Bill Clinton mocked the BlackLivesMatter movement Friday, deriding the activists for "just trying to get good television."

Clinton, speaking at a rally for his wife in Philadelphia, called out the protesters after they interrupted an event Thursday.

"I know that there were young people yesterday who were just trying to get good television," Clinton said. "And they did. But that doesn't mean that I was most effective in answering."
