Trump Rally Descends into Chaos as Police Drench Protesters with Pepper Spray (VIDEO)

It seems Trump’s rage-fueled campaign has finally hit its boiling point. Not even a day after the mass protest that cancelled Trump’s Chicago rally, police used pepper spray on a crowd of protesters at this Saturday’s Trump rally in Kansas City.

“I’m just very thankful I didn’t get the brunt of it. I know some people had to have,” said journalist Josh Helmuth. “Again, not sure what happened, but we’re gonna try to get out of this area.”

“They didn’t care if you were on the sidewalk or on the street, they sprayed everyone down a long radius.”

Watch the videos of the attack below:

Left untreated, pepper spray in the eyes can permanently damage the corneas. Protesters on the scene were treating victims of the pepper spray attack with milk:

In response to the pepper spray attacks, Kansas City Police has issued this statement via Twitter:

In 4 of the 5 states voting on March 15, Trump rallies have been hot spots of violence due to amped-up Trump supporters:

  • In Fayetteville, North Carolina, 78-year-old Jim McGraw was caught on video punching protester Rakeem Jones in the face without provocation.
  • As mentioned earlier, a Trump rally in Chicago was cancelled after thousands of protesters showed up and surrounded the venue where the billionaire real estate magnate was scheduled to speak, prompting spats of violence from angry Trump supporters leaving the arena.
  • In Dayton, Ohio, a protester rushed the stage where Trump was speaking, prompting Secret Service detail to tackle and arrest the man.
  • The scene outside of a Trump rally got particularly violent in Saint Louis, Missouri, yesterday outside of the Peabody Opera House, where at least one man was bloodied by Trump supporters.
