"Nasty woman" the new political fashion trendBy Sazi Marroquín
Pins, mugs, caps and clothes...the unexpected "strong indpendent woman" fashion trend Mr. Trump ignited with just four words
When Donald Trump called Hillary Clinton a "nasty woman" during the third and final debate for the presidential election in the United States, he probably didn't expect women to emblazon it on T-shirts…but that is exactly what happened.
“Such a nasty woman,” he muttered into his microphone, a term he had previously used referring to both Ted Cruz and Clinton, but never before had he so publicly paired the term with the word “woman.”
Right after Mr. Trump uttered those infamous words, the Republican candidate’s insult directed at Hillary Clinton was turned on its head by supporters of the Democratic contender. #IAmANastyWoman became the feminist battle cry of the moment.
The phrase "nasty woman" went viral on Twitter and Instagram, with women reclaiming the term as their own, and calling on strong, intelligent women to share if they, too, are "nasty." In that spirit, it was only a matter of time before "Nasty Woman" merchandise was born.
Soon, all kinds of products flooded online stores; from mugs, to pins, to tote bags and even baseball caps proclaiming “Make America Nasty Again” (a play on Trump’s “Make America Great Again”), but the most popular item for the reactance, were T-shirts.
Several designs of the T-shirts have been made and every one of them has been in high demand. They were helped by the visible backing of Katy Perry as the singer wore a “Nasty Woman” creation as she visited students in Las Vegas.
And what did Hillary have to say about that? In a very when-they-go-low-we-go-high manner, she simply reminded Mr. Trump the capacity of nasty women to get things done, by tweeting “Get this, Donald: Nasty women are tough. Nasty women are smart. And nasty women vote.” quoting Senator Elizabeth Warren.
