On the political front, Hillary is racking in donation dollars, while Donald Trump‘s campaign had a mere $1.3 million to its name as of May 31st. But what about their swag? T-shirts, mugs, bumper stickers, tote bags. Sure, online purchases won’t sway either campaign significantly, but it’s interesting to look at how the polar-opposite presidential candidates are marketing themselves through merchandise. 6sqft compared the goods from both camps, and found that while Hillary’s merchandise is much more colorful, playful, and plentiful, and even features designer collabs, the Donald sticks to his message and caters to a very specific audience.
It looks like Hillary Clinton is hoping to add some R&R to her campaigning spree at the end of August. The Post reports that the Democratic presidential candidate and husband Bill are renting a sizable mansion at 44 Broadview Road in Amagansett from Republican art collector Andre Nasser and his wife, Sotheby’s real estate bigwig, Lois. The reported price? Oh, a mere $100,000 for two weeks.
