A Univision crew was kicked out of a Donald Trump rally in Florida yesterday—and they weren't the only ones to get the boot. The campaign event was being held at the Trump National Doral hotel, near Univision's headquarters in south Florida, and the station says crews from both its national network and its local affiliate were asked to leave, Local 10 reports. A Trump spokeswoman confirmed that the news crews had been asked to leave and said it was because of Trump's lawsuit against the network," Variety reports. "Mr. Trump is suing Univision for $500 million and until that is resolved it is a conflict of interest," she said. Univision anchor Jorge Ramos was kicked out of a Trump event in August.

During the rally, three groups of protesters were chucked out after interrupting Trump, who told supporters not to injure them as they were jostled on the way out, reports the Washington Post. "Don't hurt 'em. You can get 'em out, but don't hurt 'em," he said. Trump told the crowd that he didn't believe a poll showing that Ben Carson—whom he described as low-energy and "weak on immigration"—has taken the lead in Iowa, CNN reports. He read the headline "Donald Trump falls to second place behind Ben Carson" and quipped: "We informed Ben, but he was sleeping." (More Donald Trump stories.)
