“I remember when Bernie Sanders, when they took over his microphone. That’s not happening with Trump, folks," he said to the crowd after repeatedly pausing to wait for security to escort out protestors. 

"That’s going to be our leader? I don’t want to help Hillary, although I would rather run against Hillary. That scene where he lost control of his mic was pathetic, and this is what we have leading our country? “

"We have to a certain extent be a little bit ashamed because for the last eight years, we should have been doing the exact same thing," he said of the protestors. 

“Isn’t this more fun than a regular boring rally?”
