Daniel Politi, Slate: Reporters covering Donald Trump rallies are used to getting booed and heckled. After all, the Republican presidential candidate often criticizes the news media, and his supporters like to let journalists know they agree. But the heckling reached a new level Saturday in Phoenix, where one man directly confronted the journalists with an anti-Semitic chant and hand gestures that sure resembled hate symbols. The man seemed to be acting on his own, turning around to face the members of the press directly and yell: “You’re going down! You’re the enemy!” The crowd then proceeded to chant “USA! USA!” and the man, who was wearing a “Hillary for Prison” T-shirt, joined in with his own little chant: “Jew S.A.! Jew S.A.!” He also made hand gestures that looked like a variation of a white supremacist symbol. The chants “provided a reminder why some Republicans cannot bring themselves to support Trump,” notes Reuters.
