President Obama Met A Child With Cerebral Palsy Who Was Booted From A Trump Rally

On Saturday J.J. Holmes, a 12-year-old boy with cerebral palsy, was kicked out of a Donald Trump rally in Tampa, Fla. On Sunday, Holmes and his mother, Alison, made the 70-mile trip to Kissimmee and were greeted by none other than President Obama.

J.J. and Alison attended the Trump rally in Tampa together, hoping to draw further attention to the Republican candidate’s mockery of the disabled. Mother and son — the latter through his text-to-voice software — chanted Hillary Clinton’s name, and were asked to leave by security, though not before the crowd began chanting “U-S-A!” and physically pushing the 12-year-old’s wheelchair. (According to Alison’s comments in the Washington Post, Trump himself joined in, repeatedly shouting “Get them out” from the stage.)
