Republican PAC America Rising has published its very own “response” pages to last year's Hillary Clinton coloring book Hillary: The Coloring Book by Ulysses Press, essentially sparking a partisan coloring book battle. Which is definitely (not at all sarcastically) what America needs right now.

“A Hillary Clinton coloring book was recently released,” reads the Republican opposition research firm's website. “But we noticed there was a problem—some pages were missing. Not to worry! We fixed it, and made our own Missing Pages from the Clinton Coloring Book.”

A "missing page" on, what else, Benghazi

The new coloring book pages feature Clinton testifying at the Benghazi hearings, the Clintons’ somewhat tone deaf statements about being too “broke” to afford their various homes, as well as a gleeful mocking of Clinton's “Russia Reset Button.”

Political coloring books are nothing new, particularly among the right, with Really Big Coloring Books, Inc.'s Ted Cruz to the Future making countless headlines in 2013 and The Tea Party Coloring Book For Kids weirding Americans out from sea to shining sea in 2010.

In August, the Recording Academy hired their first female CEO, Deborah Dugan. Ten days before the Grammys, Dugan was placed on administrative leave for misconduct allegations after a female employee said Dugan was "abusive" and created a "toxic and intolerable" work environment. However, Dugan says she was actually removed from her position for complaining to human resources about sexual harassment, pay disparities, and conflicts of interest in the award show's nomination process.

Just five days before the Grammys, Dugan filed a complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, and her claims are many. Dugan says she was paid less than former CEO Neil Portnow. In 2018, Portnow received criticism for saying women need to "step up" when only two female acts won Grammys. Portnow decided to not renew his contract shortly after. Dugan says she was also asked to hire Portnow as a consultant for $750,000 a year, which she refused to do.
