“When Donald Trump said he would bring back waterboarding as an interrogation tactic against terrorism suspects, and added, ‘If it doesn’t work, they deserve it anyway,’ an older couple behind the group of teenagers threw back their heads in utter delight. ‘Amen,’ the woman said. ‘Oh, my God,’ one of the high school girls said. Another covered her mouth in shock.

“Then, when Mr. Trump began talking about surveillance of refugees, the college-age couple standing in front of the students began chanting, ‘Hating Muslims helps ISIS!’ The students were caught off guard, but after a moment of uncertainty, some of them joined in.

Steven Hopkins [of Waverly, Ohio] leaned over and screamed, ‘Shut up!’

“Mr. Trump stopped his remarks and looked toward the commotion with disgust. ‘Two people, two people,’ he said dismissively of the couple, as the crowd started booing and the people around them began shouting. ‘So sad,’ Mr. Trump said. ‘Yeah, you can get ’em the hell out.’

“The crowd erupted in triumph as the protesters and students turned to leave. ‘Get out of here!’ Mr. Hopkins shouted, shoving one of the two protesters in the back on his way out.” — from an 11.25 N.Y. Times report by Jason Horovitz (“At Donald Trump Rally, Ohio Students Become Part of a Lesson”).
