Looks like that whole Donald Trump as President thing is gonna wind up costing his family a boatload of money, which may well wind up being the ultimate irony.
Online retailer Shoes.com has dropped all products carrying the name of Ivanka Trump, the President-elect’s daughter. They are publicly saying they did so because the products “were not selling well,” but Cleveland.com reports the real reason was in response to the #GrabYourWallet campaign which is encouraging consumers to boycott any business that sells Trump products.
In October, marketing expert Shannon Coulter compiled and circulated a list of businesses that sell Trump products. Included on that list are Macy’s, Amazon, and Nordstrom. According to Cleveland.com, Shoes.com was originally on Coulter’s list, but it has since been removed since dropping the Trump brand.
Ivanka Trump has said on Good Morning America that others are to blame for politicizing her brand name as a way to strike back at her father:
“I never politicized that message. People who are seeking to politicize it because they may disagree with the politics of my father, there’s nothing I can do to change that.”
Good luck with those falling sales, Ivanka. By the time your daddy leaves the White House, you might be lucky to have two pennies you can rub together. But don’t worry because Daddy Dearest can always steal some more money for you.
