During a campaign event for Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) in Clive, Iowa on Friday, Rep. Rashida Tlaib  (D-MI) booed former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for her remarks about Sanders. Clinton previously said "nobody liked" the Vermont senator. 

"I don't remember if you guys remember last week someone by the name of Hillary Clinton said that we're not nobody –" moderator Dionna Langford was interrupted by a booing audience. "We're not going to boo. We're not going to be. We're classy here. We're classy."

"No, I'll boo. Boo!" Tlaib responded with a laugh. "You all know, I can't be quiet. No, we're going to boo. That's alright. The haters, the haters will shut up on Monday when we win."

"There we go. I was gonna say – a hater by the name of Hillary Clinton – we calling names out here," Langford corrected. "We taking shots."

Tlaib took to Twitter on Saturday to apologize for her actions the night before. According to the Michigan congresswoman, supporters "deserve better."

The Iowa Caucuses will take place on Monday, the first time people will flock to the polls to cast their votes for the Democratic candidate of their choosing. Instead of voting on a traditional paper or electronic ballot, caucus-goers stand in various parts of a room. Where they stand determines the candidate they're voting for.
