Smith Is Hot

Democrats can't get enough of Jack Smith. He's an even bigger hero to them than Robert Mueller or Anthony Fauci were. The online store Etsy has more than 50 Smith-themed products, including "Mr. Smith Goes to Washington" T-shirts, mugs, water bottles, and thermos bottles. Zazzle has Smith-themed hats, pillows, tote bags, aprons, and even baby blankets for prosecutorial-minded babies. Redbubble has Smith stickers and iPhone cases. Classifiedshirts has sold 1,600 Smith-themed items so far. Smith was asked what he thinks about all these companies selling Smith-themed swag. As usual, he declined to comment.

Smith is getting his 15 minutes of fame but it won't last. If Fulton County DA Fani Willis indicts Trump in August, as she has strongly hinted she will do, that will inevitably be followed by Willis hats, mugs, water bottles, thermos bottles, pillows, tote bags, aprons, and probably baby blankets. After all, she's a lot smoother than the bearded Smith. (V)
