Blue MAGA hats appealing to the supporters of President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris are rejected by the Democrats, with a tweet putting the hats in a certain proportion.
These hats are a version of President Donald Trump’s red Make America Great Again hat, which has become synonymous with his most dedicated supporters.
Now there have appeared blue MAGA hats that say “Made America Great Already” and have nothing to do with the Biden Harris administration, but the Democrats are not happy.
The Twitter account @BidenHarrisHats shared photos of the hats and added: “You have already made America Great Already” by simply firing Trump from our White House and driving him out.
“Get your BID ‘BLUE’ MAGA HAT now. Biden ‘has already made America great’ by sending Trump to prison. The hats are on Amazon.”
You ‘made America already great’ by simply firing Trump and driving him out of our White House.

The blue MAGA hats are sold at Amazon for $14.99 and are the only product listed in their Amazon store. They are not officially affiliated with the Biden Harris team or any other known organization.
In fact, reviews of the listing indicate that the blue MAGA hats were sold in 2019 for numerous reasons unrelated to Biden and Harris.
The hats were used to show support for veterans and the military, to express that the U.S. was great before Trump, and to indicate that the wearer had made America great through his actions.
Now the marketing has been adapted to appeal to Biden and Harris followers, with the description of the hat read: “Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, MADE AMERICA GREAT ALREADY, because they put love before hate.
The @BidenHarrisHats Twitter profile – which has just over 300 followers – began posting in August 2020, with the first tweet on the site being: “Get the official hat #BidenHarris2020 has…#joebiden ‘Made America Greater Already’ by selecting #KamalaHarrisForVP.”.
Since the election, the brand now relies on Biden’s victory over Trump to sell the hats.
However, Biden-Harris supporters disagree with this idea, as some claim that it perpetuates the cult-like behavior associated with the red MAGA hats. Others believe that the hats would only reinforce the separation between Trump followers and Biden followers.
In response to the above tweet, which has 4,500 responses and 4,900 quote tweets compared to only about 700 similar tweets at the time of writing this article, Biden and Harris followers completely reject the concept of blue MAGA hats.
said Majid M. Padellan: “We have just finished with a cult. We don’t need another one. Take all these damn hats and make a campfire big enough to be seen from space. This is a RIDICULOUS idea. Don’t do that.”
Yvette Nicole Brown said: “We don’t need another cult. America has just survived one. Enough of this. No hats. No chants. No crimes. No lies.
“Only good people working together to right the wrong. This is what America needs. That’s all we need. Not that. Not that.”
Twitter user Robert Lindsay said: “I voted for Biden, but I would never walk around with a hat on and say I voted for Biden. This is a Trumper thing. I don’t want to be like Trumpers in any way.”
the Twitter user Vonte said, “How can none of you be embarrassed,” while the Twitter user @notsophiacoppola said, “I don’t have the energy to explain why this sucks.”
The official Joe Biden store sells housewarming kits with two navy blue caps, one of which says “Joe” and the other “Biden Harris,” both sold for $30 each.
