TKC EXCLUSIVE!!! MAGA HAT TRIGGERS PLAZA CUSTOMER AS KANSAS CITY DEBATES PREZ TRUMP IMPEACHMENT!!!



A note from a KICK-ASS TKC TIPSTER witnessing life on the front lines of the worsening retail game reveals the increasingly divisive discourse concerning Prez Trump and the ongoing impeachment inquiry.

To wit . . . Here's the word . . .

Hey TKC, just wanted to tell you that people in your city have gone ABSOLUTELY BONKERS about (Prez) Trump. I was shopping with my daughter on the Plaza last week and noticed a very frazzled older woman demanding to speak with the store manager about an item in the window that was angering her She was tapping her feet and fuming when a very sheepish, cherubic 30-something woman politely approached her and asked if she could help.

The lady screamed:

"You're G*ddamn right you can help me! I want that MAGA hat out of that window, out of the store! Don't you dare try and defend it, THAT HAT IS A SYMBOL OF HATRED and it WILL be taken down!"

The mood in the store changed quickly. At that point the woman screaming was shaking, seemed to be frothing at the mouth and her eyes were as big as plates. She didn't look to me like a homeless person but it was getting harder to make any kind of distinction.

The manager tried to tell her that the store didn't sell any MAGA hats and she had no idea what the woman was talking about. At that point the salt & pepper hair of the screaming wench just about stood on end as she yelled: 

"IT'S RIGHT OUTSIDE! TAKE IT DOWN! IT GOES DOWN! NOW!"

Wanting to be of assistance, and hopefully help this lady avoid a mental break down. I politely interjected that the woman might be referring to the red Kansas City hat in the window.

The even younger sales clerk standing nearby gasped and nearly broke out into a full sprint to remove the hat in question. My daughter and I had seen enough and promptly scooted past the confrontation. I managed to grab a photo of the hat in question before it was removed. The wispy college-aged sales clerk seemed annoyed that I motioned to her to wait a moment before the display was removed but I needed to document how horrible this "Trump derangement syndrome" has become in Kansas City.

I'm not a frequent voter but it's astonishing how hysterical some people have become about the President and from what I've seen the Plaza is now ground zero for this kind of hysterical debate. Oh well, at least it gave my daughter and I something to talk about while trying out the new Smashburger. Thought you might find it interesting and I've included a picture of the hat in question that I thought was cute but now realize might be too dangerous to wear in public if it inspires that kind of reaction.
###############

And so . . .




This local slice of life leads us to a quick collection of newsworthy items regarding the ongoing impeachment debate.

Newsweek: Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell on Wednesday declared that if the Democrat-led House votes to impeach President Donald Trump, then the Senate will hold an impeachment trial.

Axios: Rudy finds himself at center of House impeachment inquiry

IndependentUK: 'Shaken' president insults Pelosi at Syria meeting, as he repeats discredited conspiracy theories about Ukraine

Reuters: One person is missing in the Democrats' impeachment inquiry: the whistleblower

Newsweek: "Impeach the Pres.," Trump signed off ambiguously in what was possibly attempted sarcasm, but which set off a wave of mocking tweets in response.

Fox News: Nancy Pelosi being politically smart by delaying impeachment vote, Brit Hume says

They should not have taken the hat down. It was not offensive. When you give these people an inch, they take a mile. Better to call the police when that kind of craziness shows up.

Ur punchline is that both hats are made in China and now more expensive because of the tariffs.

Another Midtown Mom said...

Ugh, I can smell the Leawood entitlement dripping from this post. How dare people have a real discussion about something other than shopping in front of this bitch.

Go back to Town Center.

The old woman's name is Gretchen, if you live, shop or work by the Plaza you know her and have had at least one interaction with her. She yells at the top of her lungs about everything. Often she's not really mad, she's going deaf. As for her hair, sometimes it's put together neatly. She might have been having a bad day.

I don't think arguing about a window display is such a horrible thing but if you see her, be kind to her. It's obvious that she's quickly slipping into Alzheimer's. This is probably her last season on The Plaza. I think she has lived around the area for close to 60 years.

Imagine that, people arguing about the President? That has never happened before! Totally unbelievable that people would have a political debate in public!
For shame.

Actually, have to side with AMM here. The lady who sent in this comment has OBVIOUSLY never set foot outside of her white, suburban, Conservative bubble and doesn't know that in major American cities people actually call you on your bull. Good for Gretchen or whoever this woman was!

It's called consumer advocacy and we're all entitled to it!

I can't stand Trump, but the store owner is entitled to have whatever he or she wants in the window, and the woman is free to shop elsewhere. Problem solved.

Too effing funny, Trump will win with even more electoral votes in 2020. Can’t wait for the snow flakes to melt, once again.

It's not even a MAGA HAT!

That's the point. People can get so touchy nowadays. People really need to relax when they talk about politics. You're never going to convince anybody that they're wrong. So just be nice to one another.

2nd 8:07 agreed. When a conservative doesn’t like something they don’t buy it, when a demoncrap doesn’t like something they demand that it be removed immediately or all hell breaks loose. Sad.

