  • Cotton breaks with conservative colleagues who will oppose electoral vote count

    Cotton warned that if Congress threw out the electoral votes of states such as Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin, where President Trump has alleged without evidence widespread election fraud, it would “take away the power to choose the president from the people.” He said it would imperil the Electoral College and the voice it gives to smaller states like Arkansas and help Democrats “achieve their longstanding goal of eliminating the Electoral College.” He said Congress if overrides the Electoral College’s vote, it would “take another big step toward federalizing election law.” “Thus, I will not oppose the counting of...

    Amazon CEO and founder Jeff Bezos and the heirs to Walmart have made approximately $116 billion during the pandemic even as their employees have made a fraction of that in hazard pay, according to a Brookings Institution report. Jeff Bezos and the Walmart heirs, the Walton family, have made 35 times the amount their companies gave to more than 2.5 million workers in pandemic-related hazard pay, according to the December Brookings Institution report. Amazon and Walmart have given significantly less than competitors such as Best Buy, Target and Costco.

    Sen. Josh Hawley traded sharp words with Walmart’s corporate Twitter account on Wednesday over his contention of the 2020 election results, prompting the superstore giant to apologize to the Missouri Republican. After announcing his intention to challenge President-elect Joe Biden’s electoral victory Wednesday, Walmart’s Twitter account responded, “Go ahead. Get your 2 hour debate. #soreloser,” in a since-deleted tweet. Hawley later shared a screenshot of the tweet, calling out Walmart for what he called “insulting condescension.”

    Walmart apologized to GOP Sen. Josh Hawley on Wednesday after a tweet from its official account called the Missouri lawmaker a “sore loser.” The retailer blamed a member of its social media team for the since-deleted snarky tweet, saying the employee had intended to send it from their personal account. Earlier Wednesday, Hawley tweeted a statement announcing he would object to President-elect Joe Biden’s victory at the Electoral College certification process in the Senate on Jan. 6. Walmart responded to the tweet, writing: “Go ahead. Get your 2 hour debate. #SoreLoser.” Hawley, a rising star in the GOP, fired back,...

    Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) broke the internet when he announced that he would be objecting to certification of the Electoral College results Jan. 6. He also broke one of America’s leading retailers. Walmart attacked him for it in a quickly deleted tweet that read, “Go ahead. Get your 2 hour debate. #soreloser.” Hawley was ready for them, and his response was brutal. In a follow-up tweet, Hawley went for the critical blow: "Thanks ⁦@Walmart⁩ for your insulting condescension. Now that you’ve insulted 75 million Americans, will you at least apologize for using slave labor?” Hawley didn’t let up, and proceeded...

    Game over. Two women wound up in a knock-down, hair-dragging battle over a PS5 game console at a North Carolina Walmart this week, leaving both apparently bruised and empty-handed. The two women exchanged punches over the hot ticket item at a Walmart in Charlotte on Dec. 13, TMZ reported. Video of their confrontation has since gone viral. A woman with long braids can be seen shouting at another woman with a black hoodie, “What the --–- are you gonna do?” At one point, a man in a motorized scooter and a woman in a red mask try to intervene

    Walmart says it has removed ammunition and firearms from displays at its U.S. stores, citing 'civil unrest' in some areas.

'We have seen some isolated civil unrest and as we have done on several occasions over the last few years, we have moved our firearms and ammunition off the sales floor as a precaution for the safety of our...
