‘Impeach 45’ clothing sparks Walmart boycott campaign

Reports indicate "Impeach 45" clothing is made by a number of manufacturers, some of which also produce items featuring with the "Make America Great Again" and "Donald Trump Speaks For Me" slogans.

Walmart, it should be noted, also sells tons of pro-Trump merch, including an array of MAGA caps, books, cologne, and this tank top with Trump, oddly, topping a tank, but it's good to see the right taking a stand for something, I guess?

Walmart became the target of Trump supporters outraged by a T-shirt sold on the company's website, leading to calls for a boycott Tuesday.

Walmart pulled the shirt - as well as other products with the same message - from its website, but not until some of the president's fans threw a fit.

The members of the Walton family - most prominently Jim, Rob, and Alice - generally hold conservative political views that align with President Trump's policies.

The hashtag #BoycottWalmart was among the top-trending topics in the United States on the social media site, racking up more than 50,000 tweets by mid-afternoon.

It's not the first time Walmart has gotten into hot water for controversial t-shirts for sale on its website.

Compared with that, the "Impeach 45" baby clothes on Walmart.com seem pretty harmless.

A spokesman for Walmart didn't immediately respond to requests for comment. But once they're approved-a process that takes a few weeks-Walmart doesn't watch every item put up for sale.

It's unclear whether these are one-off incidents, or whether Walmart is systematically removing anti-Trump paraphernalia from the site. "Tree. Journalist. Some assembly required", after facing massive backlash.

The store came under fire in November after a shirt design that read "Rope".
