Trump Supporter Who Chanted "Jew-S-A" Says We Just Misheard Him

George Lindell, who previously went viral in a 2011 local news clip, told BuzzFeed News that he was really saying "U-S-A."

A man at a Donald Trump rally in Phoenix caught national headlines on Saturday for chanting what sounded like "Jew-S-A" at members of the media.

So this just happened near the press pen at Trump's Phoenix rally. Man chanting "Jew.S.A.!"

Accusing the media of being part of a Jewish conspiracy that's trying to rig politics has been a consistent claim among anti-Semites and white nationalists — and it has continued this election cycle.

The man was called "deplorable" by Trump's campaign. "I think what he had to say was disgusting," Kellyanne Conway told CNN.

The man is George Lindell, a 51-year-old Phoenix resident who went viral in 2011 for his hilarious description of being in a car accident. "Reality hits you hard, bro," Lindell told a local TV reporter.

Given Lindell's previous 15 minutes of fame, a new conspiracy claimed he was paid off by the Clinton campaign to make Trump look bad.

A racist? A Clinton plant? None of that's true, Lindell told BuzzFeed News. "That's the way I say USA," he said.
