Things got heated – again – at a Donald Trump rally in Janesville, Wisconsin this week when two men groped and pepper sprayed a 15-year-old girl. A 19-year-old woman was also pepper sprayed. Both were treated at a nearby hospital.

The 15-year-old was protesting at the rally with sign reading, “Damn, Donald, back at it again with the white supremacy.” During the altercation between the protestors and the Trump supporters a man in the crowd groped the 15-year-old. After accusing him of touching her, the woman punched the man in the face and was then immediately pepper sprayed in the face.
The Trump supporters cheered after the girl was pepper sprayed, with one man screaming profanities at her:

This is not the first time protestors have been assaulted at a Trump rally by his supporters. What makes it worse is the fact that Trump seems to egg them on, even suggesting that some people should be assaulted.
