Report: College Professor Shot Himself To Protest Trump

Trump Derangement Syndrome has gotten so bad that radical leftists have taken to literally shooting themselves in protest of President Donald Trump.

According to a bizarre report from the Las Vegas Review-Journal, Mark J. Bird, a professor emeritus at the College of Southern Nevada, shot himself in the arm inside a campus bathroom on Aug. 28 – and the story only gets stranger from there:

A 911 call was made after several CSN employees and at least one student saw Bird stumble out of the bathroom, bleeding, before he collapsed, the report said. None of the witnesses — who later told police they only recalled hearing “a loud noise” — initially knew that Bird was armed and had shot himself, according to the [police] report.

One college employee told police that he held Bird’s hand to calm him down as others tried to stop the bleeding. While waiting for authorities to arrive, Bird said he had shot himself in protest of President Donald Trump, police noted in their report. The report did not elaborate.

After arriving at the scene, police found a black and white .22 pistol and a spent shell casing on the bathroom floor. Additionally, they found a $100 bill taped to a bathroom mirror along with a note that said, “For the janitor.”

However, whatever statement Bird was trying to make by idiotically shooting himself backfired. He faces several felony charges, including discharging a gun within a prohibited structure, carrying a concealed weapon without a permit, and possessing a dangerous weapon on school property. A preliminary hearing on the case is scheduled for Sept. 17.

Furthermore, we may never know exactly what Bird was “protesting” because, unsurprisingly, CSN did their best to sweep the entire incident under the rug. The day of the shooting, a campus-wide alert was issued around 9:00 a.m. – 45 minutes after Bird was found – but all it said was that the scene was safe and the firearm had been recovered. The incident was not mentioned again save for a brief blip at the end of the September edition of “The Chronicle,” the college president’s monthly newsletter emailed to staff.

Even more infuriating, Bird is still employed by CNS – and he allegedly teaches “Human Behavior,” of all things.

Unless Bird is sacrificing himself as a living example of precisely how humans shouldn’t behave, there’s no reason he should be teaching Human Behavior, or any other class, at any college anywhere, ever.
