An NYPD ex cop sustained some injury after getting beat up by a woman who mistook his hat for a MAGA hat.
Daniel Sprague, a retired ex cop from Staten Island was celebrating 50th birthday with his wife and friends at The Stage on Broadway on Friday when a woman he didn’t know assaulted him.
The hat he was wearing represented his 50th birthday and read “Make 50 great again.”
He told the New York Post:
“At first I thought it was a friend until I got hit. I couldn’t believe someone could get that upset. All night people were giving me thumbs up, smiles or some showing rage, until they walked up close and saw what hat said. Then they would wish me a happy birthday.”
The man did admit to being a Trump supporter, saying he loves Trump.
“I love Trump, but I wouldn’t hit someone who had a Bernie hat on. Everyone is entitled to their opinion. I wasn’t an Obama fan but if he walked into a place where I was, I would show him and the office respect.”
The Metropolitan Nashville Police Department took a report on the incident.
The cops confirmed the woman left him bleeding on his face and a bruise around his eye.
People on social media cheered the woman on after finding out he was a Trump supporter anyway.
