Trump should obey the law

Regarding Palm Beach issuing a fine to Donald Trump for flying his huge flag in violation of town laws, they are right, he is wrong. I lived in the area they are speaking of for over 40 years and believe me, you can get tired of Palm Beach snobbishness.
However, an ordinance is an ordinance and just because he is "The Donald" gives him no right to thwart the law. If he wants to let people know he is loyal to America, then he should abide by its laws made by each of its cities and put up a shorter pole and smaller flag.
Does an 80-foot flag pole make him a better citizen? Not if he is going against the law. Donald is so full of himself that he can't see what is the right thing to do. It's not the question of flying the American flag, it's a question of following the law like every other citizen.
