Trump addressed the incident, which interrupted his speech.

“You all right? Everything OK?” said Trump, who has called the media the “enemy of the people.” He also gave the thumbs up sign, which was either to tell the media that they were ok, or the sign that kings give at the end of gladiator fights to say that they will spare the fallen fighter’s life.


“Look at all the press,” he said as the crowd roared “boo,” The New York Post reports.

Skeans’ colleague Gary O’Donoghue said Monday night that this wasn’t the first time the press has been singled out or attacked during a Trump rally.


“This is a constant feature of these rallies—a goading of the crowds against the media,” he said, The Post reports. “I have been spat at before, they hurl abuse at American colleagues in particular.”
