Donald Trump Fumes: ‘I Wanted To Hit A Couple’ Of Those DNC Speakers So Hard! (VIDEO)

When Donald Trump tuned in to the Democratic National Convention this week, he was not a fan of what he heard.

Trump said Thursday at a rally in Davenport, Iowa that he was so enraged by some of the speakers’ comments about him that he wanted to “hit them.”

“You know what I wanted to. I wanted to hit a couple of those speakers so hard,” Trump said. “I would have hit them. No, no. I was going to hit them, I was all set and then I got a call from a highly respected governor.”

The Republican nominee didn’t name the speakers that displeased him so, but he did target one “very little guy.”

“I was gonna hit one guy in particular, a very little guy,” he told ABC News. “I was gonna hit this guy so hard his head would spin and he wouldn’t know what the hell happened.”

This is a callback to some of Trump’s less presidential behavior, including voicing a desire to rough up protestors at his rallies.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
