Since Donald Trump’s presidential victory, liberals across the country have rallied behind a boycott of products bearing the Trump name.
Ivanka Trump was specifically targeted by a boycott referred to as #GrabYourWallet.
However, boycotts don’t always go as planned.
Sometimes, they can backfire and it appears that’s exactly what just happened on the east coast.
From Fox News:
Over the weekend, 300 members of the Prince William County chapter of the National Organization for Women called on locals to boycott Wegmans Food Markets unless the Rochester, N.Y.-based company agreed to remove Trump Winery wines at its 10 stores in Virginia. The Trump vineyard is located in Charlottesville, Va.
Despite a wave of support for many retail stores which have dropped Trump-branded products (Nordstrom announced it was dropping Ivanka Trump’s line of shoes and clothing amid a 32 percent decline in sales), the president’s supporters in Virginia fought back against the proposed boycott by heading to Wegmans and buying up as much wine as they could get their hands on.
Five of the wine varieties have sold out at two Richmond-area Wegmans stores, reports the Richmond Times-Dispatch.
Not exactly a proud moment for the left.
