Hillary event crashed by immigration protesters; Ignores questions


For a Democrat considering a run for president, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton certainly knows how to duck the issues. At a book tour stop in August, Clinton slipped out while ignoring two reporters’ questions about the Michael Brown demonstrations in Ferguson, Mo. “If girlfriend thinks she has my vote after remaining silent,” wrote one tweeter, “then she’s in for a big surprise.”

Members of pro-amnesty group United We Dream, who recently staged a sit-in at Sen. Harry Reid’s office, on Sunday confronted Clinton at the Tom Harkin Steak Fry.

Six members of the group also crashed a speech Tuesday at a fundraiser for 9/11 Health Watch.

Activists at Hillary event were affiliated with United We Dream. They were removed from room by security.

And once again, Clinton ignored a reporter’s question about the disruption.

Hillary didn't answer my question about protesters at her event, but 1,000% sure she heard me Was about two feet away http://t.co/xznluVcO2M

“After the activists were removed, Clinton greeted admirers and took photos with people who attended the event,” wrote Business Insider’s Hunter Walker. “She did not respond to multiple questions from Business Insider about her reaction to the activists.”

@hunterw you got the Zephyr treatment

@hunterw Maybe next time ask for s*lfie, then ask Q while you're cheek to cheek. She can't avoid you.
