At a campaign stop for Hillary Clinton in Florida on Monday, former President Bill Clinton showed how he deals with any Donald Trump supporter who interrupts his events.

“And, by the way, a lot of Republicans thought that, which is why they spent the last three years trying to tear her down — ’cause they know if you nominate her, they’re gonna have to eat the words that they said when they weren’t running for office.”
