Donald Trump had another encounter with a heckler Wednesday night, sending a big crowd in Massachusetts into a frenzy when he had the heckler kicked out and then mocked him for being fat.
Trump was delivering a speech in Worcester, and mentioned that America now had over 50 million people on food stamps. At this point a heckler began chanting against Trump and was quickly dragged out of the building.
While crowd members chanted “We need Trump!” to drown out the heckler, Trump decided to poke fun at the man’s somewhat above-average weight.
“You know, it’s amazing, I mention food stamps and that guy who’s seriously overweight just starts going crazy,” he said, sending the crowd into a burst of laughter. Trump’s quip was captured by MSNBC and later uploaded to YouTube:
The heckler wasn’t even the first one Trump had faced that night. Early on in the speech, a sign-carrying heckler was hustled out after they began chanting against Trump’s plan to build a wall, and a few minutes later, another heckler began screaming “You’re a racist!” at Trump, while he was talking about the U.S. military.
“Isn’t a Trump rally much more exciting than these other guys?” Trump said after the second heckler was rushed out. After the third, he made a joke at the media’s expense, predicting they would focus on the wave of hecklers instead of his crowd of supporters.
“We had 12,000 people, and they’re gonna take three people and say ‘Oh, the protests were unbelievable,’” he said, then taking another chance to mock the third heckler’s weight. “Three people! They weren’t even in a group, cuz who the Hell wants to be with a guy like that, to be in a group? Seriously. Who wants to be with him? Nobody. Nobody. Nobody will have him. Nobody.”
