ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) " Anti-war protesters briefly interrupted John McCain’s acceptance speech Thursday night at the Republican National Convention.
One male protester and two female protesters wearing the traditional CodePink colors were removed from the hall by security officers.
The male demonstrator had a sign that read “You can’t win an occupation” on one side, and “McCain votes against vets” on the other side.
The crowd tried to drown them out with chants of, “USA, USA.”
“My friends, my dear friends … please, please don’t be diverted by the crowd noise and the static,” McCain said.
“I’m going to talk about it some more, but Americans want us to stop yelling at each other.”
