The former president brushed off the comments by referencing the backlash the Trump campaign has faced since Friday, when audio recordings of the Republican presidential nominee making derogatory comments about a woman were released.

"You gotta feel sorry for them. They had a bad day yesterday, give them a hand," said Clinton.

The Clinton campaign was in Milwaukee on Saturday, to encourage early voting in Wisconsin. Clinton spoke at a hall inside an office for the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local Union 494.

"One campaign wants you to forget this is about you, your life and your future. Hillary is running because she wants you and your life and the future of your kids and grandkids to be better -- and we have to do that together," said Clinton.

Clinton stuck to the usual stump speech. Referencing Hillary's pledge to address climate change, criminal justice and immigration reform and building the economy.

"I think we are now in a position to rise together, to grow together, to lift incomes, to increase upward mobility, to reduce income inequality, but it is all hinging on this election," said Clinton.

Hillary supporters were pleased with Clinton's message.

"I hope everyone that's a member of a union or an IBEW goes out and votes for Hillary, because she's the only choice for us," said a Hillary supporter.

Others still shaken by the hecklers in the audience.

"I was actually a little scared because I was standing right next to him and was very angry but I think everyone has a right to their opinion," said Colleen Beaslee, Clinton supporter.

    If he really thinks she’s the right one for us, he’s delusional. She wasn’t even good enough for him, just ask Monica and all the others

    Hillary is one of the most disgusting individuals in politics and life. Has a rapist for a husband. Sells favors to anyone with the big money. Laughs at the probe of four Americans that died. Do you really think by being President that she will change? We live in a country that is more concerned with the newest phone over who runs the country.
