When tweets popped up showing various items of clothing, from T-shirts to onesies, for sale on Walmart’s website reading “Impeach 45” or “Impeach Trump,” there were immediately calls to boycott the retailer. Walmart isn’t the producer of the items — rather, they’re sold by third-party merchants on its platform, not unlike Amazon marketplace — but that detail wasn’t understood when links to the items were posted to Twitter.
#BoycottWalmart soon became a trending topic on the social media platform. As expected with fans of the president, the ALL CAPS and exclamation points were plentiful.
Walmart released a line of clothes supporting the IMPEACHMENT OF TRUMP!!
Just another company that clearly wants to dig their own grave!
Walmart YOU’RE DEAD TO ME! Bye bye!!! https://t.co/SoV7KEqDH4

It’s worth noting that are pro-Trump items for sale on Walmart’s website, including Make America Great Again hats clothing items for Trump’s re-election. Still, Walmart said they would remove the offending items from third party retailers. No word on whether they will remove other politically incendiary items such as those which inexplicably call for Obama’s impeachment, but I suppose Walmart knows where its proverbial bread is buttered.
It’s hard to fathom that the Trump demographic would actually boycott Walmart, of all places, but I guess the retail giant did not want to take any chances.
The #BoycottWalmart fracas did bring inspire humor on Twitter.
#BoycottWalmart if you are a snowflake who can’t live with the fact that they sell T-Shirts with slogans on them that you disagree with.

If you really want to own the libs you should protest in front of Walmart wearing “Great Value” diapers. #BoycottWalmart

MAGAts have decided to #BoycottWalmart because the lil’ trumpflakes don’t like the Impeach 45 shirts being sold there.
