Canadian Judge Suspended After Wearing ‘MAGA’ Hat in Courtroom

A Canadian judge has been benched for 30 days after he wore one of President Trump’s signature “Make America Great Again” hats in court.

Judge Bernd Zabel, who make $284,000 per year, has been suspended without pay and was given a formal reprimand for his actions, according to the National Post.

The decision came after the Ontario Judicial Council panel met last month for a one-day hearing into the complaints against Zabel for wearing the red “MAGA” hat on Nov. 8, 2016, one day after Trump won the presidency.

The 69-year-old justice said his actions were akin to judicial misconduct.

Here’s what the panel said:

What would a reasonable member of the public think upon seeing Justice Zabel enter the courtroom wearing Trump’s signature red “Make America Great Again” hat and state that he did so “in celebration of an historic event?”

[A] reasonable member of the public would think that Justice Zabel was making a political statement and endorsing Donald Trump’s campaign.

Zabel will be able to keep his job and has only been briefly suspended because of his “unblemished and exemplary service on the bench” over his 27-year career in the court.

The council also said there’s “a stark contrast between the perception created by the Nov. 9 incident and the reality of an experienced and fair-minded judge.”

For his part, the judge said his decision to wear the wildly popular campaign gear was an “ill-considered” joke, and he has since apologized for donning the “MAGA” cap.
