“Like OMG. Can you believe this guy??? Misogyny – or something. Is it even leegaaaul to wear that hat in New York? Like resist, right?”
I will say that this guy was taking his life into his own hands with this move. And he went up to Harlem too, which granted is not the Harlem of the 1980s, but still.
“Trump is so uncool. You know because our president should be cool. Hillary was co…. Well, she was a woman and she would have been the first woman president which was, you know, cool. All those stories of corruption were, like, lies. Lies steeped in misogyny. Misogyny!”

In the left-leaning Big Apple, it’s a fashion faux pas more fatal than walking around in sandals with socks, or strapping a fanny pack around your waist: wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat.
To see for myself, I sported the fire-engine red baseball cap worn by Donald Trump on the campaign trail in liberal gin joints and shops across Manhattan and Brooklyn.
I may as well have been wearing a Red Sox hat at Yankee Stadium.
The mere sight of my cap nearly caused a riot at the historic Stonewall Inn on Christopher Street — site of the 1969 riots that launched the gay rights movement.
“You come into a gay bar — THIS gay bar — with THAT hat!” one woman lectured as a large crowd gathered.*
At Soho’s sceney La Esquina, where celebs like Julia Roberts nosh on $26 enchiladas, servers nearly lost their lunch when I showed up.
*I’ve actually had drinks in the bar next to the Stonewall. Great bar as I remember.
