This is part of what Andrew Breitbart meant when he said all politics is downstream from culture. Liberals are allowed to lampoon and bash Trump in games like this and on TV shows, etc. but Hillary is protected.
This gets into people’s minds, believe it or not.
The Washington Times reports:
‘Hide It Hillary’ mobile app game banned by Apple; titles like ‘Punch Trump’ approved
Apple’s App Store appears to be protecting Hillary Clinton from political satire games while allowing titles like “Punch Trump” onto the digital retail platform.
A new game called “Hide it Hillary” was denied access to Apple’s App Store because company gatekeepers said it “includes content that could be considered defamatory or mean-spirited.” The same vetting process allowed titles like “Punch Trump,” “Slap Donald Trump,” and “Smack a Trump” into the marketplace.
The conservative website Heat Street reported Friday that “Hide it Hillary,” which is now available on Google Play for Android devices, does not condone violence or even feature the former secretary of state’s image. Instead, users are tasked with putting documents into a “laptop, server, shredder, or closet.”
“I absolutely believe there’s a double standard with Apple in the sense that they have defamatory and mean-spirited Trump games available for download but none for Hillary,” developers Ansem Omega Solutions told the website. “I can’t imagine we are the first developers to experience this type of bias. In fact, one of the main reasons we chose to develop a Hillary app is because there were no Hillary apps whatsoever in the store 6 months ago when we began developing.”
The independent developers said getting approved with Google took less than one hour, while Apple’s denial came after an eight-hour wait.

No double standard there.
