Hillary Chickens Out – Jokes as Cops Carry Away Animal Rights Protester
Not with her.
Hillary Clinton was rushed by an animal rights protester during a campaign event in Iowa this week. The protester, who was a young woman, was taken down by Secret Service and carried out of the venue by police.
CBS News New York reports:

As you’ll see in the video below, Hillary turned this into a lame joke about people getting carried away.
ABC News has more details:
Hillary Clinton Surrounded by Secret Service at Rally After Protester Breaks Past Barricades
Hillary Clinton was surrounded by Secret Service agents Wednesday afternoon after a protester broke past barricades separating the Democratic nominee from the audience at a campaign stop in Des Moines, Iowa.
Agents tackled the protester, who wore a shirt that read “Animal liberation now” and is a member of the animal rights organization Direct Action Everywhere, in a buffer zone surrounding the stage.
The protester, identified afterward as Kelsey Atkinson of Chicago, was then led out of the gymnasium where the rally was held.
It was the second time in less than a week that Clinton’s security detail came to her aid. Last Thursday in Las Vegas, a group of protesters also from Direct Action Everywhere attempted to enter the area around the stage, prompting agents to move to her side.

One things for sure.
The woman protestor wouldn’t have much difficulty getting through the “crowd”, given it’s a Hillary rally in a high school gym.

This woman will be a hero next week, when the Dems realize they could have a huge pool of potential animal votes when voting rights have been granted along with ‘animal rights’.
Bruising! Bad optics.
Chicago? If 0bama had a daughter………
Gee, I wonder if this was arranged by Hillary’s campaign in advance, so she can say that it happened to her, too?
When will we have a Hillary supporter “attack the stage” wearing an AR-15 T-Shirt just so they can denigrate gun-totin’ republicans as the evil enemies?
They could get weeks of CNN-focused publicity out of such an event.
Don’t think they haven’t thought of it.
Seen the size of hateful hillery’s derriere? Maybe a vegan diet is what she needs to pander to that crowd.
If I have a nightmare tonight, my lawyer will be in touch.
Tell you what is stunning and that is the differences in the noise that is made by the crowds in HRC’s campaign events and the Donald’s campaign events.
The crowd in this video sounds exactly like a thin on the ground not many people there kind of crowd YET you listen to the Donald’s cried cheering and it’s completely different! His crowds SOUND like the kind if noise lots and lots and lots of people would make.
Where’s the big black dude with the injectable diazepam? Are they keeping him under wraps for awhile?
