At a rally for Hillary Clinton put on by Bernie Sanders at Iowa State University on Saturday a student was physically escorted off of the stage for blasting Hillary and her connection to big banks.
An outspoken student, Kaleb Vanfosson took the mic and at first everything seemed to be going well for Clinton, but about half way through he broke out into a scathing review of her connections to billionaire donors and how she is “trapped in the world of the elite” while not caring about the average person.
Hillary doesn’t really care about this issue either. The only thing she cares about is pleasing her donors, the billionaires who fund her election. The only people who really trust Hillary are Goldman Sachs, City Group can trust Hillary, the military industrial complex can trust Hillary, her good friend Henry Kissinger can trust Hillary [applause].
She is so trapped in the world of the elite that she has completely lost grips over what it’s like to be an average person. She doesn’t care.
The speaker is only able to continue for a few seconds longer before a Clinton staffer is seen moving in from backstage, grabbing the student’s arm and pushing him out of the room.
The story doesn’t end there, however, as Vanfosson reported to the student newspaper that he was assaulted by Clinton’s staff on the way out of the event.
“Vanfosson told the Iowa State Daily that while being escorted out he was ‘basically assaulted,’” Iowa State Daily’s Shannon McCarty wrote. “Vanfosson said he does have footage of the incident.”
Hillary Clinton has been struggling to gain support of millennials and college age voters, who overwhelmingly supported Bernie Sander’s during the primaries. It appears that she still isn’t doing too well in that department.
It shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone that Sander’s fans are resistant to supporting Hillary in any way whatsoever, as recent Wikileaks emails have revealed the Clinton campaign absolutely destroying him behind closed doors.

Millennials were a key support group for Obama during both of his campaigns, but it appears Clinton will have to make due without much support from this voting bloc, along with many others.
