[Ed. – Great idea until they behead you for cultural appropriation.]

A CNN host used a segment on Islamophobia  to suggest American non-Muslims may want to start wearing hijabs.

“New Day” with Chris Cuomo and Alisyn Camerota featured a piece titled “The Trump transition: Fearful Muslim women take steps to be safe” just hours before Abdul Razak Ali Artan, 20, attempted to use a vehicle and a butcher knife to kill Ohio State University students. The ill-timed story ended with Ms. Camerota discussing ways to ease the fears of Muslim Americans.

“Maybe there will be a movement where people wear the head scarf in solidarity. You know, even if you’re not Muslim,” Ms. Camerota said, The Daily Caller reported. “Maybe it’s the way people shave their heads, you know, sometimes in solidarity with somebody who is going through something.”
