Watch: Bill Clinton Loses It on Black Lives Matters Protesters

On the campaign trail for Hillary in Philadelphia today, Bill Clinton was repeatedly interrupted by Black Lives Matter protesters shouting anti-Hillary slogans and taking her to task for using the term "superpredators" to describe black youths two decades ago.


Although Hillary Clinton has apologized for using that term back in 1996, Bill did not get the memo about the racist superpredator myth.

He lashed out that Black Lives Matter protesters were also defending "gang leaders" and murderers. "I don't know how you would describe the gang leaders who got 13-year-olds hopped up on crack and sent them out in the streets to murder other African-American children," he said. "You are defending the people who kill the lives you say matter."

Ah, no.
