Trump Gets Heckled, Immediately Slams the Media: ‘Dishonest’ to Give Hecklers Headlines (UPDATED)
Donald Trump got heckled during his rally in Richmond, Virginia tonight, and the YUGE crowd around him quickly drowned them out with wild applause.
It’s unclear what they were saying, but they started speaking up when Trump was talking about illegal immigration. As they continued, he told the crowd, “That’s why we have freedom of speech, folks.”
And then of course he slammed the media, saying, “I’ll tell you how dishonest the press is. We have thousands of people in this room… We have about ten people over there, they’ll get the headline, you won’t.”
[Ed. note: Because “There Were Thousands of People Tonight Who Did Not Heckle Donald Trump” would be a stupid headline.]
He tried to move on, but the heckling continued, and the crowd started chanting “We want Trump!” to drown them out as they were escorted out of the room.

UPDATE –– 10:20 pm EST: As CNN reported later in the evening, a physical altercation broke out between Trump supporters and the protesters.
