Jake Talbot, a U.S. Army veteran, says he was wearing his Trump 2016 T-shirt to his workout Sunday when the owner of CDY Fitness in Troy, Mo. told him it was making others in the gym “uncomfortable,” according to KMOV.

“I was just puzzled there for a second,” Talbot told the station. “She said that it was racist and represents racism and that’s when I when I was like ‘oh, you’re done.’”

Talbot posted a video to Facebook after his workout, taking exception specifically to the connection between his T-shirt and “racism.”


“That it’s linked to racism,” Talbot said in response to the owner’s request. “I hate that word whenever people use it. It’s thrown around way too loosely. It’s 2019.(…) It’s not racism.”

  1. So a College professor can spew all kinds of vile anti semitism and is defended by the administration as “free speech” protected by the 1st amendment. But an army veteran who defended our Nation is not allowed to wear a shirt that represents the sitting President of the United States???!

  2. I wonder how many chassids want a MAGA hat? I do not have one.

    What more can you do folks? I guess you can get a nicer hat and be greeted by smiles. You know what type of trash day you want. Your own name often is just the best you create yourself.

    Toss the MAGA hat if you want. America deserves a Great Better America. Borsalino approved. Why a trash red hat for the whole perpetuated time of peace? You got it wrong.
