A loud baby screamed his head off at a Donald Trump rally in Virginia on August 2. There was also an infant in the audience. The GOP nominee kicked a mother and her child out of the audience at his event, making sure to humiliate her in the process. Click through to watch the insane moment!
Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, 70, ridiculed the mother of a crying child in the audience of his August 2 rally, throwing her to the wolves after pretending to be sympathetic. Trump singled the mother out during his Ashburn, Virginia speech, assuring her that her “beautiful” baby was just fine. Nothing to worry about here!
“Don’t worry about it. I love babies. I hear that baby crying, I like it,” Trump said. “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.”
Uncharacteristically nice for Trump, right? Well, if it seems too good to be true, it usually is. After about a minute of continuing on with his speech, Trump paused and berated the mom. He ordered her to get out of the rally with her crying baby, as the other attendees laughed and cheered.
“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.”

This was truly disgusting to watch. There was no reason for Trump to treat this woman in such a way, never mind doing so from the stage at his rally in front of hundreds of jeering people. She didn’t deserve this, especially from the person she wants to become her president.
Unsurprisingly, this wasn’t Trump’s only gaffe during that same speech. He was blasted from here to Sunday for accepting a veteran’s Purple Heart award onstage, and saying, “I always wanted to get the Purple Heart, this was much easier.” Just when you think he couldn’t get more tone deaf, this happens.
