Bernie Sanders folks behind it, as they whipped out Bernie signs:
Protesters, meanwhile, shouted “We shut s*** down” and “We stumped Trump.” Others chanted “Bernie” as supporters whipped out Bernie Sanders campaign signs.
Some protesters were being detained and forcefully carried out.
Chicago police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi told CNN that there were no reports of injuries or arrests at the event. He added that attendees were exiting the rally and appeared to be civil.
A crowd of protesters outside the rally site had been steadily growing throughout the afternoon. Earlier Friday, 32 people were arrested in protests both inside and outside Trump’s rally at the Peabody Opera House in St. Louis, police said. Thirty-one people were charged with disturbing the peace, and one was charged with third-degree assault. St. Louis police declined to provide further details.
Right now, they are chanting, ‘Fuck the police’ as they chant outside the rally venue.
Fox tried to interview two Hispanic protesters who refused to answer why they were there. We’ve seen in the past how the left has sometimes drafted numbers out to protests who don’t even know why they are there, and in some instances are paid. Someone ought to ask here if any money was spread around to get folks out. More
