It’s yet another bad hair day for President Donald Trump.

Last week, Team Trump announced a special green edition of their “Make America Great Again” hats. In a thrilling holiday update, the back of the hat bears a symbol to commemorate St. Patrick’s Day.

However, it’s the wrong one.

The Republican Party promoted the hats as a stylish way to celebrate “St. Patty’s Day,” but Twitter quickly noticed that the hat is stitched with a four-leaf clover, rather than the shamrock associated with the holiday.

The shamrock is associated with Irish pride. 

Legend has it that St. Patrick, the saint for whom the holiday is named, used the three leaves of a shamrock as a visual metaphor when teaching about the Christian trinity of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

He did not use a four-leaf clover. 

The GOP referred to “St. Patty’s Day,” but Twitter was quick to point out the correct shortened spelling is “St. Paddy’s Day.”

One hat, two gaffes. Better luck next year.
