A Florida man has been arrested after assaulting his girlfriend in an argument about President Trumps impeachment.
Ernest Ford , 62, from Florida – America, may or may not have been trying to persuade his girlfriend to get the same shade of tan as the POTUS.
After retreating to the back of the property , the altercation became violent when the girlfriend moved towards the 270 pound man. It is entirely possible that she was just trying to move on from the argument and was on her way to the shitter, but because the mobile home they live in is too small Ford assumed she was lunging for a weapon and not the toilet door.
Ford reportedly grabbed the woman and pushed her to the ground where she suffered a grazed knee.
Ford was booked in the Manatee County Jail on a misdemeanor battery charge, and was released after posting a $1,000 bond.
The girlfriend is recovering in hospital but like most in the US health system, is now bankrupt due to the medical cost of a plaster and antiseptic cream.
