A Canadian judge was suspended without pay for wearing a 'Make America Great Again' hat


A Canadian judge was suspended without pay for wearing a hat with President Trump's campaign slogan, "Make America Great Again," in court.

The Ontario Judicial Council suspended Justice Bernd Zabel for 30 days and called his conduct an "inexplicable act of judicial misconduct."

Zabel, who had not been assigned cases since January, wore the cap as he walked into court on Nov. 9, 2016 -- the day after Trump defeated Hillary Clinton in the U.S. election.

He said at his hearing last month that he wore the cap to lighten the mood, but it prompted 81 complaints.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.
