On Tuesday in Greensboro, N.C., two protesters interrupted President Barack Obama’s stump speech about Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.
The two seemed connected to a bribe from right wing conservative conspiracy theorist Alex Jones who declared earlier in the fall that he would give $5,000 to anyone who got on television wearing a shirt that said “Bill Clinton is a rapist.”
Many in the conservative community believe that throughout his political career, former President Bill Clinton sexually assaulted several women.
“Anyone that gets on national TV with the shirt clearly, for more than five seconds, gets $1,000. That means behind cameras; you name it. Anyone that gets it on air on national TV and gets the words out ‘Bill Clinton is a rapist,’ or things along that line, with a bullhorn […] I could go to this right now, $5,000,” Jones said on his program, according to The Hill.
It is unclear if President Obama noticed what the protesters wrote on their shirts. He responded with a familiar quip he has used throughout his political career.
“Is somebody hollering again? You know what, here’s the deal — try to get your own rally!” President Obama joked.
“See, if you can’t get your own rally, don’t come mess up somebody else’s, right? We got work to do here!”
