President Trump is an extremely polarizing character who has said some insanely insensitive things about some very sensitive issues. While I condemn attacks on ANYONE, full stop - regardless of party, you have to understand how strongly people feel about the issues he has taken a stand on and realize that you are promoting those by wearing that hat. I'm not saying it's right, I'm just telling you how some view the world.

Parking your car outside Fenway with a giant Yankees decal on the back is probably not a brilliant move. People get charged up about certain things and politics is one of them. This is the first time in my lifetime that a president has come up with an article of clothing that people can wear to show their support. It's brilliant marketing, but you need to be cognizant of the messages you are sending by participating in that marketing.

I don't want to know your political beliefs when you're walking down the street. It just seems like a weird thing to broadcast.

If you were wearing it in support of Reagan, ok. If you wore an "I like Ike" hat back in the day, no big deal. But the wearing of the MAGA hat now makes the majority of americans think you are ok with a president who lies and distorts the truth, and people think you are supporting an unethical and immoral person. And you believe Trumps BS about fake news, the deep state, and qanon.

Seems.

They make red, white, blue and yellow hats. The even make white visors.

AND OMG...ribbons for young girls to put in their hair.

If you are looking to be offended...everything offends. Jeez man. C'mon.

Not exactly the same thing. People associate the hat with building walls, kids in cages, "good people on both sides," Mexicans are rapists, etc, etc. Wanting to marry the person you love does not infer that you dislike someone else.

Never said I was offended one iota. I find any type of bumper sticker opinions to be odd.

You just admitted that you are in fact a victim of demonization by the media.
Clinton and Obama both discussed and had to deal with the things you listed but weren't assassinated by the MSM for it.

You guys are super dim today. I am telling you HOW IT IS PERCEIVED. That is a very different thing from how I, personally, perceive it.

Well, hat tip to you but you're in the minority. The relentless label pasting, twisting of words and outright falsehoods by the media FROM DAY ONE worked. It's not being dim, it's just the opposite.

A grown ass woman going up and gashing a complete strangers head because of a hat. This is psychological brainwashing at work.

In this context it is basic reading comprehension. I clearly stated "People associate the hat with..." and you jumped down my throat with "You just admitted that you are in fact a victim of demonization by the media."

That is EXACTLY the type of "label pasting, twisting of words and outright falsehoods" that you claim do despise. It happens on both sides and you are proving that point perfectly. You didn't even understand what I wrote yet your itchy trigger-finger hit the keyboard.
