Donald Trump finally admitted the obvious about his out-of-control supporters during his "Thank You Tour" on Friday in Orlando, Fla., and said, "You were nasty and mean and vicious and you wanted to win, right?"

After many violent incidents at his rallies, Donald Trump and his team blamed Bernie Sanders, the media and Democratic operatives for paying people off to make it look like his supporters were violent.

However, now, Trump has finally told the truth:

"You people were vicious, violent, screaming, 'Where's the wall? We want the wall!' Screaming, 'Prison! Prison! Lock her up!' I mean you are going crazy. I mean, you were nasty and mean and vicious and you wanted to win, right?"

Yes, they were.

He continued, "But now, you're mellow and you're cool and you're not nearly as vicious or violent, right? Because we won, right?"

Ya, think?

Among other incidents, a Trump supporter was charged with assault for sucker-punching a protester at a rally in March, another protester was separately sucker-punched at a different rally the same month, a man knocked down and kicked a protester last October, a photographer was bloodied after being hit by a rock in June, a Trump supporter was bloodied in a scuffle outside a rally in April, and both sides used pepper spray on each other in a clash outside a city council meeting in April.

In addition, the Trump campaign in March cancelled a rally in Chicago moments before it was set to start over safety concerns as thousands of protesters swarmed the area.

Now he's calling "bygones."

How will the media react?
