President Donald Trump’s last campaign speech ahead of the midterm election on Monday night was interrupted for nearly 10 minutes after a woman collapsed and was later wheeled out of the Show Me Center in Cape Girardeau, Missouri, on a stretcher.

“Is there a doctor in the house, please,” Trump said while pointing to the crowd. “Doctor, please. Take your time. We have plenty of time, right?”

Some people in the audience broke the silence by intermittently shouting their approval of Trump, insulting CNN, singing “Amazing Grace,” and saying the Lord’s Prayer.
