Bill Clinton Gets Irate & Slaps Obama Supporter? … Is Bill Clinton trying to Sabotage Hillary’s Campaign?
Is Bill Clinton purposely trying to sabotage Hillary Clinton’s campaign or has he just become a crotchety old man? No matter how some ill mannered person acts at a campaign stop, is this how a former president is supposed to conduct themselves?
Today at an event in Ohio, Obama supporter Robert Holeman got under the skin of Bill Clinton during the event. It is being reported that Bill Clinton smacked a rude Obama supporter in the face. The LEFT can defend Bill Clinton’s actions all they want and blame the heckler … the fact of the matter is that one would hope that a former President of the United States has a bit more decorum than to respond in this manner. We can only thank God that Clinton never had to handle a post 9–11 world while in office.
“I asked the president to please stop the bickering between the campaigns,” Holeman said in an interview afterwards. “All this name calling is like the bully in the yard. He can’t get his way, he can’t get nothing done.” Holeman said he thought Clinton was “gasping for air.”
“This is the last hurrah. After March 4, Hillary Clinton will be out of the race for good, and Obama will take the commanding lead,” he said. “She should back him with her delegates immediately. That’s what I’m asking them to do.”
Holeman said that Clinton responded by saying Obama came after him first. Holeman also described Clinton’s reaction to him as “irate.”
“I think he even hit me in the face with his hand,” he said. “He did give me a little pop. It was okay, because I understand his tenacity for his wife.” Clinton did engage Holeman for a few minutes, at times pointing directly at him. It was unclear whether he did make physical contact, however.
