Donald Trump Tells Mother To “Get The Baby Outta Here”

If there’s no place for mothers and babies in Donald Trump’s rallies, what kind of place would there be in Donald Trump’s America?
Donald Trump doesn’t respect women — he has called pregnant women an “inconvenience,” called a woman who had to leave a meeting to pump milk for her newborn “disgusting,” and today, in Virginia, Trump kicked a mother and her baby out of his rally because he does not “love having a baby crying” while he’s speaking.
Trump doesn’t seem to understand or care about mothers and their children, which is another reason why a Trump presidency would be a disaster for America’s families.
The GOP nominee initially suggested that he did not mind the disruption.
“Don’t worry about that baby. I love babies," Trump said after hearing the baby crying during an aside about the trade imbalance. "Don’t worry about it. I love babies. I hear that baby crying, I like it.” ...
Trump then returned to his non-baby-related remarks, only to hear the baby make more noise. ...
“Actually, I was only kidding, you can get the baby out of here," the Republican nominee said to laughter and applause. "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."
