Maybe it’s because the third collection of columns I’m currently putting together is all about Trump Derangement and the ResistanceLOL that this story caught my eye. When you’re working on an e-book that’s all about how insane the Left has become since the election of Donald Trump, it’s hard not to notice a sorry tale of another angry Leftist ending a friendship because Orange Man Bad.
“Think Progress” writer Zack Ford gave his longtime friend an ultimatum: “Either the MAGA hat goes or I go! Choose!”
And how did his friend choose?
Yup. She chose MAGA.
ICYMI, I included in my newsletter yesterday a brief personal essay about how a high school’s friends insistence on wearing a MAGA hat ended our friendship. I explain what the hat signifies to me and why it’s a dealbreaker in any meaningful relationship. https://t.co/NkcdMHeHMK— Zack Ford (@ZackFord) July 6, 2019
Poor thing. His life is so hard.
Notice how he blames the hat for the ending the friendship and not, well, himself.
Who gives someone an ultimatum over a freaking hat?!
A rational person would surmise thus: “A longtime friend of mine supports the President and wears a MAGA hat. So maybe I’ve been close-minded and prejudiced for thinking the worst of people in MAGA hats.”
But Zack isn’t rational.
As you can expect, things aren’t going his way on Twitter, however, He is getting ratioed back to the Crusades.
Frankly this now-former friend is better off.
Would you want this kind of insufferable prat in your life?
Let Zack live his life bitter and alone — with only fellow TDS-sufferers for company.
But who’s the intolerant one here? Seems to me this friend in a MAGA was able to overlook Zack’s anti-Trump derangement to remain friends. It was Zack who couldn’t rise above it.
Zack isn’t the one who comes off looking good here. Doesn’t he realize that.
He looks churlish, closed-minded, arrogant and petty.
You know, the telltale symptoms of Trump Derangement Syndrome.

“Woah, you chose the hat over me???” pic.twitter.com/mRPfsyAE6c
I’m imaging this girl in a room with zack on one side & the hat on the other. Zack is calling her, & the hat is just sitting there ..like hats do.. and Zack pleads for her to pick him, and the hat is, again, just sitting there, and she chooses the hat. Zack crumples into a ball.— Jessica Fletcher (@heckyessica) July 7, 2019
I’m going to screen capture his tweet. Something tells me Zack’s proud recounting of the friendship ultimatum is going to be quietly deleted now that most people (like his former friend) realize what a gormless dink he is.
