Two reporters for the conservative Right Side Broadcasting Network who were covering former President Donald Trump's "Get Out the Vote Rally" in Miami, Florida on Sunday said that Americans who "disrespect" the flag should either emigrate or be kicked out of the United States.

"Just leave the country. You hate the country? Just go ahead and move and, and, and, leave," declared the gentleman.

"I can't understand having that much hatred in your heart... for the American flag," added correspondent Vanessa Broussard. "You are absolutely right. You do not belong in this country and uh, look, I'll just put you on the bus," she continued, alluding to Republican Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, whom Broussard giddily proclaimed "rents out and tell 'em, 'get 'em outta here.' Because you don't belong here. American citizens who don't respect their own country, that's just disgraceful."
