DU Educational Series: The term "Redhats"

I used the term "redhats" in a previous post and another DU member asked me what the term "redhats" means.

I'm new to posting here, but a long time lurker. Is the term redhats not known here yet? It's a great way of describing Trump supporters without being obvious or insulting.

Redhats: Poorly educated, low information, Trump supporters, usually seen wearing red hats.

8. Yep, this is the answer

Red hats have been around for a long time. We can't be slandering their good name.

10. I always thought that was a Jehovah Witness thing - LOL

I've got an aunt who was JW and she was really into this red hat thing.

6. Low information, poorly educated folks. MAGA hats.

Cincinatti Reds and St. Louis Cardinals fans should be able to display their team spirit without a second thought.
