Bill Clinton got into a tense squabble with a Benghazi protester during a South Carolina campaign stop, telling the man who interrupted him, "Shut up and listen to my answer."
The confrontation happened Friday during an appearance in Bluffton, South Carolina, where the former president was speaking on behalf of wife Hillary, the front-runner in the Democratic race for the White House, NBC News reported.
The audience member identified himself as a Marine who had done two tours in Iraq and demanded answers about the four American deaths that resulted from the Benghazi, Libya, attack on a U.S. compound on Sept. 11, 2012, when Hillary Clinton was secretary of state.
"We had four lives in Benghazi that were killed and your wife tried to cover it up," the man said, to boos from the crowd.
Former President Clinton thanked the man for his service and tried to break in to respond, but the man kept talking.
"Would you let me answer?" Clinton asked. "You listen to me."
