7:05 pm
cell phone video sent in shows a protester escorted out and people putting their hands all over him. here it is from another angle. you see the two men in suits coming up, a guy on the left and a white shirt starts grabbing the protesters and shoves him in the ground. the crowd briefly chants about beating him. this time right in front of donald trump, two guys in black shirts grabbed the two protesters and pushed them toward the door. >> they got a little physical and even like the people involved in the rally were also getting physical trying to get them out. but it was a good experience, but a little bit high tension, you could say. ucf says 65 people were kicked out. none were injured that they know of and none were arrested. >> it was kind of intense, like a weird vibe out here for sure. >> go home to mommy. >> reporter: trump taunted the protesters at time. >> i wish we had real
