Walmart CEO Doug McMillon recently released a statement saying that Walmart would no longer sell handguns in its stores and calling for the issue of banning semi-automatic rifles to be reopened.
Carlson noted the interesting timing of this. As the left is geared up to punish any corporation that doesn’t jibe with its narrative, Walmart suddenly becomes “woke” and the left, which until this point had always hated Walmart with a passion, is suddenly happy with the retail giant.
“That’s a fascinating turnaround,” said Carlson. “For years, you’ll remember, Walmart was the target of coordinated attacks from the left. Progressives accused the company of destroying small towns, and of exploiting workers. Walmart hired PR consultants and union busters to push back for years.”
Carlson noted that Walmart hasn’t changed its business tactics but that the left has now stopped attacking it.
Later, the Fox News personality described in detail how Walmart’s practice of outsourcing manufacturing businesses to China has hurt the American economy.
