Bill Clinton Bravely Fights For The Rights Of Presidential Spouses

At a rally with Katy Perry before the Jefferson-Jackson dinner in Iowa, Bill Clinton warmed up the crowd.

In his first stump speech of the 2016 election season, President Bill Clinton told the audience, "I am tired of the stranglehold women have on being the Presidential spouse." That applause line was one of the most popular of his speech.

While he was speaking, he was interrupted by a heckler as well. He handled him with grace, congratulating the man for being for something instead of against everything. He encouraged the audience to applaud him before security guards led him away without further incident.

We will try and bring you some clips from the Jefferson-Jackson dinner later tonight, where Martin O'Malley, Bernie Sanders, and Hillary Clinton will all be speaking to Iowa Democrats.
