Donald Trump Says He Loves Babies Moments Before Booting One From Rally

"Actually, I was only kidding, you can get the baby out of here," the GOP nominee said.

Last week’s photo op disaster illustrated that some babies aren’t terribly fond of Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump.

Turns out he doesn’t like them much, either.

When a baby started crying at a rally in Ashburn, Virginia, Trump talked a big game about his love for infant humans.

“Don’t worry about that baby, I love babies,” he said, according to CBS reporter Sopan Deb. “I love babies. I hear that baby crying, I like it.”

The statement was already a little suspicious, since even the biggest baby fanatics don’t usually enjoy hearing them cry.

And sure enough, it was mere moments before Trump reversed his stance altogether, booting the mother and child from the rally.

“Actually, I was only kidding, you can get the baby out of here,” he said. After the mother appeared to be gone, he told the crowd, “I think she really believed me that I love having a baby crying while I’m speaking.”

It really makes you wonder how Trump actually feels about all the other groups of people he claims to love.

Editor’s note: Donald Trump regularly incites political violence and is a serial liarrampant xenophoberacistmisogynist and birther who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims ― 1.6 billion members of an entire religion ― from entering the U.S.
