There was a bit of a moment at Secretary Clinton's Las Vegas rally today when animal rights protesters rushed the stage and Secret Service agents leapt to protect her.

After the agent told her they would handle things and she should continue, Secretary Clinton took the opportunity to give them a piece of advice.

Pointing to the protesters in front of her, Clinton said, "Apparently these people are here to protest Trump, because Trump and his kids have killed a lot of animals."

Why yes, yes they have.

She then thanked them for making the point and moved on with the rally.

Well played, Hillary Clinton. Well played.
