Several hundred protesters clashed with police and blocked the highway Friday afternoon in front of the Burlingame, California venue where Donald Trump was scheduled to kick off the California Republican Convention.

As the GOP frontrunner’s motorcade neared the Hyatt Regency Hotel, the cars made a U-turn and pulled to the shoulder of the freeway, allowing Trump and his entourage to disembark and proceed to a side entrance on foot.

Outside the event, protesters carried signs decrying Trump’s rhetoric about immigrants and minorities. A few knocked barricades aside in an effort to enter the hotel and were pushed back by security guards wielding batons.

While trying to capture the chaotic scene, CNN accidentally caught some not-suitable-for-TV language in its footage.

Host Brooke Baldwin urged the producers to “get off that picture,” saying the network was “not trying to have the ‘F’ word broadcast on TV.”
