Nobody should be allowed to burn the American flag – if they do, there must be consequences – perhaps loss of citizenship or year in jail!

Justice Scalia cast the deciding vote that said burning the flag is protected speech under the First Amendment.
But Donald Trump doesn’t give a rip about the First Amendment. And he is going to be President.
I know, I know. He pops off like this and everybody gets spun up, and you feel like an idiot.
Except — did I mention this part? — he is going to be the President. And this is, quite simply, insane talk.
Ken White lets him have it, with humor, here.
