With non-stop violent rhetoric coming from Presidential hopeful Donald Trump during his rallies, and peaceful protesters getting punched and assaulted, it was only a matter of time before ish escalated. This weekend in Chicago and Kansas City, Anti-Trump protesters were on a mission to shut it all down…

Before Trump rolled into KC Saturday, Protestors and supporters faced off outside the Midland theater.

Unfortunately, it ended with folks getting pepper sprayed by cops and scuffles breaking out. It’s unclear who started it each time, but it’s more than clear the Trump himself is at the root of the anger.

We applaud the protesters for taking a stand

Here’s first hand accounts of what went down in KC before Trump took the stage:

No. We did not ask him to cancel.

Protestors got pepper sprayed by police. Some eyewitnesses claim it was because they linked up arms and refused to let the cops on horses break them apart.

Friday night in Chicago, the rally was cancelled after thousands of protesters showed up and made their presence known — inside and outside.

Four people were after that rally with charges ranging from aggravated battery to resisting arrest. Trump’s response?

MSNBC asked about the images of people clashing at the rally and Donald said, “Honestly, we have a very divided country.”

Meaning what exactly? He went on to say 59% of African-American youth are without jobs and that’s why they are mad. Bruh.

Trump even told CNN that “the attacks on his supporters were planned.” Oh? Interestingly, he’s not calling the MANY attacks BY his supporters “planned” when they punched and assaulted people who simply stood silently at his previous rallies in protest.

Rachel Maddow called the Presidential hopeful out for his rhetoric causing all this chaos. And she’s got receipts. Start at the 3:30 mark:
