Two Arrested at Trump Rally in KC

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — As protesters made their mark at his latest rally, Donald Trump seemed to relish the interruptions. In Kansas City, Missouri, he repeatedly ridiculed them, calling them people with a "little weak voice" and saying "go home to mommy." Even while stirring up his boisterous supporters, he asked security to be "very gentle" when taking the protesters out. By about 20 minutes into his remarks, more than a dozen demonstrators were escorted out, offering little resistance. Police say they used pepper spray twice outside the Kansas City rally and two people were arrested for refusing to follow the law. In a Twitter post late yesterday (SAT), Kansas City police did not say if the use of pepper spray was on demonstrators or Trump supporters. Television images showed one protester rubbing his eyes and saying that he had been sprayed. While a boisterous group of protesters gathered outside the theater where Trump spoke in downtown Kansas City, the event concluded without significant incident. Police say the majority of people exercised their rights to gather peacefully.
