Flag burning was at times used as a form of protest against Trump during his presidential campaign, including by Johnson, who was among 17 demonstrators arrested in Cleveland this July during the Republican National Convention. Johnson spoke to ABC News last month, before the election, on the broader topics of protest and Trump after Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg criticized San Francisco 49ersquarterback Colin Kaepernick for kneeling during pregame performances of the national anthem in what he said is a protest against the treatment of black people in the United States. She later expressed regret for criticizing his protest.
- A certain Civil War blogger is all-a-twitter over President-elect Trump’s recent tweet about jailing flag burners.
- This is yet one more case of someone taking Trump literally, but not seriously. It’s also another example of the moral outrage of the week club.
- You would think these folks would be a bit more concerned about the reality of a bill with teeth filed in the U.S. Senate than they would a tweet by a man who is known for his over the top remarks.
