A supporter of President Donald Trump took on the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles and got her driver’s license picture taken while wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat. When we first met up with Cheryl Hall, she was feeling proud and victorious.
“My birthday, I got to have this great hat on and also I fought for what I believe in with the state, because it didn’t make sense to me,” Hall said, “so this is victorious for me.”
She said she went to get her new license at the end of March and was asked by the employee assisting her to remove the hat.
“I said, ‘Why do I have to take my hat off, when I see a young lady over there with a veil covering around her face?’ I didn’t understand that. So she said to me, ‘That’s her religion.’ I said, ‘If that’s her religion, this is my religion!’ And she said, ‘Well, we do have regulations with the statutes.’
Now, the state may make her take the photograph again, but without the hat.
