Walmart pulled its anti-Trump “Impeach 45” clothing and merchandise from its website amid heavy social-media backlash and a boycott by Trump supporters.
“These items were sold by third-party sellers on our open marketplace and were not offered directly by Walmart,” the retail giant said on Twitter (see tweet below). “We’re removing these types of items pending review of our marketplace policies.”
The controversy erupted when Ryan Fournier, chairman of the group Students for Trump, noticed that Walmart was selling t-shirts, mugs, and baby clothing echoing the Democratic talking point to “Impeach Trump.”
Fournier tweeted to Walmart: “Why are you selling Impeach 45 baby clothes on your website? What kind of message are you trying to send?” The corporate giant responded by saying it would pull the items, pending a review.
These items were sold by third-party sellers on our open marketplace and were not offered directly by Walmart. We’re removing these types of items pending review of our marketplace policies.

As BizPac Review has reported, many Trump supporters were upset over the merchandise and threatened to boycott the retail chain. Until recently, Walmart also sold “Hillary For Prison” t-shirts, but it appears those items were pulled from its website.
“Impeach 45” has become a rallying cry among Trump-hating liberals like Maxine Waters, who has been hailed as the “newest hero of the anti-Trump” movement by the left.
Despite 13 terms in Congress, Waters only recently gained a national profile after vowing to obstruct President Trump and promising to impeach him, even though Waters’ pal Nancy Pelosi conceded that Trump has committed no impeachable offenses.
Keep in mind that Waters has been threatening to impeach President Trump since the day he took office (before he did a single thing as POTUS), which underscores her irrational bias. The person Maxine Waters should actually impeach is her wig maker.

Maxine Waters district 43 is the worst in Los Angeles. She has been
an elected official for 28 years & her district looks like a cesspool. Maxine doesn't live in district 43. She lives in a million+ $$ mansion outside her district. Reprehensible! https://t.co/6jyiXELgC4

Meanwhile, even avowed lifelong liberals like Harvard Law professor Alan Dershowitz dismissed the “Impeach Trump” movement, saying the president has committed no impeachable offenses.
Dershowitz, a nationally recognized Constitutional Law scholar who voted for Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, has repeatedly pointed out that there’s no evidence of collusion or obstruction of justice to warrant an impeachment.
Dershowitz’s longtime liberal friends responded by shunning him socially. Dershowitz reacted by declaring: “I will not change my views as a result of these attempts to ostracize me. Silence is not my style. Cowardice is not my philosophy.”
