Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton's campaign devised a unique way to keep the press from getting too close to her during Saturday's Independence Day parade in Gorham, New Hampshire.
A rope line.
Two lengths were apparently needed at one point:

And it appeared effective:

The Washington Post reported that the press was kept 10 to 15 feet away from Clinton — and couldn't hear what she was saying to people.
Although the paper noted that protesters could be heard shouting, "What about Benghazi?" and "Show us your emails!"
The New Hampshire Republican Party took issue with "the use of a rope line to protect the arrogant Democrat frontrunner on a public street," the Post reported.
“Hillary Clinton continues to demonstrate her obvious contempt and disdain for the Granite State’s style of grassroots campaigning," Jennifer Horn, chairman of the state GOP, said in a statement. "The use of a rope line at a New Hampshire parade is a sad joke and insults the traditions of our First-in-the-Nation primary."
