On Tuesday, the RNC tried using Twitter to hawk President Donald Trump-themed merchandise ahead of this Sunday’s annual celebration of moms:
Its tweet promoted a pink “Make America Great Again” hat and water bottle and a “Women for Trump” T-shirt and button. All are available to purchase from Trump’s official website, with proceeds going to the Trump Make America Great Again Committee.
Perhaps unsurprisingly, the majority of respondents to the post were not exactly overjoyed with the gift ideas:
Really? You even make mother’s day about Trump?
Don’t talk to us about what mothers want as you dictate what we do w/ our bodies. Nor when you want to defund CHIP for kids bc your deficit hawks suddenly care how fiscally awful you tax break will be for gov’t. pic.twitter.com/CfuMFQZpZm
