From Boy Scouts of America:
Under Title 4, Chapter1, § 8, paragraph k of the US Code (often referred to as the Flag Code) it states:
"The flag, when it is in such condition that it is no longer a fitting emblem for display, should be destroyed in a dignified way, preferably by burning."

What about eating the flag?
It's all about keeping the base fluffed.
I vote that we ignore Trump's continued distractions and try to focus on what he is actually going to do. He's won the election by dropping strawmen all over the place. He really is just like Vladimir Putin.
My main questions:
His trillion dollar stimulus - Since he contradicts promises every other week so that nobody ever knows what's happening, we can only speculate that a) it's all going to be in the form of military spending and tax cuts which won't so shit to help the people he promised to help or b) he will essentially pitch the above with the American Jobs Act tied to it, in which case he will be clashing with the GOP in the Senate unless they decide to be hypocrites and vote for New Deal style policies. This will be an interesting schism to see unfold.
Repealing free trade laws - This has been all talk so far but if he actually does this markets will freak out and giant corporations will revolt. The majority of the GOP designed these very laws; they were part of compromises they made with Bill Clinton and they were behind them with Obama too. I can't believe the GOP would suddenly decide to be the party of trade isolationism, so I expect this to be the first major heartbreak of the poor white folks who thought he would save their lives. NAFTA isn't going anywhere. Are you fucking kidding me?
War - He hasn't spoken at all about this but many people voted for Trump believing for some reason that he was an isolationist while on the other hand he spoke about bombing the shit out of everyone and spreading nukes around the world. I don't think he's going to stop drone strikes. If anything he'll be using terrorism every chance he can to distract and confuse.
I can see nothing but people getting pissed off for the next 4 years, but also plenty of the worst subterfuge, incompetence and corruption that will have ever been witnessed before. Worse than Reagan, worse than Clinton, worse than Bush Junior.
Flag burning, shocking tweets, performance art. I don't care about this shit, it's meant to exhaust people. It's as meaningless as trying to stop the Indiana factory from closing. Symbolic Putin-style propaganda garbage.
Eating the flag was the first thing I thought of, too.
"I would gladly eat a flag myself, had I not used my intestine as a rope to hoist a flag made of my own skin, if it would protect the freedoms of the proud people who salute that flag. Freedom such as polygamy."

I cant begin to imagine how end times fucked we would be if a major terrorist attack hit on his watch.

Haven't there been not one, but multiple supreme court rulings on this already?
Boy Trump is in for a rude awakening when someone finally breaks the news to him that the First Amendment exists.
Kid, I OWN the supreme court!
Besides, they couldn't match up the gun that killed your old man!

Fuck you. I'll burn as many symbols as I like.

How about Led Zeppelin's "Symbols" album? Would that go up in flames? It has "When the Levee Breaks" on it!

Would rather have Skynet as president.

It's good to see how quickly people rediscover freedom of speech the moment Republicans reclaim the government. Trump isn't even in power yet, and we're already back to Lefties being the ones going "but muh constitution!" and Righties responding with "living document, bitches!"
By this time next year, I expect to see campus conservatives moving to classify flag-burning as hate speech, while alt-left Truthers rant about how dangerous those damn Social Injustice Warriors are.
