Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton drew a standing ovation last night in Buffalo after a heckler reportedly yelled at her, “Benghazi, you let them die.”
As the heckler in the upper deck yelled, the former U.S. senator from New York appeared unfazed when the person criticized her for the attack on the mission in Benghazi, Libya.
She kept speaking as the heckler was escorted out.
“We have to be willing to come together as citizens to focus on the kind of future we want, which doesn’t include yelling,” Clinton said. “It includes sitting down and talking with one another.”
WIVB in Buffalo reported what the heckler said.
That led to the standing ovation during her 40-minute speech at the University of Buffalo. Here’s the video courtesy of Gannett’s WGRZ in Buffalo.
The exchange starts at the 1:30 mark.
In her speech, Clinton touted the collaborative spirit in Buffalo and didn’t mention herself when she was asked what a good president in 2016 would look like.
“That is a new way of phrasing it. I have to give you a lot of credit,” Clinton smiled to the moderator. “I have to say, I’m not as interested in as what the candidate looks like as what the candidate stands for. And what the candidate really believes needs to be the agenda for America’s future, particularly as it relates to young people like students at this great university.”
