Protesters shouting about the Keystone XL pipeline interrupted President Barack Obama's speech on health care in Massachusetts on Wednesday.

Obama brushed the protesters off with a quick joke about their timing.

"This is the wrong rally!" Obama said as the protesters were escorted out. "We had the climate change rally back in the summer."

Watch a video of the incident above.

UPDATE -- 4:37 p.m.: Sophie Robinson and Shea Riester were named as the protesters in a release from 350.org.

"Mr. President, Reject Keystone XL! Stop Climate Change! For our generation, Stop the pipeline!” the two shouted during Obama's speech.
