Donald Trump’s supporters are usually the ones being blamed for creating chaos, but it was demonstrators Thursday night who attacked the GOP frontrunner’s supporters creating an “ugly, bloody scene” as one headline read. Check out some photos and a video clip below.

“Protesters jumped on cars, pelted Trump supporters with eggs and water balloons, snatched signs and stole Make America Great hats off supporters’ heads before burning the hats and snapping selfies with the charred remains, the article detailed.

Trump supporters were punched and at least one attacked was arrested, but details from police were sketchy at first.

Some chanted “F— Donald Trump” and “Donald Trump has got to go” outside the San Jose Convention Center, where Trump held his rally.

As Trump supporters exited the rally, protesters shouted insults at them and accused them of being racists.

“The San Jose Police Department made a few arrests tonight after the Donald Trump Rally,” police said in a statement. “As of this time, we do not have specific information on the arrests made. There has been no significant property damage reported. One officer was assaulted.”

In one video circulating widely on social media, two protesters tried to protect a Trump supporter as other protesters attacked him and called him names.

Another video captured a female Trump supporter taunting protesters before being surrounded and struck in the face with an egg and water balloons.

A week ago, it was Albuquerque descending into chaos as the city was shaken by raucous riots and arrests outside a Trump rally.
