We implore you to jog your memory wayyyyyyyyyy back to Oct. 19, when Rihanna was photographed in New York wearing a T-shirt that was screen-printed with an older photo of glass ceiling demolisher and Democratic Presidential Candidate, Hillary Clinton, wearing a New York Yankees hat. It was a very exciting time for those of us who make our livings on the internet — not simply because it meant that fashion's resident Bad Gal was "With Her," but because it also recalled a pivotal moment in American history when, in 2014, Macaulay Culkin (?) wore a shirt of Ryan Gosling (?!) wearing a shirt of Macaulay Culkin (?!?!). 

On Tuesday, otherwise known as Election Day*, Rihanna took a page out of Gosling and Culkin's book and wore a crew neck T-shirt of herself, from Oct. 19, wearing that T-shirt of Clinton. Photographers captured her while on the set of "Ocean's Eight," which is currently filming in New York City, and the images quickly began circulating on Twitter

What a boss-ass move on Rihanna's part to realize that her earlier T-shirt moment was so iconic that she'd wear that T-shirt on another T-shirt. (Say "T-shirt" again.) Interested parties — i.e., all of us — can purchase this crew neck for $60 at Base DTLA.
