After ‘Impeach 45’ Shirts Found on Walmart Site, an Uproar

The Free Press WV

It’s not every day Americans are rankled by baby clothes, but today is apparently that day. Fortune reports that Walmart is finding itself in President Trump supporters’ crosshairs after the presence of a T-shirt sloganed “Impeach 45” was found on its website. Per a tweet, searching for the phrase “Impeach 45” previously turned up 13 items, among them baby clothes. MarketWatch reports the T-shirts, which are no longer available on the site, ranged in price from $16.95 to $41.95 and were made by the brands including Old Glory, City Shirts, and Hanes. “Make America Great Again” and other pro-Trump apparel is still available on the site.

USA Today reports the chairman on Students for Trump first flagged an image of the baby onesie on Monday, with Ryan Fournier tweeting, “@walmart why are you selling Impeach 45 baby clothes on your website?????“ His find apparently spurred the hashtag #BoycottWalmart. USA Today provides a brief history of Walmart’s other recent T-shirt debacles, noting it pulled clothing that read “Bulletproof – Black Lives Matter” in December 2016 after complaints from the National Fraternal Order of Police and removed a shirt reading “Rope. Tree. Journalist. SOME ASSEMBLY REQUIRED” just shy of a year later.