Sounds like typical KC to me. People are trying to do business and then some angry lib woman starts yelling. Meanwhile, everybody else is just interested in hamburgers. Surprised they weren't on the way to stuff their face with BBQ.

Today’s poll predicts that President Trump will win again!

If you’re a democuckoo you should be embarrassed at the extremely low quality of candidates you have to choose from, it’s that bad.

You’re DOOMED!

Seen this old beast make a barista cry at Starbucks. Strange, she looked like Trumper to me. I guess it depends on the weather.

KC Realness said...

Hate to spoil your fun dingle-berries but this election is about one thing and one thing only.

Are we going to go to war with Iran.

Democrats want to get us into another world war.

Trump is keeping us out and talking about American First.

If you want war, vote Democrat and don't let that socialism garbage fool you. If Trump gets impeached it's because they want the money to keep the gears of the war machine grinding. Everything else is just window dressing.

Not surprised, a coworker's 10 year old son had some SJW bitch slap his Little League team ballcap off his head and called a little racist bastard while they were on vacation in Des Moines this Summer. The cap was red and had a big "T" embroidered on it.

Bernie Sanders looks just like the former East German Communist Dictator, Eric Honecker. The Democrats are communists as they want everyone to be equally poor by taking everyone's wages and wealth via increased property and income taxes. Just like the Soviet Union and East German Communists, government bureaucrats will live high on the hog while the rest of the country lives like peasants.

You Democrats can have Stalin, Mao, Castro and Honecker. Give me Patrick Henry, Thomas Jefferson, George Washington, John Hancock, James Madison and our other great forefathers who won our independence and wrote the Constitution. Oh yeah, Democrats want to tear down Washington's and Jefferson's statues and rewrite history.

Would it be okay to have a Nazi flag in the window? Same difference

Anonymous said...

Dear Midtown Mommy,
Don’t be hating on Leawood. It’s highly unlikely that we would be on the Plaza patronizing your endangered, second-rate retail traps when the very few that were left that had any kind of customer following have moved to Town Center anyway.

Anonymous said...

Nick, can you please explain how having a red cap the says Kansas City in white lettering is the same as having a nazi flag in the window? This should be good.

I voted for Obama and then Trump. I would like to see him win again if for no other reason than to watch a lot of teeth gnashing and heads exploding from the overwhelming cerebral overload caused by the misfiring of synapses in the heads of the losers. The Dems have lost their minds and aren't interested in helping the country get better, just harassing a duly-elected president in dishonest ways with a new false accusation every day.

Trump did not endear himself to conservatives when he had unprotected sex with the porn actress, stormy daniels on a golf course. And Trump's wife posed completely naked for European magazines years ago and her pictures are all over the internet. That's the kind of stuff people do not forgive. I could care less about politics, but would not like my son and daughter doing that kind of stuff. First Presidential family with porn and nudity. Unusual.

^^^ Right On The Money .... Voting in another Democrat would be voting for Obama's FAR to the Left Policy's. NO Thanks MAGA 2020 KAG

11:03, Exposing the private lives of public figures (in this case, politicians) is a practice perfected by the liberal media. Presidents having extramarital affairs has been going on since the earliest administrations. The only reason it wasn’t a scandal then is because the media (and the public) had the decency to keep people’s private lives far more private then they are today. Think of the flings JFK had with Marilyn Monroe, and Jackie Kennedy was photographed sunbathing nude on Skorpios yet the late president and his First Lady are held in nearly a sainted memory. If you want to make sure your children don’t do such things, good for you, but if they did, would you want it to be headline news?

Springheel said...

Abortion is "righteous". Homosexuality is "normal". Forcing the hand of the worker to feed the non-worker is "moral". Shadowing "Christian" values without having any of the attributes of Godliness as mentioned above. This is the liberal left. It is all about fooling our young and those who have not seen through it yet in their 30s are either completely ignorant of scripture or are too guilty of sin to repent of their past. Any honest citizen can see that the forces that oppose our admittedly flawed leader are the forces of the real evil- why? Because they are the same people who support all the other evils that are destroying us. "Social justice", "transgenderism", "racial quotas", anarchy good-law and order bad. Mom and Dad evil-let the state raise them. Why are we listening to children who don't know a damn thing until they are 70 yrs old? 67% of Americans will now never support the side of the media on ANY issue because of their distrust created by medias support on the wrong side of every important issue.

Anonymous said...

^^^^ Good comment because at least it's earnest and has a point.

As for distrust, I think both sides of the American political structure are responsible for that.

Anonymous said...

The problem is that young ppl have been brainwashed by TV and leftist education and they do not know how good it can be, used to be, they do not know what has been taken away. Growing up in a time pre rap, pre degeneracy and much diversity...we were not rich but we had a culture of family and responsibility and it was GREAT! It can be that way again, the radicals today are those that believe it can and will be great again

To be fair, Trump surrendering to terrorists and striking a deal to start another middle eastern war complete with an ethnic cleansing campaign tends to piss people off, so there's that.

She'd have been thrilled if the red hat had a hammer & sickle on it instead of "Kansas City." Might even have bought one, but only if she gets a senior discount.
