- The Washington Times - Tuesday, July 3, 2018

Walmart is in hot water as customers start #boycottWalmart on social media on Tuesday to protest the retail chain website’s sale of “Impeach 45” products.

The superstore’s online platform sold apparel promoting impeaching the 45th president of the United States, Donald Trump. Among the items bearing the slogan are T-shirts and a baby onesie, as well as an infant onesie. Prices reached upwards of $20 for a single item.

As counter-protestors pointed out on social media, Walmart.com also offers MAGA products for sale. 

As of Tuesday afternoon, “Impeach 45” items were no longer found on the superstore’s online platform. On the other side of the political spectrum, “Hillary for Prison” T-shirts, which were also available for sale earlier on walmart.com, also appear to no longer be available for sale.



The Washington Times reached out to Walmart Tuesday afternoon asking if the products were pulled in response to the social media pressure. We are waiting for their response.

The company has yet to issue a public statement on the controversy.

Tuesday marked the 56 anniversary since War-Mart opened for business.
