    President Barack Obama speaks at a campaign event for Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton at the White Oak Amphitheatre in Greensboro, North Carolina, Tuesday, Oct. 11, 2016. He was interrupted by anti-Clinton protesters.

    President Barack Obama was interrupted during a rally for Hillary Clinton by hecklers alleging that Bill Clinton is a rapist, NBC News reported.

    Pro-Donald Trump radio host and conspiracy theorist Alex Jones offered cash rewards to anyone who carried out the stunt, $1000 for wearing a “Bill Clinton is a rapist” t-shirt on television or $5000 for being heard yelling the slogan, while wearing the t-shirt.

    Jones, the founder of the Infowars website, has also said on his radio show that Obama and Hillary Clinton are demons who smell like sulfur. A Clinton campaign spokesperson said that the interruptions on Tuesday were organized by Jones and Infowars.

    Obama seemed unfazed by the hecklers and joked, “these folks are auditioning for a reality show,” as they were escorted out of the rally.
