On Tuesday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Hardball,” former Representative Barney Frank (D-MA) quipped that Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia “was actually the leading advocate of fag-burning, not flag burning,” which caused confusion for President-Elect Donald Trump.
Frank, after noting that Justice Antonin Scalia opposed bans on flag-burning, said Trump “cited Scalia as his favorite judge. I think there was a pronunciation problem there. Scalia was actually the leading advocate of fag-burning, not flag-burning, and I think that’s where he got himself a little confused.”
