Trump Supporter Shoves Protester, Puts Him in Headlock During Rally

Things turned nasty at Donald Trump‘s rally today as violence broke out when the mogul was interrupted by a protester.

As Trump went on a tirade about Hillary Clinton and the women who have accused him of sexual assault, a protester apparently held an American flag upside down in defiance of the mogul. As the crowd turned on the protester, one of Trump’s supporters rushed the man and appeared to assault him before security arrived and pulled the two of them apart.

As Trump’s crowd cheered the protester’s expulsion, Trump commented that it was disrespectful for him to hold the flag that way. Security eventually came for the man who attacked the protester, which prompted shouts of “let him stay” as he was taken out.

When CNN’s Jeremy Diamond asked the supporter why he hit the protester, the man denied it and said “I didn’t hit him.”

Watch above.
