Conservatives Furious At Walmart for Selling 'Impeach 45' Shirts; Many Threaten Boycott

Walmart is offering clothing items that say 'Impeach 45' on their website, and Trump supporters aren't happy. Conservatives on social media are calling to boycott Walmart for the anti-Trump gear. The shirts themselves are being sold on Walmart's website by a third party brand Old Glory and Walmart will be reviewing the objectionable material.

Students for Trump group chairman Ryan Fournier discovered the line of 'Impeach 45' clothing on the website and called out the mega-mart for it on Monday.

"Why are you selling Impeach 45 baby clothes on your website????? What kind of message are you trying to send?" Fournier tweeted. "#MAGA supporters please retweet the hell out of this! After all @realDonaldtrump has done for American businesses, @Walmart has the nerve to sell a Impeach 45 baby shirt? Let them know how you feel about it?"

Other people have blasted Walmart as well.
"Your store is trash. your store sold antifa shirts (domestic terrorists) you guys sell resin press (to make hash oil) you guys are now selling impeach 45. SMH you guys claimed to be a Christian store at one point. Pathetic!" one person wrote.

"Walmart you are dead to me. Selling 'Impeach 45' clothes on your website was the last straw," said another.

"REMOVE ALL IMPEACH 45," one person tweeted emphatically in all caps, threatening Walmart with Trump's famous reality show trademark line, 'You're fired'. "WE ARE MANY WE ARE STRONG!!... WALMART YOU CROSSED THE LINE, REMOVE IT NOW OR ELSE!!"

Walmart's website has a number of political novelty t-shirts for sale. Many are anti-Trump. One shirt reads 'Not my president'. Another reads 'Free Melania'.

One shirt by Crazy Dog T-Shirts reads, "I just wanna go sledding, build a snowman, bundle up in blankets, drink hot cocoa & impeach Trump; you know, winter stuff."

It appears the company is trying to cash in on the political divide. They also sell pro-Trump gear, such as 'Trump 2020' t-shirts and 'Make America Great Again' shirts. One pro-Trump shirt reads, “Trump won, get over it.” Another shirt reads ‘Proud Deplorable’, mocking the term Hillary Clinton, Trump’s opponent in the election, used to describe the president’s supporters.

People began criticizing the people calling for boycotts, pointing out how an online marketplace works. "Not fulfilled by Walmart similar to how you and I can sell stuff on amazon dummy. But go ahead and be triggered. Guessing eBay is sell that stuff too, go boycott them too," tweeted one person.

A Walmart spokesperson said, "These items were sold by third-party sellers on our open marketplace, and were not offered directly by Walmart... We’re removing these types of items pending review of our marketplace policies.”
It’s not the first time that Walmart has caused a stir by letting a third party company sell an offensive t-shirt on their website. In November, a company offered a shirt on Walmart's website that read, "Rope. Tree. Journalist. SOME ASSEMBLY REQUIRED."

Many people took offense at the violent implication of the shirt, and Walmart pulled them from the website.

Other shirts caused a stir with the National Fraternal Order of Police were 'Black Lives Matter' shirts. Police argued that the company was promoting and profiting off of the racial divide in the country.
