Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton had a quick response on Thursday when an animal rights demonstration broke out during a campaign rally in Las Vegas.


Footage posted by ABC News shows the former secretary of state speaking to Secret Service agents as the protesters began chanting, before saying, "These people must be here to protest [Donald] Trump -- he and his kids have killed a lot of animals."

According to Talking Points Memo, the demonstrators were part of an organization called Direct Action Everywhere.

TPM also reported that Trump's sons, Eric and Donald Jr., are currently out of the US on a hunting trip. Eric Trump, in particular, was mocked by Full Frontal host Samantha Bee a day earlier in a series of tweets.
