A Florida supporter of President Donald Trump claims he was punched by a driver and then dragged by the man’s car following an argument over a July 4th Trump flag display.
According to the Sun-Sentinel, Jeff Good said he was watching fireworks from in front of his home when a man pulled up and told him to take down his “Trump — Make America Great Again” flag from his front lawn.
“He was saying vile things about our president,” Good explained in an interview with WPTV.
According to Good,the argument escalated to the point where he says that the driver punched him and that he responded in kind, only to have the driver grab his arm and hit the gas, dragging him down the street before letting him go.
“He took me about 30 feet, until I finally broke loose, and I fell on the ground there,” Good recalled. “He kept on going and disappeared.”
The Florida man said was not seriously injured, showing off scrapes on his hands and legs from the altercation.
“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,” Good explained, adding that he is keeping his flag up.
“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,” said Good.
Boynton Beach Police are searching for the driver, described as an older white man in a silver sedan.

In the rush to innovate for COVID-19 drugs, sound science is still essential
Hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine have been at the center of debate in recent weeks over which drugs should be used to treat COVID-19. Neither product has strong evidence to support use for this purpose, and small studies reported to date have either had significant flaws or failed to demonstrate effect.
Nonetheless, the president can’t seem to stop pushing them, arguing that patients have nothing to lose. As physicians, bioethicists and drug law experts, we have a responsibility to inject caution here. As public officials and scientists rush to innovate, no one should overlook the critical role of strong regulatory protections in supporting our ability to actually figure out which drugs work against COVID-19. Weakening commitment to science and evidence during this crisis truly would be “a cure worse” than the disease.
Increasingly detached Trump frequently fantasizes about proving critics wrong about unproven coronavirus treatment: report
President Donald Trump is leaning on the comfort of Fox News pals, Rudy Giuliani and his family as the coronavirus overwhelms his presidency and keeps him from the campaign trail.
The president has grown even more detached and distrustful of the government he oversees and the medical experts trying to guide him through the pandemic, and he's betting heavily on the antimalarial drug hydroxychloroquine as a miracle cure for the virus, reported The Daily Beast.
America is drinking its way through the coronavirus crisis – that means more health woes ahead
In the midst of the COVID-19 epidemic, it has become easier to buy alcohol than toilet paper or eggs.
Across the U.S., governors are terming alcohol sales an essential business and loosening restrictions to permit home delivery and carryout cocktails, throwing an economic lifeline to one group of small businesses.
