Walmart pulls controversial 'Impeach 45' clothing from website after harsh feedback

Walmart has pulled the the controversial anti-Trump “Impeach 45” apparel from its website after receiving harsh feedback online.

The outcry sparked a #BoycottWalmart trend on Twitter as users expressed their distaste for the chain 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?”

"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," a Walmart spokesperson told Fox News.

The company that made these shirts needs to appigise

Were there ever t-shirts with anti-Obama messages? Why, yes, there were and still are. Free speech works both ways. Isn't that what we conservatives (and this site) are about?

Let liberals wear anti-Trump shirts. And let conservatives wear pro-Trump shirts - and hats.

No apologies needed.

Sure - Walmart is free to sell whatever they like.
Customers are free to spend their money elsewhere.
No issue.

The Left, whilst screaming "boycott" at the most innocuous behavior, also seems to scream about the right doing the same thing. After years of fighting a lopsided war where we unilaterally said "take the high road," conservatives have started to employ the weapons of the left, and they don't like it one bit.

I saw this bumper sticker in a Walmart parking lot a few years ago it showed Obama's picture and it read DOSE THIS ASS MAKE MY CAR LOOK BIG?
