Secret Service agents rushed to Hillary Clinton’s side Thursday as animal rights protesters got too close for comfort at a Vegas rally, but not before she took a jab at her Republican rival and his family.
Clinton told the concerned crowd that the protestors must be campaigning against Trump because “Trump and his kids have killed a lot of animals.”
The Democratic presidential nominee was referring to a photo of Trump’s eldest sons — Donald Jr. and Eric — hunting big game in Africa several years ago.
Clinton is also celebrating a growing lead over Trump in national polls.
She now has a 15-point lead over Trump in a new McClatchy-Marist poll. Clinton leads 48 percent to Trump’s 33 percent.
