Protesters storming the stage at political events has sort of become a common theme in this insanely contentious and reviled presidential election. Emotions are higher than Snoop Dog on 420, and a certain orange candidate is all too willing to exploit them.
Earlier today, a protestor tried to the storm the stage as Hillary Clinton held a campaign rally in Des Moines at Lincoln High School Wednesday. But unlike Donald Trump, who cowered and jumped up and down like a little girl when a protestor stormed the stage at one his events, Hillary remained steely and unphased.
Watch the protestor storm the stage at a Hillary event below:

CNN identified the protester as Kelsey Atkinson from Direct Action Everywhere, an animal rights group. Direct Action Everywhere is the same animal rights group that had a protester interrupt Hillary at a rally a week ago. At that event, Hillary paused for a moment, then quipped that they should be protesting Donald Trump since “his kids have killed a lot of animals.” People on Twitter then mocked how she remained cool at that event, while Trump had blood coming out of his…wherever…when he was confronted by a protestor.
Direct Action Everywhere eventually put out a press release.
It should be noted that Hillary Clinton teamed up with her daughter Chelsea to help preserve the African elephant population with a generous $80 million effort. It has been a passion since her time as First Lady. So one truly has to wonder if these Direct Action Everywhere protesters know how to Google “Trump and animal rights”
