In a video of the incident shared to social media by CBS News reporter Aaron Navarro, DeSantis can be seen speaking to a crowd of voters from a small stage.

Out of nowhere, an anonymous protester rushes up to the stage on DeSantis’ left side with a sign reading, “DeSantis: Climate Criminal.”

Within seconds a security guard charges from the opposite end of the stage, tackling the protester.

DeSantis awkwardly pauses for a moment before laughing and pointing at the downed protester, declaring, “This is [what’s] wrong with the college system right there. That’s exhibit A.”

Per The New York Post:

A climate protester was caught in a wild video being bum-rushed off stage and tackled to the ground as Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis spoke at a presidential campaign event in Iowa.

DeSantis was speaking to hundreds of people at a BBQ restaurant in Ames on Thursday evening when three activists apparently from the Sunrise Movement shouted at him and accused him of taking money from the fossil fuel industry.

“Excuse me, hold on. Excuse me, I’m doing this,” DeSantis snapped at the interruption. “I know you have an agenda. Stop!”

The GOP presidential candidate told the crowd that the protester wants people to “pay more for gas.”
