I’m afraid I have to agree with McCain on everything but not commenting on Trump. As far as ‘some punishment’ goes, there was a time where the punishment came from being shunned by peers, friends, and family, it was called shame.
As it is with much of the ‘wrong’ today, everything became permissible, then acceptable, and now even condoned as a special class of citizen to protect, this includes Trump’s actions as well as the flag burners.
“I think there should be some punishment, but right now the Supreme Court decision is that people are free to express themselves that way. But I do not approve of it and I think there’s other ways for people to express their views rather than burn a flag that so many Americans fought and died for,” said the Vietnam War veteran and POW.
