A town official in Haddam, Connecticut faced backlash from the community members for kneeling on two separate occasions during the Pledge of Allegiance before Board of Selectmen meetings.
The first time Melissa Schlag, a Democrat, knelt for the pledge was on July 16, just hours after President Trump concluded his first bilateral meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki.
She was in a room only with other town officials, but the moment was caught on camera. She knelt again on Monday in front of a few hundred rowdy audience members, who showed up in anticipation of another show of protest,
Schlag said while the crowd booed “I don’t have to stop my free speech when I walk into a selectmen’s meeting.”
