Walmart is coming under massive fire from customers for selling merchandise on their website that calls for the impeachment of President Trump, something that many feel is a bad idea with such a large portion of folks being supporters of the current administration and the agenda it’s promoting across the country.
Ryan Fournier, the chairman for the group Students for Trump, was the first person to discover the merchandise on the Walmart website. He then posted a tweet confronting the retail giant for their inclusion of these products, thus kicking off the blowback that’s certainly going to end up hurting their bottom line.
In a Monday tweet, Fournier wrote, “@Walmart why are you selling Impeach 45 baby clothes on your website????? … What kind of message are you trying to send?”

According to a Tuesday report by Fox News, the company selling the “Impeach 45” merchandise is called Old Glory, and Old Glory apparently isn’t the only manufacturer of Trump impeachment merchandise — Fox reported that three other companies were featured on Walmart’s online marketplace that also sold similar goods.
Now here’s the thing. The website also sells “Make America Great Again” merchandise too. It’s not like Walmart is attempting to silence conservatives for making their voices heard or anything like that. They are selling merchandise that appeals to folks on both sides of the aisle. That’s all.
There are occasions when folks on the right slip in the application of the principles they believe in and end up acting just like those on the left they criticize by having knee jerk reactions to things.
This is definitely one of those times. If the pro-Trump gear suddenly disappears then we know there’s something going on. Until then, is holding a boycott over a company selling products to a specific audience really the right course of action?
It’s time for the right to stop majoring in the minors.
