Walmart issued a ‘sorry, not sorry’ apology to GOP Sen. Josh Hawley for a tweet criticizing the lawmaker for his plan to object to the Electoral College certification on Jan. 6.
After Walmart tweeted then deleted their offensive post which read:
“Go ahead. Get your 2-hour debate. #soreloser.”
Kyle Plotkin, Hawley’s chief of staff, tweeted at Walmart asking if the company can “explain this one?”, after it was “mistakenly” posted by a member of Walmart’s social media team.

Casey Staheli, Walmart’s senior manager, issued a statement saying the employee meant to publish the comment on their personal account.
“We have removed the post and have no intention of commenting on the subject of certifying the electoral college. We apologize to Senator Hawley for this error and any confusion about our position,”
Umm, exactly where is the confusion that Walmart is talking about?
The tweet came from Walmarts Twitter account, and don’t get me started Walmarts ‘Error’ bs.
“Or maybe you’d like to apologize for the pathetic wages you pay your workers as you drive mom and pop stores out of business,” he added.

Sen. Hawley became the first to challenge the results of the 2020 elections in six states when Congress meets to certify the Electoral College results on Jan. 6.
Several House Republicans joined Sen. Hawley in his challenge.
Once an objection is filed, each chamber will have to debate for two hours and then vote on whether to disqualify a state’s votes.
Both chambers would have to agree to disqualify the state’s votes, which is a near impossibility.
