Paging Clinton haters!
Thursday, Broadsheet discussed a Republican political operative who is using an acronym to sling the C-word at Hillary Clinton. Citizens United Not Timid, aka CUNT, is a political action committee dedicated to “educating the public about what Hillary Clinton really is,” by selling T-shirts with a red, white and blue female crotch logo. Classy.
Yet, there are other creative ways to tar Clinton with the C-word via T-shirt. Today, we offer this photo of a special rebus puzzle T-shirt for country music fans who hate Hillary. Let’s keep the misogynist Hillary hate-wear coming! Send pics or links to firstname.lastname@example.org.
