They face trespassing and larceny charges.

Deputies in Florida said two doctors stole a campaign flag supporting President Donald Trump from their neighbor’s property.

Geoffrey Michael Fraiche, 41, and Laura Ann Webb-Fraiche, 38, allegedly took the flag on April 7 while their two children were with them, news outlets reported. A Santa Rosa County Sheriff’s report said they used a ladder to pull it down.

Both Fraiche and Webb-Fraiche are gynecologists working in different Pensacola hospitals, WKRG-TV reported. They were charged with several crimes, including trespassing and larceny, and released from the county jail.

Fraiche said in a text message on Wednesday that he was preparing a statement for the media, but didn’t have an immediate comment.

The district’s Republican U.S. Rep. Matt Gaetz tweeted Tuesday that their actions showed “despicable parenting.” He included a version of a surveillance video with captions added that said their older child asked them to stop.

“Apparently two medical degrees lack the decency & common sense of a child,” Gaetz added.

    As if Gaetz himself is smarter than a child.

    And this couple should be given a community award for ridding the neighborhood of the blight of the symbol of a racist, misogynistic, coltish con man. Obviously the police and neighbors over reacted but the owners were just channeling the crying paranoia of their beloved leader.

      Why not publish your address Pedro, since you think theft is justifiable? You’re just another hypocrite Democrat who thinks laws don’t apply to them.

        I guess you think your boy Gatez is OK with breaking and entering? Lots of us are just sick of trump and his cult. You got a lot of gall to say anything about these folks.

    LMFAO! It’s actually the Very Stable Genius (he has a lot of very beautiful words) who lacks the decency and common sense of a child.

    Does Gaetz even hear himself talking? I guess not bc hard to hear anything so far up tRump’s behind.

    Heroes! We have few real heroes anymore. These two patriots certainly qualify. Trying to do what they can to return the White House to the American people and evict Russia’s agent, President Grab ’em by the Pussy. More acts of selfless partiotism like this and just maybe their children will still have a county when they grow up.

    How much did they bond out on? I want to know more. Do they expect to keep their present employment if convicted of theft? Where is the flag now? What was the damage done to the flag pole? Why are they so pissed at Trump to commit robbery (assuming they are guilty)? Why is the motivation that strong? So much more to this story. Why isn’t Florida Times on it like Bill on Monica?

    Laura, the 38 year old misandrist, has her first orgasm over Donald J. Trump. “Yes, Baby, Yes!” This is one for the psycho research books in 2020. My God, what hysteria! No wonder Rex Stout wrote what he wrote.

    Just think, under government run healthcare, these will be the types of doctors operating on you.
