Uh Oh... Trump Boycott Just Hit Home for Some Folks

Let's face it. Asking people to boycott Nordstrom's until they drop Trump-related merchandise probably isn't that big of a request. How many of us are shopping at Nordstrom's on a regular basis?

But shit got real for some people now that the National Organization for Women has asked consumers to boycott cult-like grocery retailer Wegmans until they pull Trump wines from their shelves.

According to an article in the Washington Post, Wegmans' VP of Media Relations said "individual shoppers who feel strongly about an issue can demonstrate their convictions by refusing to buy a product. When enough people do the same, and sales of a product drop precipitously, we stop selling that product in favor of one that’s in greater demand."

FYI, the picture used for illustration is of a chocolate and wine bundle from the Trump Winery website called "Taste of Trump". Ew.
