Obama expertly shut down a heckler at a Hillary Clinton rally

When a heckler tried to interrupt President Obama at a Hillary Clinton event in Ohio on Friday, he pulled out the perfect zinger to shut him down.

If you're confident about the other guy, just go to his rallies. I feel confident about my candidate, that's why I'm at this rally."

Instead, Obama suggested the protester spend his time knocking on some doors for "your guy." "That's a better way for you to spend your time — unless you're just being paid to be here," he said.
