“I would say yes, it was right for the Chicago protesters to disrupt the rally because Donald Trump constantly uses freedom of speech to spread hatred among the nation.The people of Chicago exercised the same right to say as they please as opposition to what Trump had expressed.”

”Although I am anti-Trump, I do not believe the way the protesters came in and disrupted his rally was the way to go about voicing their political views. Yes, as Americans we have freedom of speech. However, that does not give us the right to protest disrespectfully.”

“Oh heck yeah I support what they did one hundred percent! Yes they have the right to do that, it’s in the constitution. I fully support the protest.”

“Donald Trump is rude so why can’t the protesters be rude too?”

“No I don’t support what the protesters did. Trump is running for president. Even if you don’t like what he’s saying you shouldn’t go and ruin his moment to try and run.”
