Does Anti-Hillary Merchandise Sell Better than Anti-Trump Merchandise?
While Hillary Clinton won the Democratic nomination this week, it seems anti-Hillary Clinton merchandise is another winner, according to Time.
Etsy seller Amy Doughty sells $3 buttons that poke fun at Clinton and the Monica Lewinsky scandal.The meaner the anti-Hillary phrases are, the better they sell, Doughty said.
Sam Costantino, an online decal retailer, agreed that anti-Hillary merchandise is the hot seller.
"Anti-Trump stuff is not selling," he told Time. "It's just the anti-Hillary stuff that's selling."
He even estimated that anti-Hillary merchandise is 100 times more popular, with more sexualized, gender-specific items making Constantino more than $10,000 since the beginning of the election.
This isn't the first time Clinton has faced these gender-specific taunts. Slate pointed out that the presidential candidate faced similar rhetoric during the 2008 election cycle when Urban Outfitters sold a Hillary Clinton nutcracker.
