During their visit to storm-ravaged Texas, Donald and Melania Trump wore hats emblazoned with the acronyms USA and FLOTUS, respectively. For many, the hats were the latest in a well-dressed first couple’s display of accessories. For others, the hats came across as tone deaf considering the state of emergency caused by Hurricane Harvey. Those against the hats argue that the Trump family is once again using the spotlight for product placement, particularly considering that Trump’s Official USA 45th Presidential Hat (the hat he wore in Texas) is sold on his website for $40.
This isn’t the first time the first family has done something like this (remember Ivanka’s team marketing a gold bracelet she wore on 60 Minutes?); nor is it the first time the president has worn his own merchandise in the last week. He wore the same hat in red to two meetings about Hurricane Harvey.
