A bistro in Brooklyn, New York is outraged after a man punched a woman in the face just because she is a Hillary Clinton supporter.
In yet another incident of Trump supporters doing whatever they want just because their candidate won the election, a man literally assaulted a woman at Bar Tabac and ran away like a little coward just because the woman dared to criticize Donald Trump.
The woman and her three friends were discussing the election and expressing their criticism of Trump when a man seated near them butted in to argue with them. The argument became so heated that the women asked to be moved to a different table but the restaurant ended up moving the man and his friend instead.
After leaving the bistro, the man ran back inside and sucker-punched the woman in the face before fleeing the scene.
“This is a packed Saturday night—it’s not like we’re keeping tabs on everybody—but as far as we know everything is going perfectly,” bartender Blake Drost explained before describing what he witnessed. “The couple finishes, gets the check and leaves. The guy runs back in, past four or five tables, and punches this woman square in the face, then runs out.”
Manager Jonas Leon backed up Drost’s description and added more details.
“The guy came back almost running, and he started pushing some customer and the high-chair next to him with the baby because he couldn’t reach the girl. Then he punched the girl.” And then the man yelled, “You don’t know who I am!” and ran off.
Bar Tabac issued a statement condemning the violent outburst.
We at Bar Tabac do not condone violence of any type or manner, especially in our own establishment; to the tough guy who assaulted a female patron of ours on Saturday night over a political conversation: Once the law is done with you, do not come back to Bar Tabac (this includes your partner). At a point in this nation when tensions are highest we need to come together now more than ever, we apologize to any customers who had to witness this vulgar outburst.
Police are investigating the assault and hopefully they will catch this little bastard and put him in jail where he belongs.
