An elderly Florida man’s passionate backing of Donald Trump for President didn’t mesh too well with his wife’s equal passion for Hillary Clinton.

78-year-old Lawrence Littman threw his 73-year-old wife Elvia to the floor during the melee.

The victim called 911 and told responding deputies that during the argument, her husband “called her many derogatory names then grabbed her wrist and threw her on a chair in the bedroom.”

She says she then went into a bedroom on the other side of the house to get away from her husband of 20 years. He then “followed her, grabbed her by the arm again, and slung her to the ground.” She says that she “hurt her butt/backside when she hit the ground.”

Mr. Littman told investigators that they’d been arguing about politics when his wife “tried to slap him in the face,” so he “shoved her back and she slipped and fell to the ground.”

He was taken into custody and charged with battery on a person over 65; a felony.

He pleaded not guilty and was freed on a $500 bond. In the meantime, he’s been ordered to have no contact with his wife.
