Jill Biden, Symone Sanders Push Protesters Aside During Joe Biden's Super Tuesday Speech
Protesters briefly interrupted Joe Biden's Super Tuesday celebratory remarks to supporters in Los Angeles. Women holding signs reading "Let Dairy Die" stormed the podium where Biden was giving remarks Tuesday night, flanked by his wife and sister.
Biden moved to the side as Jill Biden, one of aides, Symone D. Sanders, and security pushed the protesters aside.
Sanders, the former vice president's campaign national press secretary, later tweeted that she had broken a nail during the altercation.
At this juncture, no primary candidates have been assigned Secret Service detail. Biden was previously under the agency's watch during his tenure as vice president and briefly after leaving office, per the Former Vice President Protection Act of 2008.
The act states that "former Vice Presidents, their spouses, and their children who are under 16 years of age, for a period of not more than six months after the date the former Vice President leaves office."
Protesters from the animal rights group have interrupted recent campaign events in Nevada and California. Topless women with "Let Dairy Die" written on their chests protested a Bernie Sanders campaign event earlier this month.
As soon as the women were removed, Biden resumed his remarks.
