MAGA Hats Are the Newest Form of Pre-Teen Rebellion

MAGA Hats Are the Newest Form of Pre-Teen Rebellion

It’s the must-have DC class trip souvenir for white male middle schoolers.

BY HILARY GEORGE-PARKIN JUN 15, 2017, 12:23PM EDT

There's only one item that's flown off the shelves of DC souvenir shop Washington Welcome Center at the same velocity as fidget spinners this year: Donald Trump's signature "Make America Great Again" caps. And like the meme-able plastic toy, the headwear has found an unlikely market with the middle-school crowd.

"The kids on class trips, they come in and buy them up," says manager Dexter Morse. "Those are our two most popular items.”

The result? Roving packs of red-hat-wearing teens — mostly male and almost all white — from the Lincoln Memorial to the Library of Congress.

"On a recent trip to DC the vast majority of red MAGA hats {I} saw were worn by middle-school-age boys on school trips," tweeted New York Times reporter John Herrman in response to BuzzFeed's investigation into the rise of Trump-related bullying incidents since the election.

1. The maturity level of TRump himself

A 13 year old boy is about right.

3. Male teenage thought processes....

...... same as boneheaded white male adults.... blind allegiance​ to tr-dump is the macho macho thing to do.

I ain't no pinko liberal ~ I am a macho macho (Russian commie) man.
