A Code Pink protester crashed Donald Trump‘s RNC nomination acceptance speech and immediately the Quicken Loans arena was flooded with boos as they were being dragged out.
People on the scene tweeted out what they witnessed:
The man next to the anti Trump protester, who was two rows in front of me, violently grabbed her sign away from her. He wasn't removed.

Code Pink activist interrupts Trump, screaming that he's a "racist." Police forcefully remove her. Delegates block TV cameras with signs.

Trump stopped talking as they dragged the protester, believed to be Code Pink’s Madea Benjamin, out of the arena.
Trump then cried, “How great are our police? And how great is Cleveland?!”
