During remarks following last week’s GOP primary elections, Trump said Clinton is playing “the woman card.”
“Well, I think the only card she’s got going is the woman’s card,” Trump said, adding, “And, frankly, if Hillary Clinton were a man, I don’t think she’d get 5 percent of the vote.”
Clinton responded by telling supporters, “If fighting for women’s health care and paid family leave and equal pay is playing the ‘woman card,’ then deal me in.”

After Clinton’s response to Trump, the Clinton campaign decided to sell actual “woman cards” for $1.
Mini Timmaraju, the women's outreach director for Hillary for America, wrote in a fundraising email:
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 (that's a real thing Donald Trump’s senior adviser said yesterday).
“We're only making a limited number of these, so don’t miss your chance to get one,” Timmaraju added.

No word yet on whether men can cash in for a “woman card” as well.
