While Senator Kamala Harris was speaking at MoveOn’s “Big Ideas Forum” on Saturday, an audience member rushed on stage and stole the microphone from the 2020 presidential candidate.
The California senator had finished presenting her newly unveiled pay equity plan and had begun taking questions from moderators when the man stormed the stage.
The audience erupted in shock, as the man was detained by security.
“Thank you so much, sir, for your big idea, but we want to make sure that we are able to get through this. It’s OK, folks. It’s OK. People have their own big ideas,” one of the hosts said.
Some in attendance began to chant, “Kamala,” before the lawmaker walked back on stage.
“You had a question and I want to answer it,” Harris said.
