Enger spoke with Middletown Police Captain Jason Ryan who said, “The flag was not stolen and video was not captured for the incident,” in direct opposition to the claim made by Mrs. Flynn.
When police became aware of the post, according to Newport This Week, an officer responded to the Flynn household on Tuckerman Avenue. A family member told the officer a “troops for Trump” flag had been removed and thrown on the ground at some point between 10 p.m. and 6 a.m. the previous evening.
Why embellish/make up the story and why say you had video of it when you didn’t?
