Anti Trump crowd tries to block his entrance to convention

CNN:
Demonstrators storm California GOP convention to protest Trump

Ted Cruz was critical of the demonstrators who tried to block Trump from speaking.

"The First Amendment protects everyone's right to speak. But you don't have a right to threaten violence, you don't have a right to shout down others, and these protesters appear to be trying to use violence and threats. These are the strategies of MoveOn.org, of the left wing agitators, who try to silence a voice they don't like. If you disagree with a particular voice, the way to deal with it is with civil discourse, with respectful discourse. You know, when I have protesters that's how I deal with the protesters. Not inciting violence, not shouting people down, but engaging in civil discourse. And I think - to the extent these protesters are crossing the line to violence, and I haven't seen much of the coverage today but my understanding is things have gotten pretty ugly out there - uh that is not appropriate, that is not acceptable to threaten violence as the protesters are doing. And they are entitled to express their own views but not in a way that is disruptive and muzzles others."

I am pretty sure that Trump would not have been as classy if the roles were reversed.
