Liberals Throw Eggs At Children Standing Outside Rally Supporting Trump
Three males between the ages of 20 and 25 threw eggs at the children
Three children and three adults were pelted with eggs "during a Republican Political Rally" outside the Crossroads Restaurant in Wilmington, according to Delaware State Police.
Three males between the ages of 20 and 25 threw eggs at the children and adults as they drove by in a car.
Although no injuries were reported, there is now an active investigation into the incident, according to The Blaze.
Republican candidate from Delaware for U.S. Senate, Lauren Witzke, hosted the event to support President Donald Trump.
Witzke posted a video on Twitter showing a little girl with eggshells in her hair and a little boy with an egg on his shirt following the incident.
"I wanted to show you what these hateful liberals did to a little child," Witzke said in the clip as the video camera focused on top of the girl's head.
"They drove by, and they threw eggs at little children."
Witzke said that participants of the rally were waiting for police and had the license plate of the egg-throwers' vehicle.
"This is a hate crime right here," she said.
Witzke added that "little children [are] getting egged" "just for being conservative."
Witzke also said:
"This is what the Democrat Party represents, this is what the Democrat party allows."
"We have to build something better for our children and their future because the radical left will throw eggs at little children, the radical left will throw profanities at little children."

But there were mixed reactions to the incident on Twitter:
"Stop putting kids in the line of fire," one commenter wrote.
"Children are not props. Your whole message is lost when you have these children in harm's way.
"Now you use them as a prop. Manipulate peoples emotion to fit your view. You are a piece of s**t."
"I'm pro-Trump, but using that poor wee girl to make a point is unacceptable," another commenter said.
"Instead of standing over her and sticking a phone in her face ... she should have been held and comforted. Eggs hurt when you're hit by one. And clearly, her eye was bothering her. Shame on you."
"Eggs are better than pepper spray," another detractor noted.
But such perspectives had pushback too.
One commenter noted:
"If this were the other way around, there would be a mic in every conservative congressman's face asking whether or not they denounced it.
"NO Democrat in Congress or running for office is ever asked to comment on stuff like this."
