I can see the excuses already. Trump was kidding. Trump was joking. The problem is that no sane nominee would even joke about kicking a baby out of a rally.
A candidate who was an actual human being would have seized the moment to say something clever and cute about the crying baby. Think of how President Obama has reacted to similar situations in the past. A cute moment could have both humanized Trump, and gotten some of the negative media attention from the Khan family fiasco off of him, but Donald Trump doesn’t do kind and nice.
Instead, Trump showed that baby who was the boss. No baby will interrupt Donald Trump, who so strong that he will not tolerate crying children in his presence.
What has become obvious about Donald Trump is that he has a gift for saying/doing the wrong thing in every situation.
It is almost like Donald Trump is intentionally trying to lose the election.
