A rally in support of Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump at Penn State University — featuring a makeshift wall surrounding a flagpole — attracted the requisite reaction from anti-Trump students Tuesday.

One was caught on video ripping apart Trump campaign signs that were pulled from the wall — and with hardly any resistance.
Then a Trump-supporting student holding a pride flag, Campus Reform said, was asked by an anti-Trump student if she's gay.
"I'm part of the LGBT community," the Trump supporter responded.
"So you're not an ally, you're gay," the anti-Trump student continued, adding, “What does [Trump] do for gay people?”
With that, a voice from the Trump rally shot back, "What does Hillary do for gay people?"
The student paused for a second and then replied, “[Hillary] at least pretends to do stuff for gay people" — and a big laugh followed.
The Trump rally was organized by the “Bull Moose Party,” which had been named Students for Trump before the school reportedly prohibited the group from using Trump's name, Campus Reform said.
The group's president, Chris Baker, told the outlet that the school tried to shut down Tuesday’s event and "told us we could not [erect a] building on campus.”
But Baker said the wall — like the free-speech wall torn down earlier this month at Colorado State University — was part of peaceful demonstration and open for people to write on it "whatever they wanted.”
Baker added that the administration let the event go on after the Bull Moose Party refused to remove the wall, telling school officials that “if you want to [tear it down], you will have to do it.”
