Hillary Clinton hawks ‘she was right about everything’ mugs after Trump conviction

Hillary Clinton is serving up some tea — hawking mugs that say she was “right about everything” — following former President Trump’s conviction on 34 felony counts in his New York hush money case.

“We recently had some new merch made based on a phrase I hear a lot. The design happened to be finalized today,” the former secretary of State and 2016 Democratic presidential nominee wrote Thursday in an Instagram post following Trump’s guilty verdict.

The $22 ceramic mugs feature an illustration of Clinton sipping from a cup with the phrase, “Turns out she was right about everything,” printed on it in blue writing. Clinton said proceeds from the sales would benefit her political action organization.

“With your purchase, you’ll support Onward Together groups defending democracy… and get a pretty great mug to sip tea from,” the former first lady said.

The mug pitch from Trump’s 2016 rival in the White House race came after the 45th president became the first former commander in chief to be convicted of a felony. A jury of 12 New Yorkers found Trump guilty of falsifying business records in connection with a hush money payment his former fixer, Michael Cohen, made to porn actor Stormy Daniels ahead of the 2016 presidential election, which Clinton lost to Trump.

In the hours after the verdict, the former New York senator delivered a speech at the Vital Voices Global Partnership’s annual awards gala in Washington. At the top of her remarks, Clinton, the group’s co-founder, deadpanned to the audience, “Anything going on today?” and grinned.

It’s not the first time that Clinton has eyed a fundraising opportunity — and a potential chance to troll the ex-president — when Trump’s legal woes have dominated headlines. In 2022, she highlighted a line of hats bearing the phrase, “But Her Emails,” following a report that Trump disposed of documents in the toilet of the White House. She hawked the hats again last year following an announcement of a federal indictment over his handling of classified documents.
