Comments: The Dark Side of Populism

I agree that flag burning should not be illegal, even though it is apparently so in both Germany and Italy.

I am also 100 percent certain that it will never become illegal. There is no appetite for such in Congress.

So, why does he say this? Bully pulpit. Change the climate of anti-Americanism in, of all places, America. That's the best mansplaining Trump apology I can offer.

I think the most likely explanation is that Trump was just being a loose cannon, but I wouldn't entirely rule out the possibility that he knew Clinton co-sponsored a bill to ban flag burning and is trolling the progs.
