Flat Spot on Tire

I picked up a 1990 Toyota Camry for my Daughter. I did several repairs to get it in shape and had the tires rotated. After the rotation there was a thumping noise in the right front. I went back and had it checked. The mechanic says the tire has a flat spot. He says it will thump but is safe and recommended I ignore the noise.

What is your opinion of this in regards to safety?
