed him from the event.

The audience started shouting "Hillary! Hillary!" in an effort to drown out the protestor, causing Clinton to give a big smile.

"I have to say, we have had a very spirited primary campaign," Clinton said, drawing cheers from the crowd. "Which I think is great, but just remember, it’s not enough to say what’s wrong; you’ve got to tell people what you’re going to do to make it right."

CNN’s Dan Merica reported the protests via Twitter:

It is unclear who the protestors were, although Clinton’s response suggests that she thought they were supporters of Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt), Clinton’s primary opponent. Her campaign has argued throughout the primary that Sanders describes problems the country faces but does not have real, practical solutions to address them, as she did Saturday in response to the protestors.

Clinton has had to battle accusations of dishonesty since she started her bid for the White House, with a majority of Americans believing that she is dishonest and untrustworthy, according to recent polling.

This has largely stemmed from the ongoing FBI investigation into Clinton’s private email server and the controversy surrounding her role in the aftermath of the 2012 terrorist attacks on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya.
