A beautiful spring day in New York today, highs in the 50s. Wore my brown MAGA hat all over the place: on the ferry; around lower Manhattan while helping a flock of lost Chinese tourists find the World Trade Center (I took them past the site on Wall Street where George Washington was sworn in); in Chelsea to stroll through the flea market; then down Sixth Ave; then across 8th Street in the West Village; then on the subway to the ferry.
Nothing to report, really, about reactions to my hat. Is it possible that people are waking up? Or maybe people were in shock and dismay about Robert “Creature from the Deep Swamp Lagoon” Mewler’s nothing-burger report.
The following item perfectly expresses my thoughts about people’s shock and dismay, posted by “Krakatoa” at Ace of Spades HQ on Saturday:
I’m also posting the following cartoon because it graphically depicts what I thought might happen to me when I first started wearing a MAGA hat in New York City 62 days ago. You may recall the violent anti-Trump mobs around the country who were physically attacking Trump supporters during and after the 2016 election. Unfortunately, I don’t know who created the cartoon, nor do I remember where I found it.
