A furious war veteran confronted a Connecticut town official who took a knee during the Pledge of the Allegiance at a community meeting Monday to protest President Donald Trump.
Calvin Bunnell, a Vietnam War veteran, was unable to stay silent after watching Haddam Selectman Melissa Schlag kneel while the rest of the room stood proudly. He stood and delivered a blistering message to Schlag.
"As it says on my shirt, if you don't like the flag I'll help you pack your bags and get the heck out of here," Bunnell said.
He added, “When you kneeled and turned your back on that flag, you turned your back on half of this town.”

In an interview on “Fox & Friends,” Bunnell said Schlag should resign from her position.
"When I first went into elementary school, that was the first thing they taught us, respect for the flag,” he said. “When she does something like that, she is not representing the constituents of that town in the right way.”
But it gets even worse.
Schlag was recently busted by a hot mic calling her own constituents in the town “fascist and racist.”
“This town is fascist and racist,” she is heard saying on video.
The Republican state senator representing the town, Art Linares, has also called on Schlag to resign over the shocking comment.
