An interview with former Secretary of State Colin Powell on "CBS This Morning" was disrupted Monday by a protester.
The man could be heard shouting, "You know better, Colin Powell," before he then continued with an inaudible outburst, although he never appeared on camera.
When the interviewers apologized for the disturbance, Powell said that this is the beauty of the United States, that someone is free to protest.
Powell was being interviewed in Washington D.C. about the importance and significance to the country of the National Museum of African American History, which opens later this month.
Powell was also asked who he endorses in the presidential election, but said he wanted to wait until the debates to decide which candidate he was going to support.
The former secretary of state was recently in the news when Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton said it was Powell who advised her to use a personal email.
Powell told People Magazine in August that although he did have a personal email for non-classified documents, he never used a personal server and that Clinton's statement was an attempt to pin her email problems on him.
