To be honest I don't think Walmart would have the balls to risk their shares letting third parties to put up politically charged apparel on their website and in their stores and letting the dogs (Walmart's customers) sort it out. It works both ways and it's called cause and effect.

But have fun resisting whatever fictional battle you've created.


dude that's like the headline of whats going on in America right now. everyone is fighting dreamed up caricatures of their political opponents for imaginary and conflated stakes.

I see a lot of people saying they treat workers like crap. Honestly, when I worked night shift, it was one of the best jobs I've had. I think it's because we didn't have to deal with customers and were able to just do our work and go home. Now, that said, NEVER become a supervisor or anything above. That's when you start getting treated like crap and are severely underpaid.

Boycatting Walmart before it was cool. I just don't like dealing with the other people who shop there. Place turns even little old ladies into rude b1tches.

Most walmart stock is made in China..maybe its China way of payback for the " skirmishes" over the disputed south china sea. Or more simply customer demand drives the product.

Its easy enough to wack up some 'lock up HRC' t shirts and sell em through Amazon




That is sooooo last season !

The lunacy of the rightists and their boycotts is laughable


Shouldnt communists be in perma-boycott mode of well every corporation, or are you just like some sort of 'armchair communist'?

Come to think of it, the very concept of an 'Armchair Antifa Member' would make a funny comic strip...

American retail giants Walmart have come under fire from certain sections of US consumers after a new addition was made to their online apparel department.

A line of t shirts and baby onsies in stock with the decal " Impeach 45 " have gone on sale, amid some early signs of outrage among Trump supporters. With a new # boycottWalmart now spreading throughout Twitter...there are a number of life long Walmart shoppers within Trump's base now vowing never to shop at Walmart again.


It makes you wonder...a couple of things really.

Where are Trump's base going to shop now ?
Is Sam Walton spinning in his grave?

Is no shirt...no shoes...no service true for Walmart customers ?


The fact they put it on sale there should tell you their real shopper base....

It's a little less black & white than that.

They sold a 3rd party vendor's hair net or skullcap or some damn thing under the color name "N#r Brown" not too long ago.

Make of it what you will.


Doesn't matter....the Trump supporters would never buy this and they cater to their base. That should tell you they are catering to left wing nuts.

The color of whatever they sold isn't emblazoned on the shirt. Impeach 45 is on this one. Tells me they either have really bad filters for online sales or they are catering to their base.

I find it funny that the left thinks the right are uneducated rednecks.

I would love to see just how many on both sides rely solely on social media for their political points. Pretty sure it would be heavily weighted left.

Anyone that has enough cash to blow on a t-shirt that says impeach Trump isn't as poor as they purport themselves to be.

Rinse on cold.

Air dry.

I voted for and fully support Trump, as I agree with his policies and ideals, but there's nothing here for me or my family to boycott. LOL, have you seen the mass of humanity that frequents Walmart? I mean really? I find myself in Walmart at most once per year, usually on a holiday when I have to grab something and no other place is open, and I swear I'll never enter that cess pool again each time I've done it. My God, it's an absolute hot mess nightmare of a store.

DML News reporting that Walmart has taken down the shirts.

Did a quick search on the website and all I got was tires.

Since they were selling both of these, I'd applaud them for not being biased. People want it, they sell it.

They are also on Amazon.

Didnt you get the memo? 'Transnational' corporatism is the 'Nu-Progressivism'. In 2016 after 5 years away it didnt take me long at all to pick up on that, and that was as bizarre as the trans restrooms, the bronies, and all the rest. Not that I'm into socialism / communism, but its such a sad thing the list of 'what the Democrat's did to the liberals after Dubya' (name of a OP I've had in mind forever now...).

We don't shop at the place to begin with.

China Mart



Me either. It's dirty in there.

Anyway, will it be 'China Mart' much longer? With these trade wars in progress, even Walmart might be too expensive for many people.

No don't be silly, trade wars make it cheaper for the consumer, my goodness where have you been. Everybody understands more = less.
