Pro-Palestinian protesters heckled President Joe Biden during a fundraiser Thursday night in New York City that included former Presidents Barack Obama and Bill Clinton.

During a discussion among the three, moderated by comedian Steve Colbert,  protesters began heckling by yelling “blood on your hands" and "You’re out of your f*** minds," according to The Hill. 

Biden acknowledged the protesters by saying, "There are too many innocent victims, Israeli and Palestinian. We’ve got to get more food and medicine supplies into the Palestinians.”

The president said that while Israel does have a right to be angry at Hamas, the group that attacked the county in October 2023, the death of Palestinians civilians has to end.

Protesters responded by shouting more, but were later drowned out by other attendees at the event yelling "four more years."

One of the protesters was escorted from the room. 

According to the Biden campaign, the New York City event raised over $26 million.
