Last week, Team Trump announced a special green edition of their “Make America Great Again” hats. In a thrilling holiday update, the back of the hat bears a symbol to commemorate St. Patrick’s Day.
However, it’s the wrong one.
The Republican Party promoted the hats as a stylish way to celebrate “St. Patty’s Day,” but Twitter quickly noticed that the hat is stitched with a four-leaf clover, rather than the shamrock associated with the holiday.
Legend has it that St. Patrick, the saint for whom the holiday is named, used the three leaves of a shamrock as a visual metaphor when teaching about the Christian trinity of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
He did not use a four-leaf clover.
One hat, two gaffes. Better luck next year.
