Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump told a protester to “go home to mommy” on Monday at a campaign rally in Concord, North Carolina.

The protester was one of several escorted out of the campaign event.

“Go home to mommy,” Trump said, calling the protester a “nasty guy.” “Tell her to tuck you in bed.”

Towards the start of the rally, Trump asked those in the audience to raise their right hands and take a “pledge” that they would vote for him. As his rally later drew to a close, Trump raised his own hand and told rally attendees to “remember that pledge.”

It’s not the first time Trump has asked his audience members to take the pledge and the former head of the Anti-Defamation League called it an intentional “fascist gesture.”

The real estate mogul also appears unable to shake off Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL)’s criticism that he has small hands, in what was seemingly a reference to the size of his manhood.

Trump said at the rally that he thought Rubio was “going to melt” when New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie took a jab at him at a previous Republican presidential debate.

“I was all set to grab him by the way with this very powerful hand,” Trump said, adding that Rubio made up that he has small hands.

    Always keeping it classy. Bet he never said that to LiButti.

  2. Heil Trumph!

    I know, but when the shoe fits…

  3. Drumpf: I sent him home for some Family Time. He wasnt going to take the pledge so it worked out good for both of us.

  4. There is a hilarious interview with the founders of Spy Magazine on NPR, who also started the ¨short-fingered vulgarian¨ taunt years ago. Apparently Trump has been sending them pictures of his hands ever since in an effort to prove to them that his fingers aren´t short, even though the magazine has been defunct for a while. He´s one insecure puppy.
