8:38: Police reportedly use pepper spray outside of Trump’s rally:

8:31: “Arrest her,” Trump says of another protester. He says it has gotten relatively quiet since he threatened protesters with arrest.

8:27: Trump now talks about trade. He says he doesn’t mind free trade but he believes in smart trade where we come out on top.

8:25: Trump reading the lyrics to Al Wilson’s “The Snake.”

8:23: When someone yells something at Trump’s rally, Trump asks “are you with us or against us?” Trump says sometimes people shout things at his rallies and get mistaken for protesters. Trump concludes he must be with us.  Trump says he is going to start pressing charges against “all these people. And then we won’t have a problem.”

8:15: Trump tells the audience that the Dayton man who tried to rush the stage was “probably ISIS or ISIS related.” Trump says certainly “he’s not in love with our country. That I can tell you, folks.”

8:07: Trump says Obama is “incompetent” and “doesn’t know what the hell he’s doing” and doesn’t react well “under pressure.”

8:05: Trump asks “what do they do to these people? Do they arrest them?” Trump says protesters should be arrested because they are “violating all of us.” Trump says his supporters don’t invade rallies of liberal politicians. He says the protesters who are “very violent” deserve to be arrested and he’ll file whatever charges you want. Trump says “if they want to do this,” let “them have a big arrest mark” so their lives could be ruined. He says “we’re not going to have any more protesters” once that starts happening.

8:03: Anti-Trump protesters:

7:59: Trump says millions of people are going to polls because they are inspired by his message. He calls Sanders’s supporters a “little group that wants a free lunch.” He says Hillary has “zero inspiration.” He blasts “stiffs like Mitt Romney” who failed “so damn badly” to defeat Obama.

7:57: Trump tells the police to “try not to hurt the person.” Trump says he is a “non-violent person.” He points out all of the abuse the police are taking. Trump says we have to go back 15-20 years because what we are doing in this country is not working. He blasts the “organized nonsense.”

7:55: Trump says the protesters should be referred to as “disrupters.”

7:50: Trump: “We’re going to take our country back from those people,” Trump says. “These are bad, bad people.”

Trump says they are protesting because there has never been anything like his movement.

7:47: Trump makes a great point. If Trump supporters waving Trump signs disrupted Clinton/Sanders rallies, they would be all over the front page. Trump blasts the “dishonest” press. Trump asks, “anybody in a rush?” Crowd answers, “NO!”

7:42: Crowd boos the protesters as Trump says “get ’em out.” Trump says his people are great. “It’s these people that are the problem.” He says they must be “Bernie supporters” and he says “we love our police. They do such a great job.” Trump says the protesters are “so bad for our country… so, so bad.” Trump asks protesters with “Bernie” signs if they were “put in here by Bernie.” Trump supporters chanting “U-S-A!, U-S-A!” Trump says he wants to run against “our Communist friend” Bernie.

7:40: Trump says his rallies have a lot more energy because he doesn’t use TelePrompTers. He says you can talk about things that happened 25 minutes ago. He says he’ll give prepared speeches some day but he likes his current style better.

7:39: Trump says he is self-funding his campaign and unlike other candidates, his bosses will be the voters.

5:05: Mugshot of man who tried to rush the stage at Trump’s rally:

 

 

5:02: Where’s the pressure on Sanders from the mainstream media to control his supporters?

3:52: [Tony Lee: Just like Trump turned the phony “war on women” rhetoric on its head when he accused Hillary Clinton of enabling her husband’s abuse in a way that the GOP establishment never did (or never even tried because they lacked the intestinal fortitude and are so afraid of not being liked by their mainstream media/elite “bettors”), he is the only Republican candidate using the organized chaos in Chicago on Friday night to call out Clinton, Sanders, and left-wing activists/agitators who shut down a political rally in a way the truly peaceful Tea Party protesters never did. Republicans could have been unified in pointing out that conservative activists peacefully opposed Obama/Democrats while left-wing agitators who embody the “Salad Bowl” (instead of melting pot) America that so many Americans rightfully fear are engaging in mayhem and violence. They could have been unified in flipping the script. Instead, Messrs. Rubio, Kasich, and Cruz did what every establishment Republican does in times like this–self-loathingly blame your own. You’d expect that from Rubio and Kasich, but Cruz’s response–blaming Trump–showed that inside, he may actually be the political careerist who has many of the same ladder-climbing characteristics of Hillary Clinton.

