And you thought North Korea would be the next international incident for the president.
At the White House Easter Egg Roll on Monday, a kid standing at a rope line asked the president to sign one of those red Make America Great Again hats.
Trump took the hat, signed it and threw it into the air.
“No!” someone in the crowd yelled out. It sounded like the kid.
Politico posted the moment on Twitter.
Politico’s clip didn’t show whether the kid caught the hat, giving Twitter the chance to unleash the hashtag #Hatgate and analyze the video like the “Zapruder film,” one user sighed.
Was Trump trying to throw it back to the kid? Why did he throw it in the air? Why didn’t he just hand it back?
Why are we talking about this?
The debate began to die down after Micah Grimes, social editor for NBC Nightly News, posted video of the moment from a different angle that showed that the kid managed to reach out and catch the hat as it flew through the air.
Now back to your regularly scheduled crises.
