Who knew Todd Muller has French ancestry? He sure knew how to surrender quickly after a brisk march backwards over a hat.

National leader Todd Muller says his “Make America Great Again” hat is staying in its box in his new office, and he won’t be unpacking it.

The hat with the Donald Trump slogan was a piece of US political memorabilia picked up when he observed the 2016 US presidential campaign.

It was on display in his previous office and came to light in several interviews after he became National leader on Friday and it created a social media storm with claims it represented racial oppression.

He told media on Saturday he would be displaying it in his new Leader of the Opposition office in Parliament but he has backed down from that pledge.

Muller acknowledged that others had “a different perspective” on the hat.

“I respect that,” he told reporters at Parliament today.

“I packed it up in a box when I left the office round there,” he said pointing in the direction of his old office “and it will stay in the box.”

For a tall man he sure shows a remarkable lack of spine.

He has capitulated at the first hurdle which was a less-than-nothing burger anyway. Instead of telling everyone who was whining to GFY, he has instead shown he’s a gutless weasel when confronted.

The Thug’s veto wins again.

If Todd Muller is interested in political memorabilia then I have a suggestion for him that matches his lack of a spine:

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats. Cam has previously voted National, Act and NZ First, he never was ever tempted to vote Labour or Green, but once contemplated voting for the Maori party. They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners. He is fearless in his pursuit of a story. Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
