Donald Trump, by now, really needs no introduction at all. More than being known as one of the nominees for US presidency, Trump is increasingly in the media more for his racial slurs and derogatory comments about women. Going by the number of controversial and appalling statements Trump has made and continues to, the number of people – including Republicans – who are wondering what they’ve signed up for is on the upswing.
Trump’s comments have have ranged from being outright racist to downright derogatory towards women. One of them that has really shaken the people is from an old recording in which, referring to women he says that he could “grab them by the p****y”.
The remark obviously did not go down well world-over and Trump was criticised badly for it. Keeping up with the resistance to Trump and his antics, Anna Lehane, who is reportedly in high school, wore a peculiar T-Shirt to a Trump rally. The quote of the T-Shirt read, “Grab my p***y. I dare you.”
Laura McCrystal, a woman who was attending the rally tweeted Lehane’s picture a fitting caption.

According to the tweet, Lehane apparently said, and rightly so, that it was a civic responsibility to speak out. She was lauded for making a bold statement and not keeping quiet.
Following Trump’s ‘locker room talk’, the online space has been buzzing with reactions. Lehane’s T-shirt wasn’t only appreciated across social media sites, but also fell in line with a series of pussy (and we mean cats here) memes that were inspired by Trump’s comment.
