"Hey, Ryan Zinke: You’ve Got Your Ranger Hat on Backward"

Above is a picture of Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke posing for a photo last week to promote a new children’s version of the National Park Service passport book. So far, so good, right? Well, upon closer examination, you might notice he’s wearing his hat backward.


This is just the latest in a pattern of public gaffs by Zinke. Last May, he posed on horseback during a staged photo op with Vice President Mike Pence while wearing his cowboy hat backward. When Elliott Woods (who posted about the backward ranger hat on Facebook this week), met Zinke for a day of fly-fishing last year to profile him for Outside, the Interior Secretary rigged his fly rod... backward. Zinke posted a video on Twitter (above) of himself casting a fly rod as if it were a bait rod.
