Attend a Donald Trump rally and you'll see all sorts of child abuse

Via the New York Times:
[A] crying baby was initially welcome in the Trump event [today in Virginia,] or so the crowd was led to believe.

“Don’t worry about that baby. I love babies,” Mr. Trump said. “I hear that baby crying, I like it. What a baby, what a beautiful baby. Don’t worry, don’t worry.”

But Mr. Trump’s pacifying platitudes did nothing to comfort the howling infant, whose persistent wails seemed to be getting on the candidate’s nerves.

“Actually, I was only kidding, you can get that baby out of here,” Mr. Trump said a few beats later with a slight smirk as laughs and a few gasps escaped from the crowd. “Don’t worry, I think she really believed me that I love having a baby crying while I’m speaking. That’s O.K. People don’t understand. That’s O.K.”

Perhaps Trump could learn a thing or two on how to deal with fussy babies from President Obama. But when you have a major empathy deficit, like Trump, that's close to impossible.

Advisor Ben Rhodes brought his daughter Ella by for a visit.
As she was crawling around the Oval Office, the President
got down on his hands and knees to look her in the eye.”
