Let's review: without waiting to be called on, Univision's Jorge Ramos started asking Donald Trump questions at his news conference. Trump got mad and told Ramos to "go back to Univision" before having his bouncer toss Ramos from the auditorium. One of Trump's supporters outside the auditorium - even wearing a signature Trump costume and button - got the message loud and clear and told Ramos to "Get out of my country. Get out!"
Here's the picture. But you can see him much more clearly in the video which you can find embedded in this story.
Now first off, if you watch the video, can anyone identify the supporter in this video? The video is very clear. Maybe he's just some totally random Trump supporter who happened to be outside the press conference. But my hunch is there's a bit more to it than that and I bet someone reading this can identify him. If you can, please drop us a line. Click the email link right under the TPM logo at the upper left to send us a note. I really, really would like to know who this person is and whether he has any connection to the Trump campaign other than simply supporting the candidate.
