WATCH: Clinton Laughs As Man Tells Her He’d Like To ‘Strangle’ Carly Fiorina

Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton responded with laughter on Tuesday when a man at an event in New Hampshire told her he’d like to “strangle” the only other woman in the race, Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina.

A brief video posted to YouTube on Tuesday showed the exchange.

The man in the audience at the Truman National Security Project event told Clinton he was an assistant engineer who was laid off by Fiorina when she was chief executive of Hewlett-Packard.

He went on to say: “Every time I see her on TV, I want to reach through and strangle her.”

Clinton laughed.

“I know that doesn’t sound very nice,” he continued.

“I wouldn’t mess with you,” Clinton said.

The man said that he knew Fiorina was lying because “her lips are moving.”

“Yeah, well, unfortunately, that’s the political season we’re in,” Clinton responded, in a clip of the exchange posted online.

The video doesn’t show Clinton’s full answer.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
