Beating caught on video: Attackers yell 'Don't vote Trump!' | Chicago Sun-Times:
"A YouTube video shows a man being attacked while bystanders yell: "Don't vote Trump."
Chicago Police are investigating the beating of a 50-year-old man that was caught on video Wednesday afternoon in the North Lawndale neighborhood on the West Side, while bystanders taunted him, saying he had voted for Donald Trump.
Officers responded to a battery in the 1100 block of South Kedzie at 12:48 p.m., according to Chicago
The victim told police he was beaten up after a traffic-related argument with three males and two females, police said.
One of the male suspects got in the man’s car and left the scene.
The victim was taken in good condition to Mount Sinai Hospital, police said.
At least three males can be seen in the YouTube video repeatedly punching and kicking a man in a blue sweatshirt. In the background, a man and woman can be heard yelling.
“You voted Trump?” they ask, laughing. 
Then: “Don’t vote Trump!”
Despite those taunts, and the YouTube video headline calling the victim a “Trump voter,” the police did not say how the victim actually voted in the presidential election..."
