Only a day after she formally announced her run for the White House, Rand Paul began hocking a novelty Hillary Clinton hard drive in his e-store to remind shoppers of her recent email scandal

The product description reads “Non-working. Heavy use. Formerly used as email server.” And the clever ad copy underscores the dig.

CLEARANCE SALE! You’ve read about it on the news, now you can get one for yourself. Hillary’s Hard Drive. 100% genuine erased clean email server. Buyer beware, this product has had heavy use and it currently is no longer working, but that doesn’t mean it’s not valuable to someone. Anyone? 

Paul has a reputation for not taking politics too seriously and even created a parodic Pinterest account poking fun at the former first lady and secretary of state. 

If this is what mudslinging looks like in the age of the Internet, the Daily Dot is interested to see what other comedy comes out of the 2016 campaign season.
