Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

Washington (AP) -- Walmart has pulled a T-shirt offered by an outside seller from its online store after a journalist advocacy group told the retailer it found the shirt threatening.

The shirt, listed on Walmart.com through third-party seller Teespring, said: "Rope. Tree. Journalist. SOME ASSEMBLY REQUIRED."

"This item was sold by a third-party seller on our marketplace and clearly violates our policy," Walmart said. "We removed it as soon as it was brought to our attention, and are conducting a thorough review of the seller's assortment."

In August, Teespring had removed a "rainbow swastika" T-shirt from its own site and said it would increase oversight of its product line.

Trump is SO sad!

Just when all his fake news talk was taking hold, they pull this tee.

I bet they'd never sell a t-shirt that read:

Rope. Tree. GOP.
Some assembly required.

#6 Why "rwing humor" is a chronic oxymoron.
