Donald Trump kicked a mother & her crying baby out of his rally, and fellow moms — as well as pretty much everyone else — are NOT having it. Completely outraged and disgusted, People have taken to Twitter, totally bashing Trump and calling him out for being a ‘baby hater.’ See the passionate tweets here!
Once again, people are NOT happy with Donald Trump, 70. And rightfully so! The presidential nominee actually threw a precious baby and its mother out of his Aug. 2 rally after the child couldn’t stop crying. But before he rudely told the poor mom to leave, he also ridiculed her in front of the entire crowd! Pretty disgusting, right? And social media users across the country agree!
People are not playing nice when it comes to Trump and this baby issue — some even using the hashtag BabyGate! And while some tweets are comical, many are downright harsh. And we don’t blame these Twitter goers! I mean, come on Trump, a baby? Really? Here’s what people across the Internet have to say:
Do you think Donald Trump kicked the baby out because the screaming baby was making more sense than him?

Ouch! But while these tweets may hurt, nothing even compares to the embarrassment Donald put the mother with the crying baby through. “Don’t worry about it. I love babies. I hear that baby crying, I like it,” Trump initially said when he heard the baby cry. “What a baby. What a beautiful baby. Don’t worry, don’t worry. The mom’s running around like — don’t worry about it, you know. It’s young and beautiful and healthy and that’s what we want.”
But shortly after he made that statement, he did a complete 180! “Actually, I was only kidding, you can get the baby out of here,” Trump said, smiling. “That’s all right. Don’t worry. I, I think she really believed me that I love having a baby crying while I’m speaking. That’s okay. People don’t understand. That’s okay.” Then he ordered the mom to leave while the rest of the crowed laughed and cheered. So sad.
