Protestors Heckle Howard Schultz: 'Don't Help Elect Trump'

Protestors interrupted former Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz several times Monday during the first stop of his national book tour at a Barnes & Noble book store in New York City, according to the New York Post.

Schultz was discussing his comments on CBS’ “60 Minutes” teasing a possible 2020 presidential run as an independent when hecklers interrupted him.

“What I said last night is that I’m seriously considering running for president as a centrist independent, and I wanted to clarify the word independent, which I view merely as a designation on the ballot,” Schultz told the crowd.

“Don’t help elect Trump, you egotistical billionaire a**hole,” shouted a heckler, who was quickly escorted from the room. “Go back to getting ratioed on Twitter. Go back to Davos with the other billionaire elite, who think they know how to run the world.”

Another heckler interrupted Schultz when he started discussing healthcare-for-all and said it would bankrupt the country.

"Healthcare is a human right, healthcare is a human right," the second demonstrator shouted.

Schultz, a former Democrat, has already started the groundwork required to be on the ballot in all 50 states, but will formally decide whether to enter the race following his book tour over the next three months.
