The “Resistance” movement against President Donald Trump is less than a year-and-a-half old. And so are some of its newest members.
At least, that’s what Walmart is promoting with its new clothes.
The retail giant is selling “Impeach 45” and “Impeach Trump” baby and adult apparel for opponents of the controversial 45th president of the United States. But Walmart’s “resistance” appeal has met — for lack of a better term — resistance of its own.
On July 2, Ryan Fournier, a Trump advocate, set the Twitterverse abuzz with his discovery of Walmart’s clothing. He asked @walmart “why are you selling Impeach 45 baby clothes on your website?????” USA Today
Walmart released a line of clothes supporting the IMPEACHMENT OF TRUMP!!

Old Glory is the company that sells the “Impeach 45” apparel and it’s not the only one. A quick search on Walmart.com revealed three other companies selling Trump impeachment merchandise.
Walmart hasn’t shied away from controversial clothing in the past. In December 2016, Walmart stopped selling merchandise with the caption “Bulletproof – Black Lives Matter” after the National Fraternal Order of Police, a police advocacy group, attacked Walmart for “profiting from racial division.” Moreover, in November 2017, the company sold a shirt that read ““Rope. Tree. Journalist. SOME ASSEMBLY REQUIRED” before being pulled.
Walmart is all about making as much money as they can and treating their employees like garbage and the customers like cattle. The company has proven in the past that they could care less about right vs wrong and that boycotts do not bother them in the least.
