Bill Clinton Tells Marine Veteran To Sit Down And "Shut Up"

Clinton supporters booed and shouted at the Marine veteran until security forcibly removed him – all because he asked a touchy question.

While campaigning in Bluffton, South Carolina, for his wife Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign, former President Bill Clinton got involved in a heated exchange with a military veteran.

The protester on the campaign trail identified himself as a former Marine and asked former president why his wife “lied over the coffins” of the men killed in the Benghazi attacks.

“I did eight years of active duty service, two tours of Iraq,” the Marine said. “We had four lives in Benghazi who were killed and your wife tried to cover it up.”

The exchange began as Clinton spoke in support of his wife's current run for the White House and thanked the man for his service, insisting that the room settle down.

However, as the crowd began booing at them, a woman accompanying the Marine yelled, "Hillary lied over four coffins!”

"Are you going to let me answer?" Clinton snapped at the duo. "This is America. I get to answer. You listen to me. I heard you."

"I'm not your commander in chief anymore, but if I were, I'd tell you to be more polite," the former president added, to which the Marine responded, "And I wouldn't listen. I would just raise my voice."

As security escorted the protesters out of the event, Clinton asked, "Do you have the courage to listen to my answer? Don't throw him out. If he'll shut up and listen to my answer, I'll answer it."
