Clinton campaign unveils ‘Trump yourself’ app

Cleveland — “Major loser,” “total lightweight” and “fat pig” are among the Donald Trump phrases Facebook users can brand themselves with using a new app from Hillary Clinton’s campaign.

The Democrat launched the “Trump Yourself” app Thursday. It allows users to place one of 15 filters containing an insulting phrase from the Republican presidential nominee over their profile pictures. The pictures appear similar to special ones created by Facebook to show support for various causes.

Clinton’s Twitter account promoted the app Thursday with a tweet, “discover what @realDonaldTrump thinks about people like you.”

To use the app, users must give the campaign contact information through Facebook, including e-mail addresses. Users immediately receive an e-mail thanking them for registering for an account on the campaign’s website.
