Trump has crying baby kicked out of Virginia rally

ASHBURN, Virginia — Donald Trump, trying to reassure a distressed mother with a crying baby, said Tuesday that he loves hearing babies cry at his rallies and told her not to worry — only to change his mind just a moment later.

“I love babies. I hear that baby cry, I like it,” Trump said at a campaign event here as a baby could be heard crying in the audience. “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 less than two minutes later, as the baby continued to wail, Trump took back his words.

“Actually I was only kidding, you can get the baby out of here,” he said to laughs. “I think she really believed me that I love having a baby crying while I’m speaking. That’s OK. People don’t understand. That’s OK.”

    I’d be more apt to blame the mother rather than Trump. The others at the rally came to listen to the candidate speak, not the baby’s wailing. As a matter of courtesy she should have removed herself and the baby. Maybe in the future Trump should request “cry rooms” like those they have in church. Then everybody’s happy except mainstream media. One less way to portray Trump as a heartless child hater..
