Hillary Clinton was greeted on her latest West Coast fundraising trip by a number of signs posted around Los Angeles featuring her signature “H” logo — repurposed to show the Democratic presidential candidate the nearest way to a local hospital.
Bearing the distinctive blue-and-red Clinton “H” logo with an arrow pointed rightward, the signs read, “Hospital this way,” and feature the candidate’s first name with the word “ill” emphasized and underlined in red.

According to the Gateway Pundit, the signs have been spotted in front of Los Angeles-area hospitals ,including Cedars-Sinai, UCLA Medical Center, Children’s Hospital and St. John’s.
Clinton is in town for a three-day, seven-fundraiser swing through California as part of an aggressive fundraising push before Labor Day weekend.
Clinton attended a $2,700 per-person fundraiser at the home of former NBA legend Magic Johnson on Monday afternoon before heading to the Beverly Hills home of billionaire entertainment mogul and Democratic Party mega-donor Haim Saban for an intimate, $100,000 per couple dinner Monday night that drew Walt Disney Co. CEO Bob Iger, former DreamWorks Animation chief Jeffrey Katzenberg, and actors Will Ferrell and Tony Goldwyn, among dozens of other high-profile guests.
Clinton also filmed an appearance on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live! early Monday.
The Democratic nominee was expected to attend a $33,400 per-person lunch fundraiser at the home of pop star Justin Timberlake and his wife, actress Jessica Biel, on Tuesday afternoon.
The hospital signs weren’t the only pieces of street art that appeared around Los Angeles ahead of the former Secretary of State’s visit.
Street and artist and provocateur Sabo papered the intersection of highly-trafficked intersection Sunset and Vine with posters featuring the likenesses of Clinton and actor Leonardo DiCaprio swirling around in washing machines, along with $100 bills.
DiCaprio was set to host Tuesday afternoon’s fundraiser at his own Los Angeles home, but was forced to call upon Timberlake after what he claimed was a scheduling conflict. DiCaprio’s charitable foundation was linked to a $3 billion Malaysian embezzlement scandal in news reports earlier this month, though a spokesman for the Clinton campaign called implications that the actor had dropped out of hosting the event due to those reports “completely false.”
