November 19, 2015 1:29 p.m.

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump mocked a protester for being “seriously overweight,” while the man was getting booted from Trump’s Worcester, Mass. rally Wednesday.

“You know, it’s amazing, I mention food stamps, and that guy who’s seriously overweight went crazy – amazing. Amazing,” Trump said to the cheering crowd. “That’s an amazing sight.”

Trump had said the U.S. has 43 million people receiving food stamps, a number which he claimed would grow to 50 million, before the protester interrupted, ABC News reported. The man was escorted out of the event, which was interrupted two other times.

In May, the U.S. Department of Agriculture, which runs the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, put the number of recipients at 45.7 million.
