The Trump tweet heard 'round the country:
Nobody should be allowed to burn the American flag - if they do, there must be consequences - perhaps loss of citizenship or year in jail!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 29, 2016
The operative word here is "perhaps." Trump is tossing out a thought that should be disregarded.
PRESIDENT-ELECT DONALD TRUMP: Nobody should be allowed to burn the American flag - if they do, there must be consequences - perhaps loss of citizenship or year in jail!
GET A GRIP!
There is no way burning the American flag would ever result in loss of citizenship or a jail sentence.
That act is protected under the Constitution.
Relax, flag burners and desecrators. You don't have to worry about losing your right to express your loathing for America and Americans.
Personally, I find American flag burners to be deplorable.
What's so nuts is that the people expressing their disdain for America by burning our flag have the right to do so because they're Americans. Very twisted.
I think burning the flag is a powerful statement and very revealing.
The people who do it tell a lot about themselves, and that revelation is good to know.
