Lawsuit: Trump Lover Claims MAGA Hat Reflects ‘Sincerely Held Religious Belief’

They worship the Orange God: A Trump loving Republican is suing a New York bar and demanding religious recognition for his red MAGA hat.

30-year-old Greg Piatek has launched a lawsuit against The Happiest Hour located in the West Village, claiming bartenders refused to serve the Trump loving deplorable because he was wearing his red MAGA (Make America Great Again) hat.

Heavy reports:

Piatek claims several bartenders denied him drinks because of the hat made popular by President Donald Trump’s campaign. He says a manager then told him, “I spoke directly to the owner and the owner told me that anyone who supports Trump or believes what you believe is not welcome here. And you need to leave right now because we won’t serve you.”

Salon explains:

This he said-they-said legal kerfuffle has taken on religious proportions as the Trump supporter is claiming his reverence for the president — signaled by his red hat — should have the same legal protections as any religion.

In his lawsuit against The Happiest Hour, Piatek claims he was “adhering to his closely held spiritual beliefs by adorning the hat in question,”  and argues he is part of a “protected class” because believing in the Trump slogan amounts to a religion.

Legal briefs field on behalf of Piatek assert:

A religious belief can appear to every other member of the human race preposterous, yet still be entitled to protection.

Piatek’s attorney claims the Trump lover was “adhering to his closely held spiritual beliefs by adorning the hat in question.”

However, the bar rejects Piatek’s claims, noting that the Trump loving deplorable paid his tab in full and left a 20 percent tip on the night of the incident.

The Happiest Hour attorney Preston Ricardo reports:

The plaintiff’s arguments are entirely fanciful. There is zero case law to support them… this action is a publicity stunt in the guise of lawsuit.

Bottom line: For some deplorables, loving Trump is a religion, and they worship their Orange God.
