Earlier this week, Nordstrom announced that they were dropping Ivanka’s fashion line from their stores, and denied any culpability. They “denied partisanship in the decision to drop Trump’s brand, insisting the move was made as a result of poor sales months after it was hit by a grassroots boycott started by a marketing specialist and a grandmother.”
The Grab Your Wallet campaign was launched on October 11 by Shannon Coulter and Sue Atencio after they ‘simultaneously realized they could no longer in good conscience shop at retailers that do business with the Trump family’.
The campaign compiled a list of businesses that sell Trump family goods. The extensive list also includes companies that advertise on Celebrity Apprentice or executives that have raised money for President Donald Trump.
The campaign name was direct reference to the president’s infamous ‘grab them by the p***y’ remark from 2005 a leaked audio tape that led to numerous allegations of sexual assault.
In November, Nordstrom responded to a shopper’s letter calling for the company to stop selling the brand, tweeting: ‘We hope that offering a vendor’s products isn’t misunderstood as us taking a political position; we’re not.’
By Thursday evening, Nordstrom had completely taken off the first daughter’s merchandise from their website.
So anyway, first it was Nordstrom, now it’s NEIMAN MARCUS!
Neiman Marcus has also now removed Ivanka Trump’s jewelry collection from its website and some retail locations. Like Nordstrom, the company cited flagging sales, and made no mention of the boycott.
“Neiman Marcus has a very small Ivanka Trump precious jewelry business, which is comprised 100 percent of consigned merchandise (merchandise owned by the vendor),” reads the statement. “Based on productivity we continuously assess whether our brands are carried in stores, on our website, or both.”
So of course they’re going to act like there’s nothing to see here, totally not a political thing, move along people, but it IS political. It’s political because the only reason this boycott even happened is because some hypocritical seahags decided it totally offends them if a Republican candidate says something inappropriate. No word yet on how they feel about the legitimate sexual assault committed by their golden boy Bill Clinton.
Hope the hosebeasts are happy….
