Bill Clinton was interrupted Saturday while on the stump for Democratic presidential nominee and wife, Hillary Clinton, by a man calling him a “rapist.”
…not that the heckler rattled the unflappable former president.
Speaking at a campaign rally in Wisconsin, Clinton had just began saying: “Nobody can dispute the fact…
“That you are a rapist!” the heckler suddenly shouted, finishing the sentence for the Democrat politician.
“Oh, yeah?” Clinton calmly responded, before the crowd began shouting the man down.

Ever the consummate politician, Clinton looked to take advantage of all the controversy swirling around rival Donald Trump over a leaked video capturing the GOP nominee saying lewd things about women.
“You gotta feel sorry for him — they had a bad day yesterday, so they’re trying to make it up,” Clinton said with a laugh.
“This is what is the matter with politics,” he then lectured. “When other people pour poison down your throat, don’t drink it.”
Advice Monica Lewinsky could surely have used two short decades ago.
