“Cocoon-y, tattered and not a lot of things are new about the hat worn by President Trump, but a certain political savvy has been added to the design,” the piece, titled “Donald Trump’s Coconut Hat,” said.
It was headlined by a picture of Trump wearing a “cloche” hat, a traditional North American hat worn with a crown, and an image of a turtle, which was the symbol of the Ku Klux Klan.
The New Yorker also published a similar piece titled “A Coconut Hat: A Presidential Candidate’s Hat of Hatred and Hate,” which said Trump’s “cliche” and “hatred” is “not an insult.”
