Beginning around noon, Matt Kerlin, an unpaid volunteer for the Trump campaign and a student at the University of Pittsburgh, set about engaging students walking to and from class on the Hillman Library sidewalk on Bigelow Boulevard.
Distributing stickers, koozies, and literature, Kerlin was relieved to have attracted many fellow students who pledged to vote Trump. Many students were also relieved to finally have Trump represented on campus amongst the Hillary Clinton campaign and NextGen Climate tables that frequented campus sidewalks.
Surely enough, Kerlin and fellow tabling participants were met with remarks by students such as “f*uck the white male patriarchy!” and “I can’t believe you guys are actually people.” Shortly following, students began to behave aggressively.
“A student came up to us and made a claim about how Trump wants to get rid of “his people”, Kirk Breiner, a Sophomore and tabling participant told The Pitt Maverick.
Kerlin and Breiner were approached and harassed by a man claiming that the table was supporting a “racist” candidate. The man grabbed a stack of door-hanger literature and attempted to run off with them, but Kerlin relinquished the literature unharmed after being stopped a few feet away, though not before the perpetrator nearly initiated a fight with him.
“We responded by telling him that that’s absolutely ridiculous, and then he got agitated and grabbed a stack of literature from our table and ran off with it,” Breiner said.
According to Kerlin and Briener, at approximately 2pm, actions escalated. Two students approached the table, one of them sweeping all the literature to the ground and the other proceeding to flip it before fleeing the scene. Steven Evanovich, a Sophomore at Pitt, captured a video of the student and then proceeded to contact campus police, who are investigating the incident.
