Trump Immigration Plan Causes Fight, Roommate Loses Ear

Donald Trump's plans are already generating fear and loathing, resulting in violence.

In Pittsburgh, PA, a Mexican college student who is legally in the U.S. listened to Trump on TV (while drinking beer) and got in an argument with his roommate, biting off his ear and breaking his finger. It seems the assaultive roommate feared being deported. Luckily, the assaulted roommate made his way to a gas station to call police. His ear was recovered in the room and stitched back on. The assaulting roommate is gone. Both come form Mexico.

To paraphrase Trump's probable response: "What did you expect? People are angy."

    A crazy, uninformed, drunken Trump hater gets violent and it's Trump's fault? That's more than a stretch.

    Complaining about everything isn't going to be as effective as focusing on fewer, more substantial things.... like healthcare and jobs.

    Stories like this one will only help Trump.

    anything anyone says that is critical of captain cheeto is only going to help him. You are as delusional as he is. Cap'n cheeto is a danger to the future of the entire planet. In just the last week he has shown that he has no grasp on reality. He exists in an alternative universe made of alternate facts. What happens when he becomes convinced that China or N. Korea is planning to attack us. Even though at a given time there is no evidence or proof that it is happening, it could become a reality in his addled brain. Because if he believes it, it must be true or real. And just accepting it like you do, is, well, unacceptable.

    Yeah. but don't you see??? (5.00 / 1) (#7)

    ... "hater" or "crazy" (as opposed to drunk), but it's always amusing when a Trump supporter says they want to focus on "substantive issues".  Makes me wonder if they've ever heard of the gut they put in office.

    Complaining about everything isn't going to be as effective as focusing on fewer, more substantial things.... like healthcare and jobs.

    When Mr. Obama wanted to focus on these things, all we heard from the GOP was complaints.

    There was this thing, THE AFFORDABLE CARE ACT, which was a focus on healthcare.  All we heard from the GOP were complaints of the sort you decry.

    Do you remember the unemployment rate when Mr., Obama took office?  Remember how Romney was going to reduce it to something like 7%, but Obama reduced it EVEN MORE.  Are you satisfied that Mr. Obama exceeded the unemployment goal set by the GOP, or are you complaining?

    This just in.  The GOP does not want you or me to have health care or a job, so there is no reason to credit them for it.  When the GOP is in the WH, unemployment goes up and health care is ignored.

    Apparently you have forgotten EVERYTHING THAT HAPPENED over the last 16 years.  And now you want to repeat all the bad stuff.  How do you rationalize this insanity?

    I would not suggest that you hate America.  It's more like you don't care about your fellow Americans.

    When he is convicted of felony assault, he will be deported then unless he is already a citizen.  Irony.
