do not buy your beer in the hood

The door on my crappy car got bent. It no longer makes a tight seal, and it is supposed to rain heavily for the next few days. Can I bend it back?

To make this as brief as possible, an unhinged/angry/high/mental/whoknowswhat man opened my car door and repeatedly pushed it forward as I tried to leave a parking lot at my local hood liquor store. The window was down, and now the top corner no longer makes a seal with the body of the car. The window seals up just fine, but it is beginning to rain and leak between the window frame and the body of the car. I'm not spending any more money on this car (currently saving for the new one and running this one into the ground as it already needs thousands in repairs to the engine and body.) However, I don't want to sit in a wet car seat. The gap is maybe half an inch or so if even that. Is it possible he bent the spring in the door, and not the window frame? Any solutions or suggestions? If it helps, 2 door honda accord mid nineties.
I could tell the whole story of what happened, but I'd just rather get on and past the crazy in my life.
