Donald Trump finally covered his hair—but that's really beside the point now.
The Republican presidential candidate touched down in Laredo, Texas, on Thursday for a much-hyped stop at the World Trade Bridge marking the border between the United States and Mexico. You know, where he's super popular lately.
"I think I will win the Hispanic vote," he confidently told reporters today.
But while he had both supporters and critics greeting him and his massive security detail on the campaign trail today, the folks who weren't front and center for his tour through town are largely left with...
This hat, sporting the "Make America Great Again" slogan Trump said that he had trademarked, although it was already a Ronald Reagan slogan from back in the day.
And the hat is tremendous! And available for sale at Trump Tower for $25 a pop and, starting next month, on donaldjtrump.com. (So that means this will still all be going on next month...)
Here are some of the people who were super-psyched to see Trump and his hat in Laredo today:
My first guess was that Trump's hat said "All Lives Matter". Saving that for Iowa, I bet.— Brian Coulter (@PhilaBCoulter) July 23, 2015
Trump gets off his jumbo jet in Laredo wearing...a hat. Everything is horrible. Dreams crushed.— Andy Kroll (@AndyKroll) July 23, 2015

The only thing that could make Trump's hat more awesome is if it were written in Comic Sans.— Ana Marie Cox (@anamariecox) July 23, 2015
With the addition of this hat Donald Trump is just an alcohol problem away from becoming my grandfather. pic.twitter.com/h5PD2WZ9wR— Olga Volkova (@RusskayaMysl) July 23, 2015
Dear reporters at Trump presser: Ask right now for him to show you the label on where that hat was made.— Jennifer Hayden (@Scout_Finch) July 23, 2015
And of course, his baseball cap/trucker hat/your grandpa's golfing hat now has its own Twitter account:
