In response to the recent burning of the American flag by college students in Amherst, Massachusetts, President-elect Donald Trump had strong words for such an act.
Trump posted a Twitter message Tuesday morning, saying, “Nobody should be allowed to burn the American flag – if they do, there must be consequences – perhaps loss of citizenship or year in jail!”
After the Hampshire College students burned the flag, instead of discussing why it should not be burned, the college president made the decision to remove the American flag from the campus, resulting in about a thousand veterans arriving Sunday in protest.

On his “Walk-N-Talk” Facebook Live video Monday, Dennis Michael Lynch suggested the very same consequence – he said anyone who burns the American flag should face jail time. He suggested there’s something twisted about the fact that a person can go to jail for growing marijuana for their own use, but someone else faces no consequence for burning the American flag. DML’s comments on the burning of the American flag start at about the 26 minute mark on the video.
