FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. – President Barack Obama rebuked a crowd of Hillary Clinton supporters Friday after they shouted down a man holding a Donald Trump sign.

Obama was addressing a get-out-the-vote rally for Clinton here when the man, wearing a military uniform and hat, stood up in the bleachers and prompted the response from supporters of the Democratic nominee.

“Hold up! Hold up! Hold up! Hold up!” Obama shouted over and over as the supporters drowned out his calls for order.

“Everybody! Hey!” Obama yelled. “I told you to be focused and you’re not focused right now.”

The episode lasted for more than a minute before the Trump supporter was escorted from the venue.
