A speaker at a rally for Hillary Clinton went rogue during his speech in Iowa on Saturday, blasting the Democratic nominee with reckless abandon.
Kaleb Vanfosson, Iowa State University sophomore and president of the school’s Young Democratic Socialists student group, started by mocking Republican Donald Trump, calling him a “part-time reality TV star and full-time bigot.” He got some laughs for that line.
But then he unexpectedly set his sights on Clinton. Vanfosson claimed Clinton nor Trump really care about the student loan debt crisis.
“Unfortunately, Hillary doesn’t really care about this issue either. The only thing she cares about is pleasing her donors, the billionaires that fund her election,” Vanfosson said. “The only people who can really trust Hillary are Goldman Sachs, Citigroup … the military industrial complex can trust Hillary, her good friend Henry Kissinger can trust Hillary.”
He even got some applause from the crowd.
At this point, apparent organizers of the event were buzzing, likely trying to determine how to best handle the anti-Clinton speaker at a rally supporting her.
“She is so trapped in the world of the elite that she has completely lost grip of what it’s like to be an average person. She doesn’t care. Voting for the lesser of two evils — there’s not point,” Vanfosson continued.
Finally, an official confronted him and escorted him off the stage. But at that point, the damage was done.
