MAGA Hats - Crazy Detector

| No Comments

Make America Great Again hats cause interesting behaviour - here and here for two examples and there are a lot more out there. Here is one more with some delightful unintended consequences. First, from Boston, MA 25 News:

Woman arrested for assaulting man wearing MAGA hat on Cape Cod
A woman on Cape Cod is facing charges for assaulting a man wearing a "Make America Great Again" hat.

Rosiane Santos, 41, of Falmouth was charged with disorderly conduct and assault and battery.

Santos told police she was upset the man was wearing the hat in a Mexican restaurant.

The man wearing the hat, 23-year-old Bryton Turner of Mashpee, was so annoyed with the woman's antics that he pulled out his phone and started recording her.

The incident occurred last Friday at the "Casa Vallarta" Mexican restaurant in Falmouth.

A bit more - Macaro is a bartender at the restaurant:

As Falmouth police officers were escorting Santos out of the restaurant, Macarao said she took another swipe at Turner.

"I couldn’t imagine somebody just coming up and hitting them when there’s cops right here," Macarao said.

"She just tried to grab my hat in front of four officers, not smart," Turner said.

And the unintended consequences - from Boston Magazine:

Woman who Knocked MAGA Hat off Falmouth Man’s Head Facing Deportation
Rosiane Santos was arrested for assault after harassing 23-year-old Bryton Turner at a Mexican restaurant.

A bit more:

ICE announced Tuesday it has begun deportation proceedings against Rosiane Santos, 41, who was seen on video knocking a red-and-white “Make America Great Again” hat off the head of 23-year-old Bryton Turner on Friday, February 15 at the restaurant Casa Vallarta. She is from Brazil and is in the country illegally, the agency says.

“Santos is currently facing local charges for assault and other offenses. She is presently in ICE custody and has been entered into removal proceedings before the federal immigration courts,” says ICE spokesman John Mohan has said in a statement to CBS Boston.

Just goes to show, they are sending their best and brightest. Crazy Detector? From Reddit r/The_Donald:

Easiest way to diagnose TDS; wear a hat

And three of the comments:

But it's not a hat, it's a crazy detector.

MAGA hats are the new glasses from "They Live."
Wearing the hat shows you exactly who is diseased with TDS.

We came here to chew bubble gum and kick ass, and we're all out of bubble gum.

So true - amazing how people are so easily triggered.
