I ordered a "MAGA" hat from the Trump Coalition (or whatever they call themselves).

It arrived the other day, complete with "Made in China" tag... Roll Eyes

OTOH, it's working. An veddy British acquaintance of mine saw the hat and said "So, you approve of Trump?"

"Absolutely!" I said.

"And what is it that you approve of?"

"No bullshit, no kowtowing to political correctness, says what he means and does what he says. He's the Anti-politician."

Ben sorta blinked and said "Do you think Kavanaugh will get his seat on the Supreme Court?"

"If enough people pull their head out of their ass, certainly!"

He didn't have much to say to me after that...

You must be getting a lot of noise about Collins up there.

When she put her name in the "yes" column, you could've knocked me over with a feather!

Haven't gotten any feedback yet, but I'd imagine not well at all. Maine is a blue state and usually Collins is a flaming RINO.

I emailed her office about Kavanaugh a couple of days ago asking her to vote for him. While I'm not a resident of Maine we do own properties in Aroostook county as well as near Machias. That makes us tax payers in Maine. Chris

My MAGA hat, purchased during the Campaign, has a large "Made In America" tag on the inside.

I know a lot of websites are now selling Trump paraphernalia, but I don't think they're all legit. We almost bought from a place mentioned here on SigForum a while back that offered free hats, just pay shipping, but I think further checking showed it was not really DJT.

The website that you are referring to, "free hats, just pay shipping" -- my suggestion, stay away from them.

This is based on my personal experience. I ordered a hat from them, "KEEP AMERICA GREAT." Free hat, just pay shipping. The shipping was $7.95, so it might as well have been "pay for the hat, free shipping."

I paid, my credit card was charged, then in the months that followed I was slammed with emails from them ("them" being Coalition for Trump" or something similar). After multiple requests to "unsubscribe," I finally wrote them an email and told them to STOP this shit. I haven't heard from them since.

Then, two or three months after I had paid, I received a small package in the mail. It was a hat in an envelope, mailed directly from China. So no question about where it was made! Quality of the hat is somewhere between poor and barely acceptable.



A mind is a terrible thing.

@ V-Tail - my experience exactly.

I'll ask my girlfriend for the website she ordered from originally, and post it for PHPaul. The hat I got, as well as other stuff like "Deplorable" t-shirts, were all very nice quality and made here.
