Normally politicians are all about kissing babies at rallies but not Donald Trump – he’s all about kicking them out.

While meeting voters on Tuesday in Ashburn, Virginia the Republican candidate asked a mother to remove her crying baby from the room.

The infant began to wail as the 70-year-old began to give a speech.

Initially Trump said he “loved babies” and he seemed to let on that he enjoyed the crying, but his tune soon changed.

“Don’t worry about that baby. I love babies,” Trump said.

“I hear that baby crying, I like it. What a baby, what a beautiful baby. Don’t worry, don’t worry.”

But then Trump wanted the baby gone.

“Actually, I was only kidding,” he said. “You can get the baby out of here.”

“Don’t worry, I think she really believed me that I love having a baby crying while I’m speaking,” he added with a smirk to the crowd. “That’s O.K. People don’t understand. That’s O.K.”

But it wasn’t just noisy babies getting under the Donald’s tanned skin. The New York Times reports that silent protesters were also escorted out by staff members midway through Trump’s speech.

“…and they went silently, with peace signs over their heads,” wrote the Times.
