A student was escorted off stage at a campaign rally for Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton Saturday — despite the fact the campaign gave him a speaking slot — after he used the stage to denounce Clinton.
That student, Kaleb Vanfosson, president of Iowa State University’s Young Democratic Socialists club, began his short speech by ripping on Republican nominee Donald Trump and bringing attention to what he believes is a very important issue facing the nation: student loan debt.
Then, he went rogue. Vanfosson said of Clinton:
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. The only people who can really trust Hillary are Goldman Sachs. Citigroup can trust Hillary, the military industrial complex can trust Hillary, her good friend Henry Kissinger can trust Hillary.
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 another lesser of two evils — there’s no point.”
That’s all the student was able to say before event organizers stopped him and escorted him off the stage.
However, Vanfosson did get affirmation from the crowd. In a video of the incident, one crowd-goer can be heard saying “yep,” while a large portion of the crowd claps and cheers at another point.
Vanfosson also received an applause as he was being escorted off stage.
