Clinton Takes on Heckler At Rally: 'It's Time People Stop Listening to Republican Propaganda

News

"You are entitled to your opinion, but you're not entitled to your own facts."

Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton confronted a heckler at a Monday rally in Kentucky, suggesting the woman had been misled by "Republican propaganda."

The interruption from the protester came when Clinton said Gov. Matt Bevin (R) is trying to "undo" the accomplishments of his predecessor, Democratic Gov. Steve Beshear.

It was not clear what the heckler shouted from the video, but Clinton responded, "Oh yes is is ma'am. Yes, it is. You are entitled to your opinion, but you're not entitled to your own facts."

"It's time people stop listening to Republican propaganda about the economy, education and health care," Clinton added after saying she'd be willing to meet with the protester. "Now you know, I have no problem with people expressing themselves. But I do wish when people have an opinion, and I'm not making a comment about this lady, but I'd wish you'd get the facts. Because the facts are really clear."

Clinton's comments on the center-right media resemble similar remarks her husband, former President Bill Clinton, has made on the campaign trail. Earlier this year, for instance, he sparred with a veteran and contended the man's mind had been "poisoned by lies."
