Since the Democrat Trump would supposedly be the biggest "gift" to would be
Hillary Clinton, "pink" might be described as "coded" for gender, though
I'm not sure why that would be significant in this case.

What is more interesting, however, is how on earth "small" and "petty" are
"coded words" for anything, particularly when directed at Donald Trump.
