WATCH: Trump blasts gay anthem as he angrily storms off stage

Young man, there’s no need to feel down

Trump then abruptly ended the event and stormed off the stage…as the opening of “Y.M.C.A.” blared from the speakers.

Vox reporter Aaron Rupar had plenty else to say about the cringey conference.
