A white supporter of Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump kicked a black protester at a Trump rally in Ohio today, and it was caught by MSNBC on film, though the network didn’t realize they captured the moment.
In the video below, you’ll see a young black man, in a backwards baseball cap, being escorted out of a Trump rally in Ohio this morning.
As the protester is being walked out, you’ll see on the far left a white woman in a dark blue baseball cap, light blue shirt, long brown ponytail, stick her foot out and kick or trip the protester, who immediately turns and (understandably) says something to her.
Here’s the woman to keep an eye out for:
Here’s the video clip:
At the same rally in Ohio today, Trump told the crowd: “It’s payback time!”

This is only the latest violence inspired by Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump. And it comes on the heels of a number of fights that broke out at Trump’s rally in Chicago last night, that was canceled by Trump at the last minute.
Meanwhile, the other lead GOP presidential candidates, Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz, vaguely criticized Trump and his climate of violence this morning, while still refusing to repudiate their pledge to support Trump as the party’s candidate in the fall.
At some point, the Republican party is going to need to come to terms with the monster it created.
