Trump Rally In Costa Mesa, CA Ends With Violent Protests (Updated With Video)

Welcome to California, Mr. Trump. Now go home.

Protesters gathered in what was intended to be a peaceful protest against Donald Trump's presence in Costa Mesa, California tonight, but as the sun went down things turned ugly.

While Trump held a rally at Vanguard University the Pacific Amphitheater in Costa Mesa tonight, protesters came together to protest his hateful message.

Trump supporters didn't really care much for the protest.

Things grew more tense.

People didn't like nearly being run over.

This behavior is uncalled for.

One of the signs:

Meanwhile, inside the stadium, Trump lied to his audience and told them 31,000 were there. Maximum capacity is 18,000. From accounts on Twitter, he was his usual mouth-breathing, hissing, hateful self, and if his fans are any indication, he's lit them up too.

I will be so glad when this primary is over.
