CLEVELAND—There has been no shortage of anti–Hillary Clinton rhetoric at this week’s Republican National Convention. In fact, it has been a thematic constant, often overshadowing any and all reference to the Republican nominee himself. It’s no surprise, then, that RNC attendees and supporters of the party have followed suit—but some have taken it to a much baser level, groping at the lowest of low-hanging fruit by attacking Hillary’s gender and sexuality. In the following seven photos, you too can witness the grotesque misogyny that has clearly begun to permeate the 2016 election.
