RUSH: This is a little aside.  I remember Hillary Clinton demanding people showing up at one of her events in Cleveland (it was back in September) actually sign a pledge to vote for her.  And then, the Drive-Bys didn't think anything of it.  But they can't abide Trump doing it.  And then, of course, there were some hecklers, and Trump dealt with the hecklers in a way that the Drive-Bys disapprove of.  Trump said, "Kick 'em out. It's 10 degrees outside. Don't give 'em their coats. Just keep their coats and send 'em out there. Kick 'em out of here." 

What the Drive-Bys are not telling you (and you probably know it by now) is that Bernie Sanders and his campaign planned all of these hecklers and disrupters.  There was a strategic plan to disrupt Trump's appearance last night by the Bernie Sanders campaign. And who knows? Maybe old Bern himself was involved in it.  So Trump gets wind of it, and he's not going to let it happen. The protesters start protesting, start heckling, and Trump kicks 'em out.  Which is standard operating procedure.  Look, just like the Constitution's not a suicide pact, neither is the First Amendment. 

Just because people have a right to speak doesn't mean you have to turn your event over to them and have them destroy it.  Kick 'em out of there.  They're really mad that Trump had no compassion. "He wanted to kick 'em out without their coats!"  Wait a minute. Wait a minute. Wait a minute. These are all Bernie Sanders supporters. That means they're big socialists, and it's clear that there are people in Vermont that don't even have a coat. So send those people out there, hold their coats, and give their coats to the poor in Burlington or wherever else in Vermont that you want to -- and "spread the wealth around" that way. 

I don't think it would have gone over, which would have been a great illustration.
