Nordstrom's Decision to Ditch Ivanka Is Really Getting to These Women Trump Voters

Earlier this month, Nordstrom dropped Ivanka Trump's line of clothing, citing declining sales. For Grab Your Wallet co-founder Shannon Coulter, the retailer's decision was nothing short of a triumph.


Following the release of the infamous Access Hollywood tape, Coulter drew up a list of companies carrying Trump family products, including Ivanka's. "We have to wait until they don't carry these products anymore," Coulter says of Nordstrom, Bloomingdales, Dillard's and Macy's, among others.

A week after Nordstrom had ditched Ivanka, President Trump was still fuming:

A Nordstrom spokesperson has reiterated the move was purely a financial decision. But now Trump supporters are picking up the demagogue's mantle, as evidenced by a new viral video of shoppers descending on the department store.

"No money for Nordstrom," declares Laurie Ray, a resident of Maricopa County, Arizona, which just so happens to have given Trump more votes than any other county in America. "Because they caved."

Meanwhile, Trump voters' "cash-waving rampage" gave Ivanka the number-one selling perfume on Amazon this week.
