WASHINGTON -- Supporters of Donald Trump rallying in Miami heckled reporters on Wednesday with anti-Semitic taunts, accusing them of selling out "for a few shekels" and being an embarrassment to the journalistic profession.

Clad in "Make America Great Again!" gear, the vocal supporter was flanked by several others who appeared to support his statements.
Anti-Semitic epithets have become a common occurrence at Trump rallies. Last week, one supporter in Arizona turned to the media and chanted "Jew-S-A." Swastika signs have repeatedly been left in media pens along the GOP nominee's campaign trail, and last month, a Nazi slur, "Lügenpresse," meaning "lying press," was shouted at another Trump event in Ohio.


"You're a shame to your profession," the Trump supporter repeated. "You sell out for a few shekels. For a few shekels, you sell out."

Trump himself has warned of a vast conspiracy, orchestrated by "the media" and "international bankers," intended to rig the election in favor of his opponent, Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.
