Things took a turn for the weird Monday, when Donald Trump brought a little girl on stage during a campaign rally in Green Bay, Wis., picked her up, called her “beautiful” several times, then tried to plant a kiss on her.
Trump was partially successful with the first peck, but the 6-year-old turned away from his advance the second time.
The odd moment with the children happened as the Republican presidential nominee is denying claims he's groped and forcibly kissed women over the years. Trump has also been quoted or caught on tape making statements about dating girls when they come of age and wanting to have sex with "deeply troubled" young women because they are "always the best in bed."
Trump later picked up a little boy for a bit of a show-and-tell with the crowd. He managed to successfully land a kiss on the boy.
