The “global warming” continues to wreak havoc with my MAGA hat activities. It is 8 degrees this morning as I head to work, with a high of 17 predicted. Am definitely wearing my warm shearling Cabela’s hat, but will carry my MAGA hat with me so I can switch back and forth according to where I am.
I switch to my MAGA hat when I arrive at the ferry terminal. Today I’m in the mood to try to see if there are any reactions, so I casually walk around not ignoring people. I don’t notice any overt anti-hat behavior, but I do notice a rather significant number of people wearing red, white, and blue (i.e., presumably patriotic) clothing accessories: hats, scarves, emblems, and the like . . . even shoes. I find this encouraging.
Interestingly, though, since I began wearing my MAGA hat ten days ago, I haven’t seen one single solitary soul in New York wearing a MAGA hat. This I find not so encouraging, but not surprising.
