A Canadian judge will get a 30-day suspension for wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat in court. Justice Bernd Zabel was given a 30-day suspension without pay and a formal reprimand. The suspension comes after an Ontario Judicial Council panel last month held a hearing that looked into complaints received against the judge for wearing the hat bearing President Trump’s campaign slogan in court on Nov. 9, 2016, the day after Trump’s victory.
