Trump removes protester who called him a 'dictator' from rally

Former President Donald Trump promptly had a protester removed from his rally on Saturday night after he called out "dictator" about him, as well as removing a man dressed in a white KKK outfit. 

Trump also spoke at the rally to address concerns about his mental fitness after he appeared to say that rival Nikki Haley was responsible for security on January 6, 2021 instead of then-Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA).

"I feel my mind is stronger now than it was 25 years ago. Is that possible?" Trump said confidently.

He also said that he took another cognitive test in New Hampshire and "aced" it. Biden has refused to take a cognitive test despite many signs of dementia and mental decline.

Too old?

At 77, Trump is younger than his presumptive general election foe President Joe Biden, who is 81.

But not much, and many voters have complained about both candidates being too old to lead the free world for the next four years.

Clearly, Trump is far more coherent than Biden, however.

Trump spent most of the New Hampshire rally attacking Haley. He predicted that Florida Governor Ron DeSantis was "done," and within 48 hours DeSantis did drop out and endorse him.

To Trump's credit, he turned off the taunts and said he was "honored" to receive the endorsement.

The polls in New Hampshire are closer than other states, but FiveThirtyEight has Trump at 50.8% and Haley at 36.6%.

Haley's chances

One poll, American Research Group, has only a 2% difference between Trump and Haley in the state, but it seems to be an outlier compared to all the other polls.

Haley winning New Hampshire would be a long shot, but after that Trump's lead is much larger, even in Haley's home state of North Carolina.

Trump isn't taking any chances: he brought a number of South Carolina officials who had endorsed him to the rally, including several House members and current Governor Henry McMaster.

"There's nowhere for Haley to come. So after President Trump wins on Tuesday, Nikki Haley needs to drop out," Sen. Rick Scott (R-SC) said after the rally. Haley has more support from moderates and even some Democrats than any of Trump's other rivals.
