Buttons for sale at California GOP convention to recruit women voters.

The anti-Hillary Clinton buttons that were reportedly spotted at a California Republican Party convention are quite simply offensive and disgusting.

San Francisco Chronicle's Carla Marinucci tweeted the image above on Saturday.

When asked about the validity of the photo, Marinucci provided more details, tweeting that they were spotted outside of a VIP reception area, and later (Later, as in after the reporter tweeted news of their existence) appeared to have been removed.

The three-day convention focused attention on recruiting new Republican voters, specifically -- women -- the Associated Press reported.

That's right, some brainiac decided that the best way to attract more female voters to the Republican cause was to criticize Hillary Clinton, one of the most prominent women in politics on either side of the aisle, for her body.

The GOP is sinking deeper into irrelevance everyday.
