[Ed. – Harris seemed frightened, but if you’re going to promote far-left ideas, you have to expect the occasional kook to turn up at one of your events.]

A protester stormed the stage during a Kamala Harris question-and-answer session, grabbing the microphone from her and began ranting about how he wanted to ask her a more important question.

Several tense moments transpired before a man shuffled the protester off the stage.

The protester, Aidan Cook, 24, is a part of an animal rights group, called Direct Action Everywhere. That group said in a statement: that Cook wanted to call on Harris “to support ordinary citizens rescuing animals rather than the factory farms that abuse animals.”

A reporter for the Guardian, Lois Beckett, said she asked the man afterward about the “optics of literally taking the microphone away from women of color.”

“I did,” he replied. “I tried to show my profound respect for the people on stage.”
