Is This What Will Finally Do Trump In?

Yesterday's campaign rally stunt might cost him.

Wondering how Donald Trump could possibly get more alarming as an increasingly feasible presidential nominee? The candidate reportedly kicked out a group of 30 black students who attended a campaign event at Valdosta State University in Georgia yesterday—students who claim they were standing silently in the bleachers. 

"We didn't plan to do anything," student Tahjila Davis told reporters. "They said, 'This is Trump's property; it's a private event.' But I paid my tuition to be here." 

The students were wearing all black as a Black Lives Matter statement—it's possible they were removed from the event because a Black Lives Matter protest disrupted a Trump speech earlier that day. 

Despite videos that show students being led out, Trump's team is doing damage control in the Trumpiest way imaginable: by denying any knowledge of the incident.

The news broke in time for Super Tuesday—whether the incident will affect Trump's numbers remains to be seen.
