A spokesperson for Walmart told Reuters that the items were sold by "third-party sellers" on its open marketplace website and were not "offered directly by Walmart".

Supporters of President TrumpDonald John TrumpTrump: Democratic voters will support Republicans because of ICE criticism Coney Barrett, Kavanaugh among candidates who met with Trump: report Trump administration recommends against allowing China Mobile access to USA market MORE on Monday launched a boycott against Walmart after it was discovered the superstore was selling apparel promoting the impeachment of President Trump.

Old Glory is the company that sells the "Impeach 45" apparel and it's not the only one.

But others called it hypocritical to remove anti-Trump gear while still selling pro-Trump items.

The T-shirts weren't being sold by Wal-Mart itself, but by third-party sellers including Old Glory and Teespring Inc.

On June 27, Walmart announced that it was introducing a 3D virtual shopping tour on its website, as the retailer pours billions of dollars into beefing up its e-commerce business. Fournier wrote in a tweet directed at Walmart. In the meantime, there are plenty of other sites online to purchase a t-shirt with the same message.

The T-shirts and infant onesies sparked a Walmart boycott and caused a stir on social media.

Addendum (Ed): Or perhaps it's just another way to profit off of political passion. All of this will be embarrassments in people's closets in four to eight years, but separating a fool from his money is a long American tradition.
