A boy, believed to be about 10 years old, shouted, "Take the b---- down!" during a rally for Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump on Aug. 2 in Ashburn, Virginia.
The boy's mom, Pam Kohler, refused to give her son's age, but defended his foul language when questioned by reporters, notes the Los Angeles Times.
"He's a minor so he can't be interviewed," Kohler said. "I think he has a right to speak what he wants to."
While defending her son's profanity, Kohler also set the blame for his language on "Democratic schools," a concept that she did not explain.
The rally was held at Briar Woods High School and there were signs behind Kohler's and her son's seats that said: "Trustworthy, Respectful, United, Excellent."
Kohler reportedly tried to block reporters' cameras with a Trump sign.
NBC News reporter Katy Tur tweeted that the child's mother also said: "Children are children."
At the same rally, Trump was speaking about China devaluing its currency when he stopped to joke about a crying baby in the audience, reports NPR.
"Don't worry about that baby," Trump stated. "I love babies. I love babies. I hear that baby crying, I like it. I like it! What a baby. What a beautiful baby. Don't worry, don't worry. The mom is running around like, don't worry about it, you know? It's young and beautiful and healthy, and that's what we want."
Trump continued his speech about China and trade, but soon stopped again.
"Actually, I was only kidding, you can get the baby out of here," Trump told the mom. "That's all right. Don't worry. I think she really believed me that I love having a baby crying while I'm speaking. That's OK. People don't understand. That's OK."
In response, some people mocked Trump on Twitter:
"the baby he attacked still has a more presidential temperament than donald trump."
"At a rally Tuesday, Donald Trump ordered security to eject a crying baby. Secret Service carried Trump outside before realizing the error."
