BURLINGAME, Calif. -- Hundreds of anti-Donald Trump protesters crowded the streets near the Hyatt Regency in Burlingame as the presidential candidate arrived for the Republican convention.
A man wearing a Trump campaign "Make America Great Again" red hat was struck while being jostled by a group of shouting protesters.
"It went gangbusters. They attacked me," said Chris Conway, who identified himself as mortgage broker from San Mateo.
A dozen protesters linked arms to block the road in front of the hotel near San Francisco International Airport, but no one was using the street because police had already closed it to traffic. Protesters also draped a large "Stop Hate" banner outside the hotel.
After Trump took the podium, he described having to take a complicated detour to get into the venue due to the rowdy protesters outside.
"That was not the easiest entrance I've ever made... it felt like I was crossing the border actually," he said.
Barricades were set up Thursday night around the Hyatt Regency, where organizers were excited that Trump was kicking off the convention. But if it's anything like Southern California's events, it could be a wild weekend.
About 20 people were arrested by Costa Mesa police Thursday night as Trump protesters and supporters took to the streets outside Orange County Fairgrounds, where the Republican presidential candidate was speaking....
At one point, seven shirtless women wearing Bernie Sanders stickers over their breasts entered the square outside the amphitheater. They said they were protesting Trump's lack of engagement on issues of gender equality and women's rights.
In Burlingame, police have spent a month planning and asked for help from every agency in the county and also state and federal officials.
Donald Trump was set to speak around 12:45 p.m. John Kasich is scheduled to speak in the evening,...

These mobs are out of control nationwide. We are losing America to a small group of hired thugs, many of them foreign.
Any Justice Department worth it’s salt would have found out what is taking place here, and put and end to it and it’s promoters long before now.
there. fixed it.
Coming to a town near you if Americans don’t wake up and deal with illegals.
Absolutely. None of these people love this nation or respect our laws.
Can you imagine several hundred Trump supporters surrounding and attacking
lets say a Mexican or a Black lives matter individual
this would be ALL over the media and Obama would have his entire justice Dept. in California! SICK of these UNAMERICAN pukes!

am unsure of definitions, but doesn’t this type of protesting qualify for being labeled as “anarchy??”
DOJ is AWOL.
“In Burlingame, police have spent a month planning and asked for help from every agency in the county and also state and federal officials.”
This is private property. No trespassing. For Hyatt Hotel guests and GOP attendees only. Very simple. Block the entrance and require a pass or no entrance.
They are putting DJT life at risk intentionally.
Assault on LEO
Assault on civilians
Destruction of private property
Destruction of government property
.... ... .. .
Yeah, it showed.
The protest erupt? It do that?
Maybe when you re-write a title you should use English.
And Trump is not letting it affect him. Like him or not, he's gutsy.
the protesters meet the definition, so why aren’t they called anarchists??
I'd qualify it as "rioting" and would arrest the people who organized it for inciting a riot. Silly me, the rule of law is now so passe!
You know there’s no hope when a Republican nominee sided with these thugs over Republican primary voters. Lying Ted lost soooo much support by defending their actions in Chicago to score cheap political points. He still just looks the other way and encourages it with his Establishment cronies doing the same.
“the protesters meet the definition, so why arent they called anarchists??”
We’re not even allowed to call an illegal alien an illegal alien.
