A horrific sight to see on the 2016 campaign trail.
Protesters gathered outside Donald Trump’s rally in Anaheim, California on Tuesday, where they met Trump’s supporters head-on and a heated confrontation ensued.
An anti-Trump protester fired a stream of pepper spray into the crowd, hitting five people, including two children. The girls, ages 8 and 11, were among the targets and could be seen sobbing as a woman wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat comforted them.

One of the girls was taken to the hospital by paramedics. A look at the scene of the protest:
The man police believe responsible fled the scene and has not yet been located.
Is this what we’re to expect now?
@ABC pepper-sprayed kids? Oh my God, what is wrong with you people?
