Journalist Live Tweets 'American Horror Story' At Donald Trump Rally

Diana Price

A journalist attended one of Donald Trump's political rallies to get an inside look at the GOP presumptive nominee, live tweeting what he later dubbed a "homophobic, misogynistic, racist nightmare." The series of live tweets paint a chilling picture of a gathering marked with violence, bigotry, and a group of people united with a "palpable" anger. New Republic writer Jared Yates Sexton would later title his full report on the Greensboro rally "American Horror Story," but unlike the fictional TV series, this story is all too real.

While violence and controversy have followed many Trump rallies, Sexton's up-close look at the people attending this political function is every bit as shocking as some of the words uttered by Trump himself, with Mother Jones calling his tweets "frightening." One of the first things that Sexton noted was that there seemed to be a large number of people at the rally who appeared inebriated. He also reported that he saw one woman denied entry because she was too "alternative."

In his full article, Sexton makes the case that journalists need to get into the crowd to really see what's going on, rather than standing in the media pit up front. While Trump has made many statements that are offensive to different ethnic and religious groups, Sexton overheard far worse from Trump's supporters while standing in the crowd.

Upon reading some of Sexton's tweets, a couple in particular bear an eerie resemblance to a video from Pink Floyd's fictional film "The Wall." In the clip, Bob Geldof portrays a very Hitler-esque leader at a rally, calling out various people in the crowd who "don't look right" and ordering security to "get them up against the Wall!" He also points out someone who looks Jewish and an African American and tells the crowd, "If I had my way, I'd have all of you shot!"

Fiction? At the time it was filmed, it was, but according to Sexton, it sounds like life may be imitating art a little too closely. Watch the video for yourself and see what you think.
