President Obama fought back against a protester shouting, “Bill Clinton is a rapist” at an event in Cleveland, Ohio, today.
“Hold on a second, young man,” a notably flustered Obama told the protester. “Don’t be interrupting everybody. Come on.”
The president then attempted to lead rally attendees in a cheer repeating the name “Hillary.”
“Come on everybody, let’s do our little chant,” he told the crowd.
“I noticed this has been happening everywhere and I keep on telling folks, you gotta organize your own rallies,” the president stated, referring to a previous event at which he was heckled.
“You know, if you’re confident about the other guy, just go to his rallies. I feel confident about my candidate, that’s why I’m at this rally. So you don’t have to spend time over here. Go knock on some doors for your guy. That’s a better way to spend your time. Unless you’re just being paid to be here – in which case, hey you know everybody got to make a living.”
“WOR’s Todd Schnitt reported the man was black,” according to The American Mirror.

This is the second time this week Obama has been heckled while at a campaign rally for Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.
On Tuesday protesters shouting “Bill Clinton is a rapist” also interrupted Obama in the middle of a joke during a speech at a rally in Greensboro, North Carolina.
