While celebrating a string of Super Tuesday wins, democratic presidential hopeful Joe Biden was interrupted by protesters storming his stage in California, where he was delivering a victory speech after a resurgent night.

The protestors held up signs that said "Let Dairy Die," before they were heroically wrestled off the stage by Biden’s senior adviser Symone Sanders.

Talk about commitment to the job, right?

A video of the incident went viral on Twitter, with many people – including former presidential candidate Kamala Harris’s daughter Meena – praising the adviser’s heroism after she literally ran on to the stage to tackle the hecklers to the ground.

There was also a lot of love for Biden’s wife, Dr Jill Biden, who also put her body in the way of the Democratic frontrunner.

Look at this incredible photo of the moment it happened.

Jill Biden quickly became an internet hero.

Afterwards, Sanders hinted at the controversy on Twitter, saying that she "broke a nail".

Whatever your political views, we're sure you can agree Biden is lucky to have staff and a spouse so devoted to keeping him safe.
