Bill & Hillary Clinton Heckled About Jeffrey Epstein During 'Boring' Talk
Man shouts about Jeffrey Epstein before being removed
Bill and Hillary Clinton were heckled about Jeffrey Epstein during the opening of their national speaking tour, that was panned as "boring," according to reports.
The event was slated by a New York Post reporter in attendance at the show, who agreed with a front-row heckler who reportedly blasted the proceedings as “boring” before being hauled off by security.
The Post’s Maureen Callahan, who paid $210 to attend the 90-minute talk, wrote about her experience.
She describes watching “longtime Clinton lackey Paul Begala” launch “softballs” at the Clintons in what, in her opinion, turned out to be a “snoozefest,” with the heckler seemingly being the highlight if the evening.
Callahan slammed the show, except for “the most exciting moment of the night,” when “a man in the front row stood up and interrupted.”
“Bill, this is boring!” he yelled.
As the heckler tried asking his question - “Why don’t you talk about... " - Hillary immediately began talking over him, saying that the “important political conversations” they were trying to have could be difficult, especially when interrupted by such “agent provocateurs.”
“... Jeffrey Epstein!” shouted the man.
"Oh, the irony," said Callahan.
The heckler was, of course, swiftly hauled away, and the conversation returned to Bill talking about the good old days when he was president…
Billionaire financier Jeffrey Epstein was convicted of soliciting an underage girl for prostitution in 2008 and served 13 months in federal prison.
Bill Clinton famously took 26 flights on the registered sex offender’s private jet.
Elsewhere in the New York show, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton could not hide her merriment as she responded to the arrest of Wikileaks founder Julian Assange.
Clinton mocked Assange, who she largely blames for her failed bid for the White House.
Speaking at the same event in New York, Clinton said:
“I do think it's a little ironic that he may be the only foreigner that this administration would welcome to the United States."
Hillary was asked about the Wikileaks founder's arrest during the talk, which also included by Bill Clinton and former Clinton staffer Paul Begala, who quipped “couldn't happen to a nicer guy.”
