    Guy wearing Trump hat sues bar for refusing to serve him

    NY POST

    Greg Piatek says his pro-Trump hat got him bounced from The Happiest Hour in the Village.

    Bartenders at a West Village hot spot served up discrimination — with a liberal twist — refusing to serve a customer because he was wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat, according to a lawyer.

    Greg Piatek, 30, an accountant from Philadelphia, claims he was snubbed and eventually 86’d by workers at The Happiest Hour on West 10th Street over his conservative fashion statement, popularized by Donald Trump on the campaign trail, he told The Post.

    “Anyone who supports Trump — or believes what you believe — is not welcome here! And you need to leave right now because we won’t serve you!” Piatek claims he was told as he was shown the door by a manager.

    The shake-up started when Piatek and two pals, after a visit to the 9/11 Memorial, ordered drinks at the posh tavern around 6:30 p.m. on Jan. 28.
    A female bartender served Piatek a $15 jalapeño margarita and his pals beers. But when he tried to order a second round, a male bartender noticed his hat — and skipped them, he said.
    One of Piatek’s pals pointed out it was their turn to be served, but the bartender scoffed. “Is that hat a joke?” the Manhattan Supreme Court suit claims.
    Greg Piatek with his attorney, Paul Ciggieri.Angel Chevrestt“Immediately it clicked,” Piatek said, adding that bartenders didn’t see the pro-Trump slogan until he turned his back to the bar.
    “Ignoring me because I’m wearing the hat is ridiculous,” Piatek said. “It’s really sad.”
    The “flustered” bartender got them a second round but allegedly “slammed the drinks down.”
    A third bartender also asked Piatek if his lid was a joke and shouted, “I can’t believe you would support someone so terrible and you must be as terrible a person!” Piatek claimed.

    “I wasn’t even trying to order a drink and she said, ‘Don’t even try to order from me. I won’t get you a drink,’ ” Piatek alleged.
    A manager said he spoke to the bar owner, and was told, “Anyone who supports Trump or believes what you believe is not welcome here. And you need to leave right now because we won’t serve you!” according to the suit.

    Bar owner Jon Neidich did not respond to calls. A manager at the bar refused to comment.
    Piatek’s lawyer Paul Liggieri called the incident “humiliating,” saying it was his client’s “saddest hour.”

    Sure they act like children. What do you expect?
    Raise kids with the mentality that everyone is entitled to everything, the word no does not exist, and that there is not God.
    Brainwash college students and provide with "safe" spaces. While at the same time egging them on to hate cops and protest violently.
    Push socialism.
    Compel adults to believe we can negotiate our way with even our worst enemies to world understanding and peace.
    Guilt and silence the older more conservative generation.

    Pour in bowl and mix, and this is what we now are witnessing.

    Children are probably more well behaved.

    After all, we don't see children breaking into and vandalizing and stealing from businesses, flipping over cars, and starting all sorts of stuff on fire like the liftists do.

    That in mind, I think its I'm changing my insult of "Don't act like a child!" to "Don't act like a liberal/leftist"!

    The guy's lawsuit is frivolous as the bar can refuse to serve anyone that they chose. Seriously, guy suing someone 'cause he didn't get a drink. Guy needs to get a life. Get real.

    if I could add one thing to your mix- no objective truth, it is my opinion vs. your opinion, with no standards. just adds more chaos.

    Why would you want to buy anything from someone who doesn't like your hat. I'd leave and let all my friends know that the establishment doesn't want to make America great.

    Take your vacations here in Florida. We appreciate liberal and conservative business. We do ask that all liberals leave their money here and return home after their vacation.

    Our Black brethren took part in a social revolution to make sure they would no longer have to endure such discrimination. This is no different and I hope the guy wins millions.

    I look forward to the day these liberal swine are denied entry into the Kingdom of Heaven. I pray for them but many will never have a change of heart, thus they will seal their own fate.

    I think the whole situation highlights the hypocrisy in politics today. The Left goes nuts and sues when a florist or baker refuses to do business with a homosexual couple for a wedding, yet will refuse to serve someone else based on political leanings.

    Problem is that both the Left and the Right are going into whining mode these days.

    sounds like sue bait. He most likely already knew they would not serve him.

    florist or baker refuses to do business with a homosexual couple for a wedding Which is one service. Ask for any other type of cake not related to celebrating a fake marriage and the bakers/florists/photographers are fine.

    In this case a bar is apparently refusing all services to the person because he supports trump's slogan.

    You gotta take one thing into consideration. Trump ain't into alcohol. Maybe the bartender thougth a Trump hat would be bad for business?

    I don't drink alcohol but I don't oppose others drinking it responsibly and in moderation.

    I'd actually argue against those who object to it if they tried to claim it's Biblically wrong.

    To my knowledge, Trump's decision to not drink is based on what he saw happen to his brother as a result of alcohol abuse.
