Hillary Clinton has taken a recent attack against her and turned it into a campaign gimmick.
Clinton came back swinging after being accused of playing the “woman’s card” by Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump.

But the battle took a more literal turn as the Clinton campaign launched an actual “woman card.” An email sent to supporters offered a “limited number” of woman cards for a $1 donation.

“We’ve been hearing from supporters all over the country that they’d like a ‘woman card’ of their very own — to display proudly on a fridge or pull out of their wallet every time they run into someone who says women who support Hillary must not be using our brains,” read the email.
The pink cards sport the message “Congratulations! You’re in the majority” and “Deal me in.”
Women – and men – across the nation reacted, perhaps not all in the way the Democratic candidate would have wished.
