Hillary Clinton with squirrel

Hillary Clinton encountered a giant squirrel in Washington Tuesday just before she participated in a CNN town hall.

The mascot was actually an intern with the Republican National Committee who was wearing a T-shirt that read: "Another Clinton in the White House is nuts."

Clinton got out of her car to shake hands with the squirrel, who has followed her to a number of events.

She also gave the squirrel a copy of her book, "Hard Choices."
