Convention protests hit a new low on Tuesday as members of The KKK, Black Lives Matter, and Westboro Baptist Church threw urine at each other outside of the Republican National Convention.
The Cleveland-based convention looked pristine on the inside but outside it wasn't so pretty. Hundreds of protesters and police occupied a public square outside the RNC on Tuesday, sparking heavy law enforcement presence for several hours.
"Activists from Black Lives Matter, Westboro Baptist Church and the KKK were in the square and, at one time, were said to be throwing urine at each other," a local NBC affiliate reported.
A fight even broke out after radio show host Alex Jones before being whisked away as police were forced to push back the aggressive crowd.
The hundreds of officers outnumbered the demonstrators and managed to separate the groups of protesters. Various factions appeared throughout the day including a "Tamir Rice group, a man carrying an AR-15, a man with a sign saying 'Jesus Vapes,' a woman doing yoga with a pro-police and anti-bullying sign and another person asking folks to tell their best Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump joke," the NBC affiliate reported.
In addition to the urine-chucking, officials claimed that "11 members of the planning team for the California delegation to the Republican convention were recovering from a bout of norovirus, or what's commonly known as stomach flu, health officials said," The New York Post reported. The symptoms of norovirus can range from vomiting to diarrhea.
Actor Billy Baldwin was there too. He claimed he was there supporting police and Black Lives Matter.
