Vice President Biden shuts down heckler

Vice President Joe Biden showed restraint when a protestor interrupted him during a rally for Hillary Clinton.

- While Vice President Joe Biden was criss-crossing Ohio on Thursday campaigning for presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton, he took on a heckler.

Biden got into a back-and-forth with the man in Cleveland who claimed to be a war veteran. The man interrupted Biden who was blasting GOP candidate Donald Trump and U.S. policy in Iraq, three times, yelling that his "friends died."

"Trump has not the slightest clue. None. He may be a great guy, he may be... but he has no idea what's made America," said Biden.

The heckler then interrupted the vice president and the crowd started to chant "Hillary" in an  attempt to drawn him out.

"No, no, it's alright. It's alright. It's alright. It's alright. It's alright," responded Biden.

Before the man was escorted out, he interrupted Biden again and the VP took the high road.

"Well, by the way, um... I'll tell you what, by the way, if you're serious... will you listen, so did my son, okay? So look. Let me ask you as question... come back after and talk to me about this. Okay. You have my permission," said Biden.

The man was seen talking with Secret Service agents after the event.

But according to, he was still waiting to speak to the vice president.

“At first they toyed with the idea of my meeting Biden, but in the end I was told that he didn’t have time for me,” said the man identified as Reinas. “So I offered my phone number, so that Joe Biden could contact me. I’m still waiting.”
