Have you actually seen someone wearing a MAGA hat in real life?

Ironically, I saw a bunch of middle schoolers on a school trip inside the Holocaust Museum in DC wearing them.

I'll echo what others have said about DC. Go to the National Mall and you'll see more in 10 minutes than probably anywhere else that's not actively hosting a rally.

Yes, and all too fucking often as a cashier.

Typically on geriatric Boomers shits who think they can get their way by intimidating everyone, and WASPs with severe attitude issues who seem to be perpetually on the edge of a Neurotic Crisis if the slightest fucking star goes out of alignment. I remember one who was streaming a Mitch McConnell speech on their phone speakers at full volume and kept ignoring me when I tried to ask her basic shit like "Do you want any Stamps/Garbage stickers?" and "Do you have a Rewards Account with us?"

And on one of my coworkers who has over the years I've been there been very clearly not right in the head - And he was wearing it WHILE ON THE CLOCK, SERVING CUSTOMERS, AT MY REGISTER - I told him to put that shit away as long as he's bagging at my register, and he threw a fit. And in the weeks since I've been getting treated like a pariah by several of my coworkers, down to what sounded like a threat to me whispered into my ear just today. Skipping that joint ASAP, surrounded by too many pieces of shit at this workplace, both in customers and coworkers.

Everyone who wears a MAGA hat unironically belongs in a fucking psych ward. I've had enough of dealing with them in-person.

Saw the first one I’ve ever noticed a few weeks back in TN. Old white woman that also had a cutout of Trump posted up in one of their car windows. And it was a Mexican restaurant. I felt bad for the waiter.

Really just some tourists in Washington DC. However, driving around my area (north NJ) last week I saw some wiener kid in a car wearing one.

I see stands at airports selling them though and it's incredibly creepy.

Lol Maybe in downtown Austin but I know a lot of places in Austin where it would be welcome.
Yeah, I live in Austin and it isn't common but I have seen some people wearing them over the last two years. Also, a fair amount of conservative bumper stickers from fairly benign campaign support to QAnon shit. Austin is, after all, the home of Alex Jones.

Never. Chicago doesn't roll in that shit.
Maybe not Chicago it self but its immediate suburbs sure as hell is infested with that shit. Just to specify where I'm coming from in my own post right above yours.

It's a small miracle we managed to oust Hultgren and elect Underwood - That's the only thing that's helped me maintain any faith in humanity out here in the place I've dubbed Deep South North from all the fine examples of humanity I've been exposed to out here in Kane County.

Of course, we’ve many videos and photos of conservatives donning the cap and a sea of them at Trump rallies, but have you ever seen someone wear in the real?

I have actually never seen someone wearing the hat out and about. I live in a pretty blue county in Ohio, though.

I did see someone wearing a “CNN Fake News” T-shirt, though.
Yes! And I live in Thailand!

Sixflags in Vallejo back in Late May. Some 17-20 year old white kid with a group of his friends. I pointed it out to my friend group and my girlfriend yelled at him to go fuck himself as we were leaving the park.

Western Maryland. Yes, though mainly what I see is big ass Trump banners and flags hanging from people's homes. There's one guy that literally has a giant Trump neon sign on his business.

I saw some middle-aged twat wearing a 'Trump 2020' hat at the Charlotte airport. I wanted to slap it off his fucking head but TSA would have tackled me.

around the election, yeah.

i'd like to think most of them caught on it's not something you casually slap on your head these days. not that i think they'd be particularly ashamed to either, though

Yes.

Not just that, Confederate flags on vehicles, being hanged through people's windows at houses. Trump support signs from time to time on people's lawns.

The works.

Where am I?

Supposedly the Progress city of Erie, Pennsylvania, but as more and more young people leave, it becomes more and more right leaning and more of this shit crops up. Honestly, I'm not shocked we shifted to the right, given the population numbers dwindle, younger folk are leaving, and there's really no opportunities here in Erie regarding most jobs, so...

California
I live in San Joaquin County (in California, right next to Alameda County), we voted for Hillary in 2016 but we do have many rural areas and "country" folk here, but I've probably only seen 1.

I think most won't wear it since we have a large Hispanic, Filipino, and black population and I'm sure they don't want to risk getting their ass beat.

I actually haven't, but I'm always double-taking when I see a red cap now.

Edit: There is one dumbass near me flying a "Trump 2020" flag from a proper flagpole in their front yard. It's an eyesore.

Oddly enough never on a hat or t-shirt, but I’ve seen bumper stickers with the words. I would think I’d see more, especially since the city where I live I see confederate flags usually 1 to 3 times a week outside of a home or on a vehicle.

I have honesty only seen an old guy at the gym wear the hat. I live in Vegas and Nevada turned into full on blue state after 2018 mid terms.

No, but then again it would be strange to see one here in Japan. I did see a Japanese guy handing out Trump pins though because he believed Trump would defeat North Korea. Everyone avoided him.

Yes, once, and it wasn't even in the US. I saw one young man wearing one in Gothenburg, Sweden, around the 2016 election.

Nope never. But I'm in Washington state or occasionally flying and business people don't really wear that shit.

Yes and I live in the UK. They sold them for a time in high street pound shops.

An old school friend of mine who loves Brexit, Nigel Farage etc. bought one because he also thinks Trump's a "decent guy" and doesn't understand why there were protests in London when he visited here.

Yes and in the most bizarre place too: a Carl’s Jr. in Japan. The person wearing it wasn’t a local either. It was some white guy who most likely a tourist.

I live in Washington state and saw one person wearing one at a 4th of July parade in the town I live in. But literally just that one person that one time.

Just a facebook "friend". Its fucking weird because this person is otherwise very smart.

Also have some douche a couple blocks over with a giant Trump 2020 banner hanging across the front of their house. Need to get me a Sanders banner but i have kids so probably not a great idea with some of the wackos out there.

Someone sat two rows in front of me at an Australian Rules Football game a month ago wearing a MAGA hat. I assumed they were an American tourist but then I heard them talk in a clear Australian accent.

What a flog.
