Reebok releases McConnell inspired T-shirt

The words U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell used to end a floor speech from U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren, D-Massachusetts, have become a rallying cry among feminists and Democrats, and now Reebok is putting the phrase on a shirt.
Last Tuesday, McConnell, R-Kentucky, defended the use of rule 19, a regulation that bars Senators from speaking negatively about one another during debate over U.S. Sen. Jeff Sessions, President Trump’s Attorney General.
“She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertheless, she persisted,” McConnell said on the Senate floor ending Warren’s speech.
Reebok has now turned part of McConnell’s rebuke, “Nevertheless she persisted,” into a T-shirt.
In a news release Reebok Senior Director of Brand Management Inga Stenta said that the shirts are their way of showing support for all women.
“The same sentiment has been used to obstruct women everywhere from the workforce, to the gym, to the starting line of marathons,” Stenta wrote. “And nevertheless, women persist.”
The shirts are $20, with proceeds going to the Women’s March. As of Monday morning the shirt was sold out.
