Donald Trump Lashes Out at a Crying Baby

“You can get the baby out of here.”


Donald Trump doesn’t humor any interruptions during his speeches—even if those outbursts are coming from an infant. During a rally Tuesday in Northern Virginia’s Loudoun County, a baby in the audience started to cry. At first, Trump played the role of common-man politician, saying, “I love babies. I hear that baby crying. I like it.” But as the dissatisfied infant kept making noise during Trump’s attacks on China, the real estate mogul changed his mind. “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 okay, people don’t understand.”

The baby wasn’t the only child making noise at Trump’s event. As several reporters at the event noted on Twitter, a young boy in the crowd shouted a colorful anti-Clinton message.

MORE HARD-HITTING JOURNALISM

In 2014, before Donald Trump announced his run for president, we knew we had to do something different to address the fundamental challenge facing journalism: how hard-hitting reporting that can hold the powerful accountable can survive as the bottom falls out of the news business.

Being a nonprofit, we started planning The Moment for Mother Jones, a special campaign to raise $25 million for key investments to make Mother Jones the strongest watchdog it can be. Five years later, readers have stepped up and contributed an astonishing $23 million in gifts and future pledges. This is an incredible statement from the Mother Jones community in the face of huge threats—both economic and political—against the free press.

Read more about The Moment and see what we've been able to accomplish thanks to readers' incredible generosity so far, and please join them today. Your gift will be matched dollar for dollar, up to $500,000 total, during this critical moment for journalism.
