BRIAN KILMEADE: But because of Friday night's cancellation, because this clown, this 22-year-old running on the stage, every single one of his events is going to be an opportunity for some knucklehead to get some publicity and for some group to get their name in the limelight and maybe raise some money off it, Steve, because they could stop a Trump rally. People say, yeah Donald Trump's inciting -- look at it this way, the people who come to his event aren't the problem. The people who protest the event are the problem.

AINSLEY EARHARDT: Protesters are getting mad at Donald Trump for throwing them out -- he's throwing them out of their events--

STEVE DOOCY: If they disrupt. 

EARHARDT: I found this interesting. I was reading an article this morning, the ACLU even was quoted saying that campaign events are considered political theater. That candidates, they rent out the space, they are allowed to tell anyone that they have to get out and they can leave, they can be arrested and charged with trespassing.

DOOCY: It is a private event. They are invited guests.
