There was a moment at Donald Trump’s rally outside of northern Virginia that had Trump going up against a crying baby. Trump turned into an old-school Baptist preacher of sorts, when Trump ordered the crying baby out of his rally, as if the infant were interrupting his Sunday sermon. At first “The Donald” called the crying baby young and beautiful and healthy. Trump joked about the mother running around trying to calm the crying baby down — with Donald saying that the crying baby didn’t bother him.
As reported by Politico, Trump initially bragged about his love of babies.
“Don’t worry about that baby. I love babies. Don’t worry about it. I love babies. I hear that baby crying, I like it. 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.”
As seen in the below video, Trump eventually changed his tune. Donald ordered the crying baby to leave his rally — and quipped about not loving having a crying baby interrupting his speech.
“Actually I was only kidding. You can get the baby out of here. I think she really believed me that I loved having a baby crying while I’m speaking.”
Between the crying baby banishment + swearing kid sounds like this Trump rally is basically a Dem attack ad w/t the disclosure at the end— Jackie Kucinich (@JFKucinich) August 2, 2016
Jackie Kucinich, a political analyst for CNN, spoke about women not reacting well to Trump’s command to get the baby out of there. Jackie also re-tweeted a report that a child of approximately 10 years of age yelled something inappropriate in regard to Hillary Clinton at the rally.
Warning: The following video contains language that might be offensive to some viewers:
According to the New York Daily News, Trump ordered the crying baby to be removed from Trump’s rally on Tuesday in Ashburn, Virginia.
As seen in the top photo above, the Republican presidential candidate who is Trump is no stranger to crying babies. The photo of Trump holding the two babies, with at least one of the babies bawling, has made the rounds on social media. It even inspired a hoax that claimed Trump had bitten one or both babies as Trump worked the rope line during the campaign rally. It was a hoax that was quickly debunked by sites like Lead Stories. That photo of the crying baby was taken on Friday, July 29, in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
Meanwhile, the below YouTube video of Trump talking about receiving a Purple Heart is also gaining views. Donald said he asked the man — Lt. Colonel Louis Dorfman — if it was a real Purple Heart. As reported by Uproxx, the crowd chanted “U.S.A.” as Trump brought the veteran onstage. Trump said he asked Lt. Dorfman if he’d like to say anything. Dorfman said he didn’t want to say anything, but wanted Trump to keep saying the things he’d been saying.
Besides gaining buzz for his video showing Donald kicking out a crying baby from his rally, Trump is making news for being banned from Celebrity Apprentice, according to EW. Robert Greenblatt, head of NBC entertainment, said Trump won’t be allowed back if he loses the presidential election.
“No. He would never be back on Celebrity Apprentice, as long as I’m here.”
Meanwhile, reaction to Trump kicking out a crying baby from his rally is getting a big reaction on social media. Some of those responses can be read below. Some theorize that Trump’s slipping poll numbers might be getting to him.
“I was about to make a joke about how @realDonaldTrump would pick his next fight with a baby. I predict a puppy next.”
“I get the feeling that if Trump punched a baby tomorrow some people would defend it. ‘It’s about time we returned to our baby-punching ways.'”
