In the original “Queer Eye for the Straight Guy,” the five cheerfully judgy taste mavens uncovered plenty of fashion choices in their subjects’ homes that made them cringe. But the series’ revival finds a new one while visiting Cory, a NASCAR-loving Georgia police officer: a Make America Great Again cap.
Karamo Brown, the show’s culture expert, playfully puts the hat on as Bobby Berk, the interior designer, watches slack-jawed. “We’re all going to make America great again,” Cory says.
The scene captures how the new “Queer Eye,” now on Netflix, deals with the baggage America has accumulated in its closets since 2003. It doesn’t look away from the new culture clashes. But for the most part, it wears them lightly.
