THE MAGA CAP that I ordered almost two months ago on eBay from a company in China finally arrived at the Hacienda yesterday.
I wear it proudly here after finishing breakfast today. I didn’t pay much for the cap because I knew I’d never wear it in public. But the thing is so cheaply made and cheesy that I overpaid the two or three dollars, including shipping, that it cost me.
Those Chinamen are wily buggers. But Trump’s trade deals will put them in their places. And the new USMCA pact with Canada and Mexico that Trump signed yesterday will also benefit Americans. With luck, Mexicans too. The Canadians? Meh. They have Trudeau.
My child bride inquired if I’d be wearing the cap downtown, and I said I didn’t think that would be wise. She, however, said no Mexican would know what it symbolized. She didn’t. Maybe, but I’ll just hang it on the wall near my cracked Trump coffee mug.
Some readers will recall that I ordered a Trump mug shortly after his stupendous 2016 election, also from an eBay vendor. On arriving at Mexican Customs, an agent removed it from the insulated packaging, smashed it, replaced it in the box, and sent it on to me.
I pasted it back together the best I could, and it serves proudly as a pen-holder.
I may not be drinking java from my Memorial Mug, but I still love it, am using it, and that Customs agent can just stick his attitude where the sun doesn’t shine.