Trump would not be the best GOP candidate to defeat other Democrats. But he is the perfect candidate to defeat Clinton because he, unlike more conventional Republican candidates whose voices/arguments the mainstream media try to mute, has the megaphone to call her out on issues like Benghazi and her email scandal and go around the mainstream media’s filters to get his criticisms of Clinton directly to the people. The Clinton/mainstream media machine would eat Cruz/Rubio alive. And their reactions to the Chicago chaos reinforced that even more.

Because of Trump, Americans who are watching biased mainstream media reports of the Chicago chaos will at least consider that left-wing agitators may be more to blame than Trump’s supporters who just came to see their candidate give a speech. And by challenging the mainstream media’s preferred narrative of “peaceful” left-wing agitators and “violent” conservative citizens, Trump has done much more good for the right than Kasich, Cruz, Rubio did this weekend.]

3:45: Joy Reid on MSNBC points out that Luther Campbell has said that some black voters in barbershops are saying they may vote for Trump because of his message on jobs. She also says there seems to be a lack of enthusiasm among black voters for Clinton/Sanders.

3:30: Huckabee blasts “thugs” who tried to disrupt Trump’s rally:

3:25: On MSNBC, Kevin Cate tells Joy Reid that some voters may just vote for Jeb Bush to spite Rubio on Tuesday. Seems to be a lot of bad blood still between the two camps.

Give Joy Reid, who knows Florida’s politics well, for asking Cate if the “first paragraph” in Rubio’s political obituary will be about “immigration” and his support of the Gang of Eight’s amnesty bill. You rarely hear people on CNN/Fox News pointing to immigration as the primary reason that Rubio’s campaign could not get out of the starting gate. Cate says many voters in Florida think Rubio used the Tea Party to get elected and “immediately abandoned” them once he got to Washington.

3:23: Trump praises “perfectly behaved crowd.”

3:02: Bernie Sanders calls Trump a “pathological liar” and is on the defensive, saying his campaign didn’t organize the anti-Trump protests. But left-wing agitators that have flocked to his campaign did. Would the media be giving Trump a pass if Trump supporters had stormed the stage at a Clinton or Sanders rally and spent weeks organizing to disrupt one of their rallies?

2:41: Trump says “Little Marco” and “Lyin’ Ted” aren’t turning out millions of new voters. He says voters in their eighties are telling him that they are voting for the first time to support his campaign.

2:37: After a “Bernie person” interrupts Trump’s speech, Trump says “get your people in line.” He blasts Clinton for not being able to defeat a “Communist” for her party’s nomination.

2:33: Trump supporters yelling at CNN:

2:29: Trump accuses the Club for Growth of extortion. He says they asked him for a million dollars and went on the attack when he didn’t donate. Trump says he is beholden to nobody. He also blasts Romney as a “little peanut” and says he has a store worth more than Romney.

2:21: Establishment Republican stalwart Rob Portman introducing Kasich at his rally:

2:15: Trump says Kasich has been an absentee governor who voted for NAFTA and was a managing director at Lehman Brothers when it failed.  He also blasts Kasich for his support of TPP. He says Kasich can’t be president because he’s “weak on immigration” and “in favor of amnesty.”

2:05: Trump says the protesters are going to galvanize more Republicans to go to the polls because they will become “more angry.” He says Americans are fed up with the stupidity in Washington, the stupidity of labor deals, the fact that they haven’t had wage increases in 12 years. He says we are losing our jobs and factories and they are going to Mexico, China.  [Finally, Trump is getting better with his stump speech and not talking as much about process. He blasts the GOP “elites” on trade–Trump could point out that what these elites want is a world with no borders to hammer home his campaign themes even more.]

1:55: In Cleveland, Trump asks, “do we love our protesters?… Get ’em out of here. Where do these people come from?” Trump says the protesters come from “Bernie’s crowd.” Trump says they are most likely Bernie’s people because even though some protesters are Clinton supporters, Clinton’s supporters usually lack the “fervor.”

