Elizabeth Warren got an earful in New Hampshire this week.
During a campaign event in New Hampshire, she was confronted by a man who was obviously angry about the position she has taken on Iran following the killing of Soleimani.
FOX News reports:
Warren town hall interrupted by angry protester accusing her of ‘siding with terrorists’
An irate protester interrupted the start of Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren’s campaign event here Friday, angrily accusing the Massachusetts senator of “siding with terrorists” amid the conflict between the United States and Iran.
As soon as Warren took to the mic at the town hall-style event, the man charged to the front of the room and began yelling.
“You’re siding with Iran,” the protester said to Warren, before being ushered out. “Why are you siding with terrorists?”
He also told her: “Hope you resign.”
Warren responded as the crowd booed at the protester: “This is a man who’s deeply upset. It’s all right. It’s time for you to leave.”
Here’s the full transcript of what was said:
.@ewarren was interrupted by a protester at the beginning of her town hall in Dover, New Hampshire.
Here’s what the protester said and what she responded 👇

Watch the video:
Elizabeth Warren almost immediately interrupted by a protester in Dover, New Hampshire, a man who shouted that she supports Iran and called her a “fraud.” Warren remained calm, let the man have his say.

Warren was asked about this later. Here’s how she responded:
2020: Asked why she didn’t clear up misinformation from the protester in NH who claimed @ewarren supports ISIS/terrorists, Warren tells reporters “I think getting into a shouting match with a man who’s so clearly disturbed is not helpful to him, and not helpful to anyone.” #FITN pic.twitter.com/AjyKIKjxG0

Warren should not be surprised that this happened.
She has made her position clear this week and it is obvious that some people find it offensive.
