Someday Donald Trump Will Be PRESIDENT?

In 1995, citing it as offensive to “family values,” Walmart banned a t-shirt that shows Margaret from Dennis the Menace saying optimistically, “Someday a woman will be PRESIDENT!”

Fast-forward to 2016, and here’s a Walmart spokesperson: “Wow, it still pains me that we made this mistake 20 years ago.”

And yet I’ll bet that if you go into Walmart today, you won’t be able to find a t-shirt to purchase with anything like these words on it.

Maybe in a few weeks? But then, perhaps far-right conservatives will complain, asking for a retort shirt: “Someday Donald Trump will be PRESIDENT!” (On that one, I’d put Mussolini, Hitler, or a leaping Vladimir Putin.)

Here’s the shirt the store once said violated its “family values.”
