Instagram video of the incident posted by Schumer late Tuesday night was captioned with the message: "Jill Biden dominates. Jill Biden is a warrior."

A protester holding a sign that appeared to say "let dairy die" rushed the stage at Joe Biden's event after his string of victories Tuesday evening. The former vice president appeared to be caught off guard before his wife and campaign aide Symone SandersSymone SandersBiden campaign ratchets up courting of Black voters, specifically Black men The Hill's Morning Report - Sponsored by The Air Line Pilots Association - Trump, Biden renew push for Latino support Sunday shows - Trump team defends coronavirus response MORE were seen removing the demonstrator.

Sanders later joked on Twitter about the encounter, writing that she "broke a nail."

The protesters and another who rushed the stage at the same time were apparently affiliated with Direct Action Everywhere, a group opposed to commercial dairy farming.


“Biden’s ties to the dairy industry and indifference to the suffering of farmed animals — something he basically never talks about — flies in the face of everything he claims to stand for,” a spokesperson for the group said.

“We’re asking him to stand with animal rights advocates, environmental activists, and ordinary citizens — and against the inherent violence of the dairy industry.”
