Supporters of President Donald Trump discovered disturbing clothing being sold on Walmart’s website. The shocking products have led many to start a boycott of the massive retailer.
Most Americans have to put up with the fact that many businesses they use are owned by liberals. In general, the political leanings of a company don’t matter if they provide products and services all can enjoy. Sometimes a business owner lets politics get in the way of their service, as in the case of the Red Hen restaurant.
When it comes to online retailers, none are bigger than Amazon and Walmart. Millions of Americans use Amazon, but blanch at the fact that its owner is liberal. Not only is Jeff Bezos liberal, but he owns The Washington Post, a newspaper that regularly bashes the president.
Many have turned to Walmart as an alternative. The retailing giant has often been considered patriotic and all-American. They embrace our country’s values and traditions. Not to mention, they sell a wide variety of products at an affordable price. There’s no way Walmart would contribute to the disgraceful behavior we’ve been seeing from the left. Right? Wrong.
Users have discovered a line of clothing being sold on Walmart’s website. They were disgusted that Walmart would feature clothes with this one shocking message. It has inspired numerous people to call for a boycott — until Walmart takes down the products.
Walmart has found itself on the receiving end of a torrent of outrage after it was discovered Monday that the superstore was selling anti-Trump “Impeach 45” apparel on its website.
The outcry sparked a #BoycottWalmart trend on Twitter as users expressed their distaste for Walmart promoting the impeachment of President Trump, echoing some Congressional Democrats.
Ryan Fournier, chairman of the group Students for Trump, was one of the first to discover Walmart was selling the clothing item, according to the International Business Times. He asked the company in a tweet, “What kind of message are you trying to send?” [Source: Fox News]

It’s one thing to offer clothing with a variety of slogans and messages. But “Impeach 45”? That is disgraceful. Americans are horrified to know that there are congressmen calling for Trump’s unjustifiable impeachment. But to make it into a product? Walmart (and the company who made the shirt) is exploiting a terrible trend just to make a buck.
“Impeach 45” is yet another hate-driven stab at our lawfully elected president. Democrats still can’t accept that we elected Donald Trump. Since day one, they’ve been calling his presidency illegitimate and have tried to either block his Inauguration or remove him from office. Based on what? Nothing but their insane hatred for the man.
President Trump has achieved one win after another for the American people. Our economy is surging, with unemployment reaching record lows. Yet these liberals still accuse him of wrongdoing. For Walmart to go along with that narrative is shameful.
One user accused Walmart of joining the “far left.”

“I didn’t want to believe it. So I searched myself,” another user wrote. “This is despicable. All American Walmart? I’m out!!!”

Old Glory is the company that sells the “Impeach 45” apparel and it’s not the only one. A quick search on Walmart.com revealed three other companies selling Trump impeachment merchandise. [Source: Fox News]
Reports claim the store also sells pro-Trump merchandise, such as “Make America Great Again” hats and shirts. But that’s not the same. “Impeach 45” is not a campaign slogan, it’s an attack on our democracy. It is a message from liberals that they do not believe in our election system when it doesn’t go their way. It’s a pathetic insult to every patriotic American.
So how can Walmart happily sell those shirts?
This is not the first time Walmart’s been in hot water over controversial merchandise. But in the past, the company was quick to remove the products from their store. Will that be the case this time? And will that be enough to satisfy outraged customers?
