Bitkoffer responded to a photo in a previous post that showed a modest one-story house in Los Angeles with three flags in the garage: the American flag, the pro-Trump flag and the “Impeach Biden” flag. Sitting outside the garage is an old cream car. The original poster captioned the photo: “Recognized in Los Angeles, Funny Neighbors.”