1:54: Trump successfully challenging the mainstream media’s narrative. And he again show why he is the Republican who can best challenge Hillary Clinton:

1:52: Trump accuses Rubio campaign of dirty tricks in Florida:

1:48: According to the Daily Mail, law enforcement officials believed that protesters in Chicago last night had planned to storm the stage while Trump was speaking. There was reportedly “a credible threat against Trump from groups of protesters who planned to storm the stage.”

1:45: Great rapid response work from Sanders campaign:

1:40: Clinton accuses Trump of being a political arsonist:

1:35: Sanders tells Jesse Jackson (!) that what Trump is doing is “dangerous” on so many levels:

1:25: Trump releases statement on postponed Chicago rally:

Commander George Devereux of the CPD was informed of everything before it happened. Likewise, Secret Service and private security firms were consulted and totally involved.

We have received great credit from everyone for cancelling this event. Nobody was injured and crowds disbanded quickly and peacefully. It has been termed “really good management and leadership under great pressure!”

It would have been easier for Mr. Trump to have spoken, but he decided, in the interest of everyone’s safety, to postpone the event.

11:53 – MSNBC commentator: “When minorities hear ‘Make America Great Again,’ what they really hear is ‘Make America White Again.'”

 

11:49 – Per MSNBC, protesters stormed the stage at the Trump rally. Secret Service cleared the stage. Trump returned to the stage….

“I have a great life, such a comfortable life. .What do I need this for? I’m doing it for our country, folks! … Is there anything more fun than a Trump rally?”

“My people are nice. They caused no problems. It’s the people who came there to protest who caused the problem. People are telling me to tell my supporters to behave. But my supporters are fine. We’re great. It’s the other people causing problems.”

“Trump wants to come here, and the campaign is still looking to find a location for either Sunday or Monday,” Deters said.

 

10:43: CBS reporter arrested after Trump rally postponed:

10:25: Trump on Hannity:

10:20: On CNN, Rubio says a president just can’t say whatever comes to his mind and there are consequences to someone’s words. He says Trump needs to “own up to the fact that the rhetoric he has used” has contributed to this climate. He says “there’s something different going on here” re: Trump’s rallies because there aren’t fights that break out at other candidates’s rallies. Rubio says Trump’s rhetoric, though, doesn’t excuse what the protesters did. Rubio says Trump is not directly responsible for the events in Chicago but bears responsibility for his campaign’s tone.

10:05: In Illinois, Cruz accuses Trump of “affirmatively encouraging violence.”

9:55: A lot of the anti-Trump protesters were chanting “Bernie!” Does Sanders have a responsibility to tell his supporters to stand down?

9:48: Chicago PD claims says they officially didn’t recommend that Trump cancel his rally. Trump has said law enforcement officials have praised his campaign for doing so:

Trump said people could have been hurt badly tonight and law enforcement has given him credit for making the right decision. Trump says he is not a person that wants to see violence, wants to see people hurt. He also says there are “certain groups” that agitate and “cause problems” and “they have caused problem” and they have stopped the right of free speech.

9:09: Now on CNN, Trump says he hopes his tone is not leading to violence. He says his core message is bringing jobs back to America and mentions that includes for the 59% of unemployed African-American youth. Trump has called into all of the major cable television networks. Trump says there is “great love” for his message at the stadiums. Trump says he thinks he did the right thing tonight after meeting with law enforcement after they told him that people could get hurt. Trump blasts CNN, like he did Fox News, for playing the same clips over and over again after the protesters have dispersed. Trump says his supporters have been treated unfairly because the First Amendment says we have the right to speak. Trump says he has “no regrets” talking about subjects like illegal immigration. When CNN’s Lemon asks Trump

8:46: On Fox News, Trump says President Obama has been a divider and he will be a “unifier.” He says he will unite the country by bringing jobs back.

8:45: CNN’s John King says because of the media’s coverage of the Chicago protesters, left-wing activists around the country may want to be copycats. “You can bet there will be more of this,” he says.

8:30: Anti-Trump protesters were chanting “We Stopped Trump.”

8:28: Speaking to Chris Matthews, Trump says we shouldn’t be restricted to having a rally because of ethnic diversity. Matthews says Trump should have been able to predict it. Trump says it is a major, great city in the United States and says it shouldn’t matter that we’re having a rally in Chicago or someplace else. Trump says he is surprised that Matthews says he shouldn’t have had the rally there when he has said on his program that Republicans should campaign in more diverse areas. Trump says political experts have said these protests will probably increase his vote share.

