Foul-mouthed child at Trump rally uses misogynistic profanity to assail Clinton

By WITW Staff on August 2, 2016

According to reporters covering a Donald Trump rally in Virginia on Tuesday, a school-aged child used a jarring profanity to denounce Hillary Clinton when the Republican nominee for president mentioned her name. “Take that bitch down!” the boy, who reporters said looked to be about 10 years old, screamed repeatedly as he sat next to his mother.

In “Democratic schools,” Kohler told reporters, before clamming up and refusing to give them the name of her son. “He’s a minor so he can’t be interviewed.” Watch a short video clip of the incident:

Hmmm, we think it’s possible the young lad learned such misogynist turns of phrase elsewhere, perhaps from all of the bitch-themed paraphernalia being peddled at Trump events. Or maybe even at home.

Meanwhile, the foul-mouthed boy wasn’t the only youngster causing a ruckus at the rally. An infant could be heard crying as Trump delivered his remarks. Not surprisingly, Trump asked the baby’s mother to leave the room. Here’s video of the exchange.
