Big Picture Politics Panel: Angela Morabito, & Zaid Jilani, The Intercept. Another day – another bizarre — and frankly constitution-defying– tweet from Donald Trump. At 6:55 this morning — a time when most Americans were either still sleeping or just getting out of bed — the man who will in less than two months take over the leadership of the so-called free world sent out this message from his Twitter account: “Nobody should be allowed to burn the American flag – if they do, there must be consequences – perhaps loss of citizenship or year in jail!.” That’s right. Not only does Trump think flag-burning should be illegal – he also thinks people who do burn the flag should lose EVERY RIGHT THEY HAVE AS AN AMERICAN. This might sound like more Trumpian bluster – but it’s not.
