While campaigning for Hillary Clinton in Fayetteville, North Carolina on Friday afternoon, Obama yelled at the crowd after they began booing a Donald Trump supporter who was at the rally.
Obama momentarily lost control of the crowd, tried to get them to quiet down multiple times, and then finally scolded the Clinton supporters for not respecting the elderly man’s freedom of speech.
“Everybody, hey, listen up. Hey, I told you to be focused, and you’re not focused right now,” Obama said. “Hold up, everybody sit down and be quiet for a second. Everyone sit down and be quiet for a second.”
“You’ve got an older candidate who is supporting his candidate, he’s not doing nothing, you don’t have to worry about him. This is what I mean about folks not being focused,” Obama continued. “First of all, we live in a country that respects free speech, second of all it looks like he may have served in our military, and we’ve got to respect that. Third of all, he was elderly, and we’ve got to respect our elders. Fourth of all, don’t boo: vote.”
