Donald Trump is the inspiration behind the above tee, currently retailing for $25 at Google Ghost. Fifty percent of all proceeds from sales of the shirt will go to benefit Planned Parenthood. How is it that Trump would help create anything that benefits an organization dedicated to promoting women’s reproductive health, you ask? Allow us to present the following clip of last night’s final 2016 Presidential Debate:
For those who don’t have the desire to hear Trump’s voice this early in the day, this particular exchange between candidates Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump went as follows:
Hillary Clinton: My social security payroll contribution will go up, as will Donald’s, assuming he can’t figure out how to get out of it. But what we want to do is to replenish the social security trust fund —
Donald Trump: Such a nasty woman.
Hillary Clinton: — by making sure that we have sufficient resources…
It’s worth noting that, minutes before this manterruption, Trump had said, and we quote, “Nobody has more respect for women than I do, nobody. Nobody has more.” (The room exploded with laughter, the moderator called for quiet, we at home continued laughing…)
Suffice it to say, the whole event left the public with many new Donald-isms aka meme-fodder (“Bigly,” “We have some bad hombres” and “No, you’re a puppet!” have been circulating the Internet like wildfire). Of them, “Such a nasty woman” was by far the least funny (un-bigly funny?). Plus, the timing and hypocrisy of the statement was not lost on the audience.
Fed up with Trump’s immaturity, his discriminatory — and predatory — comments about women, and his general ineptitude, feminists immediately took to social media to reclaim the phrase #NastyWoman.

When an idiot is out of place and doesn’t have a proper response to a question, he will resort to name calling. #nastywoman

I guess a woman is viewed as nasty if she has a strong opinion and isn’t afraid to stick up for her beliefs. #nastywoman

FOMO that I can’t identify as a #NastyWoman tonight but thrilled I can at least vote for one.

RT if you’re a #NastyWoman who’s headed to the polls to vote for your rights

But topical apparel retailer Google Ghost took it one step further, immediately (the shirt went live before midnight) designing a top that would not only shade Trump but benefit the healthcare organization he’s targeted throughout his campaign. The heartfelt design is cute, to-the-point and mildly Rodarte-reminiscent, wouldn’t you say?
Alternatively, if you believe a picture is worth a hundred feminist catchphrases, may we suggest making your own donation to Planned Parenthood, then nabbing this $35 Rihanna-approved gem by Trapvilla:
