President Donald Trump met with his supporters in the “Bikers For Trump” group over the weekend and posed for photos with some of the organization’s members at the Trump National Golf Club in New Jersey. One detail in the pictures, however, has Trump’s haters freaking out.
Over the weekend, President Donald Trump welcomed a group of approximately 180 bikers made up of military veterans, law enforcement, the president’s supporters, and members of the “Bikers for Trump” New Jersey chapter to his National Golf Club in Bedminster, New Jersey.
During Trump’s brief remarks indoors, he thanked his supporters and happily posed for photos with them. He also pointed out the group of traveling reporters there to cover his remarks, pausing to allow the crowd a moment to boo the media. Trump did not take questions from the press, but he did respond briefly when asked about former aide Omarosa Manigault-Newman, calling her a “lowlife.”
Overall, the event was a resounding success. The president always makes it a point to take time out of his demanding schedule to show his appreciation to those who have supported him. However, by Monday morning, the Trump haters had already found something to complain about.
With the “Bikers for Trump” gettogether having gone off without a hitch, the media was really grasping at straws for a reason to demonize the president. Ultimately, they found it in a patch worn on the leather jacket of a biker who posed for a single photo with the president. That’s right, the press is freaking out over a tiny patch on a biker’s jacket, one that President Trump was probably not even aware of. And this is why people hate the media.
The Washington Post published an article on Monday complaining that President Trump posed next to a biker wearing a “sexist” patch on his vest.
The bikers typically wear vests with dozens of various patches on them, and the Washington Post zoomed in on the photos of the bikers with the president to see what the patches said.
One of the patches seemed to ruffle the feathers of one reporter, who called it “sexist.” The patch in question features an image of a topless woman with guns covering her breasts and the caption, “I [heart] guns and t***ies.” [Source: The Daily Caller]
The biker with the all-American affinity for “guns & t*tties” posed with Trump outdoors on the portico of the golf club after the president made his remarks inside. It is images of those moments that were scrutinized by Washington Post writer Anne Gearan. The man with the patch was near Trump for most of the time reporters saw the president, and they took at least one picture together.
“The dress code for President Trump’s by-invitation meet-and-greet with motorcycle enthusiasts here on Saturday was biker chic — leather, bandannas and for at least one of the supporters who posed with Trump at the raucous event, sexist and other offensive patches,” wrote Gearan. “‘I (heart) Guns & T*tties,’ reads one patch on the unidentified man’s vest. The patch features a drawing of a woman’s naked torso and breasts and a pair of handguns atop her nipples.”
“Other patches visible in blown-up versions of images from the rain-drenched event include one that reads ‘This is America. We eat meat, we drink beer and we speak [expletive] English,'” added Gearan. “Another says, ‘Terrorist Hunting Permit.'”
Gearan and her coworkers may have been horrified by a few of the patches at the “Bikers for Trump” rally over the weekend, but that only demonstrates how grossly out-of-touch they are with reality. Most Americans take no issue with them. In fact, there are probably many people racing to buy those same patches online thanks to Gearan’s coverage.
Moreover, it’s unlikely that President Donald Trump even saw them, so to paint him as a “sexist” simply for taking photos with his supporters is just absurd. However, it’s expected from the likes of the mainstream media.
