Just when you think Donald Trump’s campaign can’t get any more surreal, the mogul goes and ejects a crying infant from his rally.

ASHBURN, Virginia — At his rally in Northern Virginia today, Donald Trump found a new foe: a baby.

After a week spent attacking Gold Star parents, Ghazala and Khizr Khan; asking Russia to hack the United States; and saying Tuesday he “always wanted to get the Purple Heart,” the Republican presidential nominee ordered a screaming infant to be removed.

Even before his rally started, security escorted protesters out of the high school auditorium where the audience had assembled. And during his speech, a group of young Muslim students protesting against Trump turned their backs on him and were then removed.

But they weren’t the youngest people to be ejected. About 30 minutes into Trump’s characteristically rambling speech, a baby in the audience started crying noisily. And at first, Trump seemed pleased, even waxing poetic about the loveliness of childhood.

“Don’t worry about that baby,” he said. “I love babies. I love babies. I hear that baby crying and I like it. 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, OK.”

About a minute later, though, as the baby continued to caterwaul, Trump snapped out of his pro-baby reverie.

“Actually I was only kidding,” he said. “You can get the baby out of here. That’s all right. Don’t worry. I think she believed me that I love having a baby crying while I’m speaking. That’s OK. People don’t understand. That’s OK.”
Trump’s decision to boot the baby drew mixed responses from attendees. One young woman in the audience, 18-year-old Starbucks barista Christin Hensley, called Trump’s criticism of the mom “degrading.”
