As the race for the White House heats up, so are tensions among voters who want questions answered by presidential candidates.  

While former president, Bill Clinton, was campaigning for Hillary Clinton in Bluffton, South Carolina, a former Marine interrupted his speech. 

The veteran asked him to address what Hillary was going to do about Veteran’s Affairs.

But instead, Clinton turned the question back on him: ‘What do you think should be done with the VA?’

‘The thing is, we lost four lives in Benghazi killed and your wife tried to cover it up,’ the Marine responded, drawing boos and jeers from the crowd.

As the man continued to talk, audience members yelled at him to sit down. ‘Are you going to let me answer?’ Clinton asked.

‘This is America. I get to answer,’ he said. ‘You listen to me. I heard you,’ Clinton snapped as the man turned around and began addressing the crowd.

‘I heard your speech. They heard your speech. You listen to me now,’ Clinton said, his voice cracking.

‘Am I allowed to answer? I’m not your commander in chief anymore but if I were, I’d tell you to be more polite and sit down.’

‘I wouldn’t listen!’ the man shouted in return.

‘Do you have the courage to listen to my answer? Don’t throw him out. Shut up and listen to my answer. I’ll answer it,’ Clinton said as the man was pushed out of the gymnasium by sheriff’s deputies.

‘Can I just saying something? That’s what’s wrong: his mind has been poisoned by lies and he won’t listen,’ Clinton said.

A woman just jumped up and began shouting at the former president.

Clinton told the Marine to shut up and listen. He also told security not to throw the man out because he wanted him to hear his answer
As the Marine kept shouting, he drew jeers and boos from the crowd, so much that he was then escorted out by security

‘Hillary lied over four coffins,’ she said as a man near her yelled ‘Bullshit.’

‘She lied and she lied to those families. So all those families are liars?’ she said as Clinton tried to stop her and a Secret Service agent moved closer to the former president.

‘Did she lie?’ the woman said as Clinton responded, ‘Will you let me answer?’

‘No,’ he said. ‘Why are you afraid to listen to my answer?’ Clinton said.

‘Are you afraid?’ he asked her. ‘No I’m not afraid because I know you’re going to lie,’ she responded.

The video shows her then forcibly removed from the room.

Several Clinton supporters (pictured) yelled back at the Marine and the woman for making accusations that Hillary 'lied over four coffins'
