“Whoa, you do not screw round with a Philly lady, I will let you know what,” he mentioned.
“I believed I heard on the information on the best way over that that the committee in control of Secret Service determined they’ve to start out offering Secret Service for us.
“I believe that”s as a result of they’re afraid Jill’s going to harm somebody. I let you know what man, I married approach above my station,” Biden joked.
As Biden was giving a speech in Los Angeles following his Tremendous Tuesday wins, a feminine vegan protestor shouting “Let dairy die” rushed the stage and Jill grabbed her husband’s hand and put herself between him and the lady.
Seconds later one other vegan protestor rushed the stage and the previous second girl grabbed her with each arms and pushed her again.
The protestor was escorted from the stage to boos from Biden supporters.
“We’re OK,” mentioned Jill.
