Kelley, who said he’s a Vietnam-era veteran, said that prompted a protest where he only wore a cowboy hat, boots and waved the American flag, the newspaper reported.

“My dad told me years ago if you’ve got a stubborn mule, you’ve got to hit him across the head with a 2-by-4 in order to get his attention,” Kelley said.
