Hillary Clinton Selling T-Shirts

Ladies and gentlemen, get ready for some sizzling political drama! Hillary Clinton found herself in the hot seat on social media after reacting to former President Donald Trump’s guilty verdict by promoting “She was Right” merchandise. The online backlash was swift and fiery.

In an Instagram post on Thursday, the former Democratic presidential nominee unveiled a new coffee mug bearing the phrase, “Turns out she was right about everything.” Clinton wrote, “We recently had some new merch made based on a phrase I hear a lot. The design happened to be finalized today. With your purchase, you’ll support Onward Together groups defending democracy … and get a pretty great mug to sip tea from. Link to purchase in my profile.”

However, not all of Clinton’s followers were thrilled about her timing. The comment section lit up with criticism. One person bluntly stated, “You should be in jail.” Another follower added a jab referencing her husband, Bill Clinton’s, connection to Jeffrey Epstein: “Why didn’t you warn your husband Bubba Clinton about spending time with Jeffrey Epstein, if you were right about everything?”

Another scathing comment read, “Turns out we were wrong about everything we believed you stood for. Warmonger. Genocidist! If I donated a penny, I would be owed change.” One person didn’t miss the chance to bring up the Benghazi incident, reminding Clinton of her controversial foreign policy decision in Libya that led to the tragic terrorist attacks in 2012: “Except Libya,” the person wrote.

The context for this social media storm is the unprecedented guilty verdict in Trump’s New York trial, marking the first time a former U.S. president has been convicted of a crime. Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg led the case, which centered on 34 felony counts of falsifying business records.

The charges were related to Trump’s alleged efforts to conceal damaging information during the 2016 election through a “catch-and-kill” scheme. Prosecutors argued that Trump improperly masked reimbursements to his former lawyer, Michael Cohen, for a $130,000 payment to Stormy Daniels by classifying them as legal expenses.

Trump has denied the affair with Stormy Daniels and pleaded not guilty to the charges, with his lawyers arguing that there was no intent to defraud or influence the election.

Despite this high-stakes legal battle, Clinton’s merchandise move has certainly stirred the pot, showcasing the deep divides and fiery passions in American politics today.
