Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton showed she has zero tolerance for heckling over the weekend. During a town hall meeting in New Hampshire on Sunday, the frontrunner slammed an obnoxiously intrusive Republican lawmaker attempting to ask her questions regarding Bill Clinton's sexual history.
Republican state representative Katherine Prudhomme-O’Brien stood and flailed her hands wildly to catch the attention of Clinton. Prudhomme-O-Brien was hoping to ask the former secretary of state about her husband’s assault allegations of Juanita Broaddrick and Kathleen Willey.
After the third interruption, Clinton finally acknowledge her presence and said, “You are very rude, and I’m not going to ever call on you."
The response was met with a roar of applause from supporters.
In a Facebook post, Prudhomme-O’Brien justified her behavior during the event by claiming that the anger towards her over her outburst is misdirected.
“If I could have brought this issue up in any polite way or if people in her campaign really did follow up with me by calling me, I would never have been so impolite,” Prudhomme-O’Brien wrote. I know I was impolite but in this whole scenario, you are angry at the wrong person, save that anger for Bill Clinton for being a sexual predator or for the woman who enables him-not me.”
This is my response to a man who wanted to know why I asked the questions as rudely as I did; Thank you for asking what...Posted by Katherine Prudhomme O'Brien, NH State Representative on Sunday, January 3, 2016
