The trademark will cover merchandise specifically for products such as hoodies, T-shirts and sportswear, if approved.
I don’t know how long the trademarking process takes, but just to be safe, I hope she also goes ahead and grabs Hot Girl Fall, Hot Girl Winter, Hot Girl Spring, and Hot Girl Bernie Sanders 2020. The brands are shameless.
