While campaigning for his wife, the former Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, in Philadelphia, former President Bill Clinton had a heated confrontation with protesters from BlackLivesMatter, telling them that they should “tell the truth!”
The protesters at this particular event were specific. They held signs criticizing some of of the bills Bill Clinton signed into law when he were president. Some of their signs read; “Clinton crime bill destroyed our communities” and “Welfare reform increased poverty.” And they accused Bill Clinton of destroying black lives with these laws.
But Bill Clinton was not having it!
“I don’t know how you would characterize the gang leaders who got 13-year-old kids hopped up on crack and sent them out on the street to murder other African-American children,” Bill Clinton told the crowd. “Maybe you thought they were good citizens. She didn’t. You are defending the people who killed the lives you say matter. Tell the truth.”
