Update, 6/29: HILLARY. What have you done?
Grillary/Chillary Clinton has just restocked her online store with summer merchandise, and it is like a millennial candy store or Urban Outfitters—same thing. That is a koozie above. For beer. That says "amirite." There are also flash tattoos (opens in new tab) and a spatula (opens in new tab) that not only brands your meat with her logo but also functions as a bottle opener.
Pssshhh. And they say she's out of touch with the people.
Original post, 5/26: Ever since Hillary Clinton announced her candidacy (opens in new tab), every old dude with a political science degree and a standing appointment on cable television has been like, "Yes, yes. According to my calculations, she now has to downplay her accomplishments and ambition so she can win this popularity contest." So, by golly, she went and recruited Beyoncé (opens in new tab). She got a chicken burrito bowl at Chipotle. She made Brooklyn her campaign HQ (opens in new tab). And on Tuesday, she opened her online store (opens in new tab) and waltzed straight into America's heart.*
Amongst the 25 items for sale, the clear standout is the "Everyday Pantsuit Tee (opens in new tab)," which references her well-known penchant for matching sets in every shade of the rainbow (opens in new tab).
There's also a feminist cross-stitched pillow (opens in new tab) and a "Progress Pint Glass (opens in new tab)" made from "100% shattered glass ceilings." Brilliant, Hillary/Hillary's consultant. Brilliant.
*exaggeration, but as everyone knows, self-deprecation and puns are definitely how she'd get there.
