A Trump-supporting father-and-son duo clashed with voters on Election Day outside of a Brooklyn polling site as the dad threatened to put one man “in the hospital,” online videos of the altercation show.
The wild incident unfolded at around 10 a.m. Tuesday morning outside of MS 88 on 7 Avenue near 18th Street in Park Slope as locals lined up to cast their vote in the 2020 US presidential election.
Eric Nocera and his adult son, who arrived to the polling site in a white Jeep decked out with pro-Trump flags and signage, were accused of trying to intimidate voters in line, videos posted to Twitter show.
In one clip, a man is seen flagging down police officers who were on site as Nocera’s son stood in the street facing him.
“I’m not doing anything illegal,” Nocera’s son said as he explained that he’s 100-feet from the building.
The son then claimed that the man flipped the bird to him.
“It’s my freedom of speech…you don’t like it? That’s too bad. Go cast your ballot,” the son said.
Then, Eric Nocera steps in and tells the man to “go get some Vagisil,” the two-minute Twitter video shows.
“Vagisil for your vagina. Go get some! Cause I know it’s itchy and it’s hurting,” Nocera barked to the man, prompting him to say, “Oh, you wanna’ grab my p—y is that what you’re saying? Come grab my p—y. Come grab my f–king p—y, you punk-ass bitch.”
Nocera then snapped back, “Little gay boy, go away,” before telling his son to, “Leave this cuck alone” — a reference to the right-wing meme of calling political opponents cuckolds.
“Oh, now I’m a cock or a vag? Which is it? you can’t figure it out because you don’t know the difference because you’re the f–king gay boy motherf—er,” the man retorted, apparently mistaking “cuck” for “cock.”
Nocera told the man to “say it to my face,” before he shouted, “I’ll put you in the hospital,” according to the clip.
During the altercation several cops were on scene and one assured the man who was threatened by Nocera that “nothing is going to happen to you,” the footage shows.
Kathy Park Price, 46, a Park Slope resident and a volunteer Election Observer who posted part of the incident to Twitter, told cops that Nocera was “threatening physical violence.”
Price later told The Post that Nocera “started yelling at us,” and suspected that his truck was within 100-feet from the polling site.
In New York, electioneering within 100 feet of polling place is prohibited.
“He crossed the line when he threatened physical violence,” Price claimed.
Nocera told The Post that voters in line cursed at him and his son and flipped the bird when they showed up in their pro-Trump-adorned Jeep to vote at the location.
The NYPD said in a tweet Tuesday that officers responded to the MS 88 polling site “for a dispute.”
“A vehicle supporting one candidate was reported to be within 100 feet of the location. Upon investigation, the vehicle was an appropriate distance away. There was no interference with voting,” the department said.
