HOPKINSVILLE, Ky. (AP) – Hillary Clinton says it’s “time people stopped listening to Republican propaganda.”

The remark was pushback from the likely Democratic presidential nominee against a vocal critic during a rally in Hopkinsville, Kentucky, on Monday. Clinton was praising the record of former Gov. Steven Beshear, a Democrat, noting education and employment gains, as well as his expansion of Medicaid under President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul. Clinton then said that Republican Gov. Matt Bevin is “trying to undo it all.”

A woman then stood up and yelled, “Wait a minute, that’s not true.”

“Oh yes it is, ma’am,” Clinton shot back, amid cheers. “You are entitled to your opinion, but you’re not entitled to your own facts.”

Clinton continued that because of Medicaid, “hundreds of thousands of working Kentuckians have health care.”
