Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton descended into an unhinged screaming match with a heckler who called out Joe Biden’s “idiotic” war-mongering after calls to bundle aid to Israel, Ukraine, and Taiwan.
The incident occurred at Columbia University Monday afternoon at an event titled “Making Human Rights Come Alive: The UDHR at 75.”

"Sit down! We've heard your opinion!"
While Hillary Clinton did not shy away from the confrontation with the heckler, she still refused to “denounce the president openly war mongering, suicidal, any idiotic speech.”
Clinton repeatedly asked the heckler to cease and desist, asking him to “sit down,” but the skirmish began escalating more.
“Joe Biden is calling for a $100 billion dollars of funding for Israel, Taiwan, and Ukraine, and were going to bundle these together and rush to WW3?’ The heckler said.
After being interrupted by Clinton and other members, the heckler continued:
“This is free speech! Everyone has everything.”
“That is not free speech. This is people constructing narratives that are openly hypocritical. I’m sorry,” he replied.
Clinton then insisted the heckler be removed from the auditorium.
Last week, Joe Biden attempted to rally Americans to support the wars in Israel and Ukraine during a speech on Thursday as he prepares to request a further $100 billion in aid for the beleaguered nations.
During his speech, Biden claimed the two foreign wars threatened to undermine democracy and put US national security at risk.
Biden also brought Russian President Vladimir Putin into the fray, comparing him to the terrorist organization Hamas.
The president claimed both Hamas and Putin want to “completely annihilate a neighboring democracy.”
“History has taught us when terrorists don’t pay a price for their terror, when dictators don’t pay a price for their aggression, they cause more chaos and death and more destruction,” Mr. Biden said.
“They keep going and the cost and threats the American people keep rising.”