8:25: Leftist/Progressive refers to protesters who are preventing cops from doing their jobs as “brave.”

8:24: Gergen continues to compare Trump to George Wallace. He points out that eventually he got shot himself and was badly wounded. “Terrible.” He, for some reason, insists that “similar things were going on” at Sarah Palin rallies in 2008.

8:20: On CNN, former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino, who worked for Obama and has endorsed Cruz, says the media should not blame Trump for putting the public in danger. “I don’t get it,” he says, noting that he has been on both sides of this. Bongino says we see nasty rhetoric emanating from the left but Republican candidates are held to a different standard. He says it is very dangerous to pin this on a candidate who hasn’t broken any laws. Bongino says Trump is running on a platform that he doesn’t agree with but it is “dangerous” to pin this on Trump.

8:14: More information on the man who stormed the stage.

8:13: Aerial shots of scene at postponed Trump rally:

8:12: Chicago Police Department’s radio live feed

 

8:10: Chris Matthews reportedly saying Trump should  not have had a rally at a “diverse” city like Chicago. This is the same mainstream media that criticize Republicans for not going into diverse areas. Can’t win with them.

While that did not happen, the results of the last two weeks make clear that the most reliable conservative with the best chance to win is Ted Cruz. He can win our party’s nomination and even more importantly, can beat Hillary Clinton in November. Therefore I have cast my ballot for Ted and am now honored to endorse his campaign, encouraging all who believe in strong families, free-markets, and the Constitution, to similarly rally to this effort and vote for Ted as the next President of the United States.”

Cruz said he was “Honored to have the endorsement of such a principled leader and defender of the Constitution like Trent.”

“He rightfully knows that it’s time for all conservatives to coalesce around our campaign in order to stop Donald Trump,” Cruz added. “Arizona will have the opportunity to help choose the next President of the United States in less than two weeks and I urge all Arizonans to join Rep. Franks in support of our campaign.”

But he says his mother could also be the most loyal friend and speaks about her friendship with Joan Rivers. He says if his Mom and one great talent, it was how to love and she loved his Dad.

2:45: Trump says Ivanka and his son-in-law Jared asked him to presidential last night during the debate. Trump says he acted very presidential last night but that isn’t as fun. So he blasts “lyin’ Ted” and “Little Marco.”

9:40 – Trump: “The Republican Party has lots its way.”

During his Friday presser, Trump said that the “Republican party has lost its way. It’s lost two elections it should have won, especially the last one.”

 

9:32 – Trump’s New Tone: “There are two Donald Trumps”

During a press conference after receiving the endorsement of Dr. Ben Carson, Republican front-runner Donald Trump continued to present himself as he did at last night’s debate: as more presidential, subdued, while still being open to the media. Trump said, “There are two Donald Trumps.” When pressed by the media on what that means, Trump said that there is the Trump who brawled his way through the primary and the guy who is “thoughtful” and “reads and thinks.”

Trump is presenting himself as inevitable, as someone prepared to unify. Four days before a crucial set of primaries, he’s in close-the-deal mode.

 

9:28 – Trump lands the endorsement of Dr. Ben Carson.

Conservative favorite Ben Carson, who last week suspended his campaign for the Republican presidential nomination, plans to endorse Donald Trump on Friday morning, according to two people familiar with his thinking.

The endorsement, perhaps the most high-profile nod for Trump since New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie backed him, was finalized Thursday morning when Carson met with Trump at Mar-a-Lago, the luxury club owned by the Republican front-runner, the people said. The sources requested anonymity to discuss private conversations.

Friday’s announcement will also take place at the club in Palm Beach, Fla., where the onetime rivals will appear alongside one another at a news conference.

Breitbart News responds to Donald Trump’s claim that Michelle Fields made up the story of being harshly grabbed at a campaign event.

Breitbart News stands behind Michelle Fields. Even Donald Trump campaign spokesperson Katrina Pierson said Thursday that “someone probably did grab her,” i.e. Fields, though she claimed it could not have been Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski. Trump’s suggestion that Fields made up the incident Tuesday evening contradicts the evidence, including her own injuries, an account from Washington Post reporter Ben Terris, and audio recorded at the scene.
