Walmart’s ‘Impeach 45’ Apparel Draws Swift Outrage

Hashtag protest apparently worked, as items denigrating the current president are no longer on retailer's website

Retail giant Walmart has drawn the ire of President Donald Trump supporters after it was discovered that clothing bearing the phrase “Impeach 45” was offered on its website, Walmart.com.

The phrase is a common one for Trump critics, and Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) recently said it in Los Angeles at the “Families Belong Together” march — and she’s long been saying it.

“Impeach 45” was printed on T-shirts and infant onesies manufactured by apparel company Old Glory and posted to the Walmart site. Students for Trump chairman Ryan Fournier called attention to it Monday on Twitter, Fortune and other outlets reported, causing a social media outcry.

The outrage apparently worked; Walmart appears to have pulled the items from its website, after the hashtag #boycottWalmart quickly began trending across social media platforms.

CafePress has had “Impeach Trump” shirts, caps and throw pillows available on Walmart.com in the past as well, and still offers anti-Trump items along with pro-Trump items.

Last November, Walmart drew ire over a shirt on its site that sported the phrase “Rope. Tree. Journalist. Some assembly required,” noted The Wrap.

After complaints, custom shirt company Teespring removed the shirt from the site.
