Now, personally speaking, I don't give a crap about respecting a piece of fabric. It's a silly primitive tradition that belongs with other silly primitive traditions, like sacrificing a goat so rain will come. The funny part of all of this is that Trump took such a massive hissy fit over sports players knealing to the flag during a sports game, and then committed an actual offense by SITTING through a flag ceremony at a military event.
The Republican party is the party of hypocrisy, hillarity, and whiney bitchery.
But anyway, this American youtuber seems to have covered the story best:
I describe myself as a little dose of toxic masculinity.
