For more than a year New York Times reporters Erica Berenstein, Nick Corasaniti, and Ashley Parker attended Donald Trump rallies. Then they compiled this video. Their report and the video were published by the Times on August 3, 2016.
… what struck us was the frequency with which some Trump supporters use coarse, vitriolic, even violent language — in the epithets they shout and chant, the signs they carry, the T-shirts they wear — a pattern not seen in connection with any other recent political candidate, in any party.Not everyone attending a Trump rally behaves this way. In fact, many are polite and well mannered. But while protesters are often shouted down, crowds seldom express disapproval of the crude slogans and angry outbursts by Mr. Trump’s supporters.
This is not the America I know. Or ever want to know.
