    After a Hispanic man was beaten Wednesday by two Boston men, one of whom told the police that he was inspired by Donald J. Trump’s anti-immigrant message, Mr. Trump told reporters that his supporters were “passionate.”

    Two brothers from South Boston were arrested and charged with beating the 58-year-old man, who is homeless, with a metal pole, breaking his nose and battering his chest and arms, The Boston Globe reported.

    “Donald Trump was right, all these illegals need to be deported,” the police said one of the brothers, Scott Leader, 38, told them. His brother, Steve Leader, 30, was also charged in the beating, the police said. The Globe reported that the brothers have extensive criminal records.

    Told of the attack, which also left the man soaked in urine, Mr. Trump said at a news conference late Wednesday that it was the first he had heard of it.

    “It would be a shame,” Mr. Trump said, before adding: “I will say that people who are following me are very passionate. They love this country and they want this country to be great again. They are passionate.”

    The episode is not the first time that Mr. Trump’s inflammatory comments have been cited in connection with violence.

    Following his public feud after the Republican presidential debate with Megyn Kelly, the Fox News anchor, she received death threats from Mr. Trump’s fans and the cable network provided her with additional security.

    Mr. Trump brushed off the idea that his supporters were crossing the line.

    “I’m sure they don’t mean that,” he said in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter. “I had heard that had happened. But I have gained such respect for the people that like me and respect me and that like my views, it’s incredible.”

    Of course not, but he calls them passionate for beating the crap out of an old man.

    It's a stretch. He was speaking generally about his followers and not about this specific incident. You don't have to like him but he never endorsed the incident.

    Not condemning the incident or calling out the people for being the ignorant scum that they are and instead calling them "passionate" = endorsing.

    Anyone considering voting for Trump should really watch "Idiocracy," just once. That's what you're voting for.

    Don't play that game. The reporter told him about the quote and he said his fans are "passionate".
    Did he tell anyone to beat up minorities? No.
    But feeding the xenophobia of the not-so-bright is going to spur stuff like this.
    It's not Trumps fault, but he coulda been a human about it and condemned this horrible beating instead of condoning it.

    Me being offended and wanting censorship is an even bigger stretch. I just respectfully disagreed with something you said.

    He never endorsed anything like this. It has nothing to do with him. He has no reason or responsibility to comment on it. should the author of catcher in the rye have apologized for mark david chapman's actions because some retard misconstrued his words?

    And today he talked about the "beautiful" wall he's going to build...it's going to be magnificent! It will be called the Trump Wall because it will be so fantastic. Drinking game idea...every time he says "Did you know I went to Wharton"; "I called Carl Icahn" and "I'm rich...really, really rich" you take a shot...you'll be drunk in no time.

    I love watching people that are worshiping him like a god, it certainly fills the forum with much needed entertainment.
