President Donald Trump on Tuesday night held a Keep America Great rally in downtown Milwaukee, Wisconsin, where as usual he drew enormous crowds. Thousands of supporters packed the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee Panther Arena with thousands more braving the cold temperatures outside just to be a part of the experience.
As expected at most of his rallies, the president encountered a female protester early in his speech. His response to the woman was exactly what the fiery audience wanted to hear as police escorted her out of the building.
“She’s going home to mom where she will be in big trouble… I guarantee you that mom voted for Trump,” the president said, eliciting roars from the crowd.
“It’s called Trump derangement syndrome,” he added.

Trump almost always calls out protesters at his rallies as they’re being escorted out of the building, while usually praising the local police force for a swift response.
CBS 58 reported that the rally drew a wide range of ages, from children to elderly supporters.
Trump supporters described to the network how they felt about attending a Trump rally.
“This is a once-in-a-lifetime experience that you can only do a few times in your life, if any more than one time,” Josh Garvens told the reporter.
The highly-anticipated rally, which comes on the same night as the seventh Democratic primary debate in Iowa, was even attended by those from neighboring Illinois.
“I’m really excited that he’s actually coming to Milwaukee, and it’s great for me because I live in Illinois, and he never comes to Illinois. And so now that I go to school here, it was just a perfect opportunity to come see him, so it was just so exciting,” Trump supporter Hayley Johnson told the network.
