A Boynton Beach, Florida man says that he was punched in the face while he watched July Fourth fireworks — all because someone had a problem with the Trump flag that was displayed in his yard.

Jeff Good’s neighbor posted about the incident on Facebook on Thursday.
The Daily Caller reports,
Good later described what had allegedly happened to local news station WPTV, saying that the attack came out of nowhere as he watched fireworks.
“He was saying vile things about our president,” said Good.
The driver of the car then told Good he had to remove his flag. When Good told him no, he said the driver punched him in the face.
Good said he instinctively tried to punch the man back but the man drove off with Good’s arm stuck in the car, and Good was then dragged for about 30 feet.
“I have some bumps and bruises that I don’t think you want to see,” said Good as he was showing the scars on his hands and elbow.
Good said that his political goal was simple — he just wanted to show support for the president — and the violent attack was unnecessary.
My political goal here is just to express my love for this president and for somebody to punch you in the face for just presenting the flag to the public, that is enough said right there.
For good measure, Good declared that he had no intention of taking the flag down any time soon. “He still will be the president tomorrow and the day after so might as well keep the flag there today tomorrow and the day after.”
Good’s assault marks just the latest in what is becoming a long string of verbal and physical attacks against Trump supporters.
