Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump may own the record of kicking out more people from his events than any presidential candidate in U.S. History.
Since his campaign began last June, Trump has had protesters removed on a regular basis. In the past, Trump has expelled reporters from his events , as well as protesters who were black, white, and Hispanic. But now Trump has upped his game.
Trump ejected a crying infant.
The incident took place on Tuesday at a rally in Virginia. When Trump first addressed the mother of the crying child, he was surprisingly charming and friendly, telling her:
“I love babies. I hear that baby crying. I like it.”
After telling the mother not to worry about it, Trump changed his mind a minute later.
“Actually, I was only kidding, you can get the baby out of here,” Trump said.
“I think she really believed me that I love having a baby crying while I’m speaking,” Trump added incredulously. “That’s ok, people don’t understand.”
Another incident involved a young child shouting “take the bitch down” after Trump mentioned Hillary Clinton’s name.
A little kid is yelling "Take the bitch down!" when Trump mentions Hillary Clinton. A little kid. No more than 10, I would say.

If someone’s looking for a politician who knows how to handle difficult babies, they would have to look no further than President Obama.
See the difference? Instead of retreating or kicking the mother and her baby out of the event, the president took the baby in his arms and soothed her. Because that is what a leader does, he (or she) fixes the problem.
What this incident teaches us is that when it comes to loud, annoying crybabies at Trump rallies, there can be only one.
