Judge Rules That Bars Can Refuse Service to Trump Supporters

❝ A Manhattan judge ruled…that there’s nothing “outrageous” about throwing the president’s supporters out of bars — because the law doesn’t protect against political discrimination.

Philadelphia accountant Greg Piatek, 31, was bounced from a West Village watering hole in January 2017, just after Trump took the oath of office, for wearing a “Make America Great Again” cap, according to his lawsuit…

❝ “Anyone who supports Trump — or believes in what you believe — is not welcome here! And you need to leave right now because we won’t serve you!” Piatek claims the staff of The Happiest Hour on West 10th Street told him after he and his pals complained about the rude service they were getting from a bartender…

❝ “Plaintiff does not state any faith-based principle to which the hat relates,” Justice David Cohen said in tossing the case.

RTFA to chuckle over the silliness Piatek and his lawyer came up with when they realized they were on shaky ground.
