Former President Bill Clinton and his wife, Hillary Clinton, were booed at a Billy Joel concert Thursday night in New York City.
In a sold-out performance at Madison Square Garden, the legendary singer dedicated a song to the couple, whom he referred to as his “good friends.” The crowd then made its feelings known.
Mixed in with cheers and whoops were forceful boos, which only got louder as Bill Clinton’s face appeared on the Garden’s big screen.
Bill Clinton and Hillary Clinton, under fire
In recent years, the Clintons have been subjected to scrutiny from both within and outside the Democratic Party.
Hillary Clinton has been accused of failing to acknowledge that her own failings contributed to her defeat in the 2016 presidential election. A Gallup poll released in September found her favorability with Americans at an all-time low of 36 percent, well below that of the Republican who defeated her, President Donald Trump.
Meanwhile, Bill Clinton was forced to respond last week to news that Epstein had been accused of exploiting underage girls. The former president said through a spokesperson that he knew nothing of Epstein’s “terrible crimes,” proved or alleged.
Records obtained by Fox News in 2016 showed that Clinton took at least 26 trips aboard Epstein’s private jet, which the media has nicknamed the “Lolita Express.”
