    A Hispanic Trump supporter was attacked and called a racist at a post office in Chula Vista, Calif., by a fellow customer who was triggered by her “Make America Great Again” hat. Paloma Zuniga said she was dropping off some packages at the USPS office on Saturday when "this mad woman cursed at me and told me I should be ashamed for wearing that hat" as she walked by. Zuniga, who is a dual U.S. and Mexican citizen, told PJ Media by email that she then turned on her cellphone and started recording because "we go through this abuse often...

    It began when Palo Alto resident Rebecca Parker Mankey attempted to shame an elderly white man wearing a red Make America Great Again hat as he sat in the coffeehouse — an encounter she later wrote about on social media. Calling him a "hater of brown people," Mankey said she yelled at him and addressed Starbucks customers and employees to join her in her effort. She said she left the store but soon returned and continued to yell at him. Mankey said she was "heartbroken" that other white people didn't stand up against the man wearing what has become for...

    I always start these by noting that I didn't vote for Trump, and I don't like Trump. He's been lackluster. Like the guy before him, he's done a couple of things I support, several I'm ambivalent about, and a bunch that are very disturbing in their unwarranted expansion of Executive power. And it's really hard to make that point when self-proclaimed "liberals" are shitting their pants in tantrums daily, for over two years now, about bullshit like Russian birth certificates and mythical impeachments that will never happen. The latest as everyone knows is some kids at the Right to Life...

    I’ve noticed many pundits, in the fallout from the Covington boys vs. the Native American incident, saying that the kids shouldn’t have worn MAGA hats. I’ve seen it said over and over, mainly by people walking back previous vicious comments about the boys and trying to balance it by now saying “well, they shouldn’t have been wearing the hats.” Others have chimed in, too, for example this member of Congress. I kid you not: Rep. John Yarmuth ✔ @RepJohnYarmuth I am calling for a total and complete shutdown of teenagers wearing MAGA hats until we can figure out what is...

    In a largely expected decision, the Supreme Court today ruled that the government cannot restrict a person’s clothing choices while they are voting. The ruling came down 7-2, and perhaps the margin was a bit of a surprise, but the First Amendment arguments made by the majority are not. It’s entirely consistent with majoritarian First Amendment views that white people can harass and intimidate black people — especially black people who dare to try to vote — in a myriad of ways as long as they don’t get physical. Freedom! As long as the whites don’t actually throw the banana...

"That's a racist and hateful symbol," Butler said. She is now facing two counts of battery, one on her classmate and one on her teacher, who deputies say she slapped as he escorted her from the room.

    Fired manager Darin Hodge said the issue erupted when he asked a customer to take off their MAGA hat. In an emailed statement, he said he would do it again. “I stand by my decision to ask the patron to remove his hat. The MAGA hat has come to symbolize racism, bigotry, islamaphobia [sic], misogyny, white supremacy, homophobia. As a person with a strong moral backbone, I had to take a stand against this guest’s choice of headwear while in my former place of work,” he wrote.

    A reporter at a Massachusetts-based newspaper resigned Friday after falsely claiming in a tweet Thursday that the man who killed five employees at the Capital Gazzete newspaper left a “Make America Great Again” hat at the crime scene. “Shooter who killed 4 people at Annapolis newspaper dropped his #MAGA hat on newsroom floor before opening fire,” Conor Berry, a reporter at The Republican in Springfield, Mass., wrote in a now-deleted tweet. Berry, who covered politics and crime for The Republican, apologized for the “stupid” and “regrettable” tweet Friday, adding that it made his 21-year career as a journalist come to...

    An extremely rare ‘bicorne,’ or 2-pointed hat, that was worn by Napoleon at the battle of Waterloo was sold at auction in France for $325,000 on Monday. The hat went under the hammer for €280,000 ($325,052) at Lyon-based auction house De Baecque. The bicorne had a pre-sale estimate of €30,000 to €40,000 ($34,881 to $46,441). De Baecque told Fox News that the hat was bought by a private European collector who is "passionate" about the period of the First French Empire. The bloody battle of Waterloo, fought on June 18, 1815, saw Napoleon’s forces defeated by a British-led allied army....

    Hillary Clinton says she’s “still” not over the 2016 election, and she showed it Sunday during a speech at Yale — cracking a joke about Kremlin interference and busting out a large Russian hat to boot. “If you can’t beat them, join them,” Clinton quipped. The jab came during her commencement speech at Yale’s Class Day. Keeping up with the university’s longstanding tradition of bringing an “over the top hat” to the ceremony, Clinton pulled out a black Ushanka and playfully went to put it on. “I see looking out at you that you are following the tradition of over-the-top...

    Hillary Clinton took subtle jabs at President Trump during her Class Day speech at Yale, which she began by pulling out a Russian hat in an apparent reference to the ongoing investigation into Russian election meddling. The former secretary of State and 2016 Democratic presidential nominee noted the over-the-top hats students traditionally wear during Yale's Class Day and said she "brought a hat too." "A Russian hat," Clinton said on Sunday while showing the laughing crowd an Ushanka hat. "If you can't beat them, join them," she added.

    Billy the Kid is a tourist draw in parts of New Mexico. Now a New Mexico hat-maker is hoping to capitalize on the outlaw’s fashion sense, namely his hat. The legend of Billy the Kid dates back more than a century, and in every picture that has surfaced of the cowboy there’s been one thing in common, his hat. “A lot of people thought that the hat he was wearing was a prop that the photographer gave him,” Kenny Bratcher said, “but a guy like Billy the Kid, I think would’ve worn his own hat.” Kenny Bratcher has been making...
