With as much tact as could be mustered in such an awkward situation, GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump asked the mother of a crying baby to “get the baby out of here.”
… and the media went nuts.
After joking that he doesn’t mind a baby crying at a campaign rally Tuesday, telling the crowd how much he loves babies, the GOP nominee went on to gently tell the mother: “I was only kidding. You can get the baby out of here.”

@PPact your audacity is breathtaking. Much like how you cut out the lungs of babies and sell them.
