This is America now. An argument between Pittsburgh roommates about Donald Trump ended with a man getting his ear bitten off.
The ear-biter reportedly was enraged because he believed Trump was going to deport him back to Mexico. Is that prospect more frightening than landing in jail for chomping on your roommate? I guess it is.
The 30-year-old victim was bitten at his apartment at around 6:45 a.m. Monday in the city’s East Liberty neighborhood after a verbal argument turned physical. He ran to a gas station for help.
Police spokeswoman Emily Schaffer says she isn’t able to say whether the victim supported Trump or opposed him.
The victim’s ear was recovered by police in the apartment. Police say he was taken to UPMC Presbyterian hospital in stable condition.
The attacker is on the run but police know who he is.
People seriously need to chill out.
