At a campaign rally in Cedar Rapids, Iowa Monday afternoon, only hours prior to the much-ballyhooed Iowa Caucus, bombastic billionaire and reality TV star Donald Trump encouraged rally attendees to ‘knock the crap out’ of protesters they may see getting ready to throw a tomato at him.
Trump then promised to “pay for the legal fees,” and offered that “the courts agree” with him. Trump repeated the words, saying he was serious.
Here’s the exact quote:
“There may be somebody with tomatoes in the audience. So if you see somebody getting ready to throw a tomato, knock the crap out of them, would you? Seriously. Okay? Just knock the hell— I promise you, I will pay for the legal fees. I promise, I promise. It won’t be so much ’cause the courts agree with us too — what’s going on in this country.”
