O’Reilly Replacement Already on (Forced) Vacation

O’Reilly’s “frat boy” buddy Jesse Waters is already in “time out”, less than a week into supposedly replacing his mentor who was fired.

His sin? Using sexual innuendo, men’s locker room “humor” on Ivanka Trump.

World Class stupid.

Jesse Watters announces a surprise “vacation” after his Ivanka Trump quip

Déjà vu: Watters follows the path of his mentor, Bill O’Reilly, meaning we may never have to hear from him again

Fox News host Jesse Watters could not even make it a week in his new prime-time slot without offending his audience and colleagues. Watters announced that he is taking an abrupt vacation after his offhand comment about Ivanka Trump stirred a controversy.

“I’m going to be taking a vacation with my family, so I’m not going to be here tomorrow,” Watters said during Wednesday’s “The Five.” “I’ll be back on Monday, so don’t miss me too much.”

Last week, Watters scored a promotion to be a co-host on “The Five” after Fox News reshuffled its prime-time slate to accommodate O’Reilly’s departure. Watters had been a roving correspondent for “The O’Reilly Factor” and even hosted a spinoff show called “Watters World.”

Alas, Watters’ young, burgeoning career as a conservative pundit could be in danger. The last time a Fox News personality announced an unanticipated vacation, he never returned. On Tuesday, Watters made an inappropriate remark about the president’s daughter.

“It’s funny, you know, the left says they really respect women and then when given an opportunity to respect a women like that they boo and hiss,” Watters said. “So I don’t really get what’s going on here, but I really liked how she was speaking into that microphone.”

Dumping the Trump Brand – TJ Maxx and Marshall’s join dumping Trump

Poor Ivanka Trump – she just can’t get a break marketing off her Dad’s name. The issue isn’t so much her, or her products…It’s the sleaze level of trying to capitalize on her Dad’s position.

Goodbye, Ivanka!

T.J. Maxx tells employees to hide Ivanka Trump merchandise and toss signage in the trash

Things are spiraling downward for First Daughter Ivanka Trump’s fashion business.

In the past week, several retailers have announced that they will no longer be selling her clothes, and now the New York Times reports that retailers T.J. Maxx and Marshalls have both decided to stop making Trump’s clothes a featured brand at their outlets.

The Times obtained a copy of a note sent to T.J. Maxx and Marshalls employees from parent company TJX Companies that instructed them to “not to display Ivanka Trump merchandise separately and to throw away Ivanka Trump signs.”

“We offer a rapidly changing selection of merchandise for our customers, and brands are featured based on a number of factors,” a TJX spokesperson told the New York Times.

So far, retailers Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, Belk, Jet, and ShopStyle have announced plans to discontinue sales of Ivanka Trump’s fashion line. President Donald Trump on Wednesday took to Twitter to publicly lash out at Nordstrom for treating his daughter “so badly.”

Boycott Puts Ivanka Out of Nordstroms

Not sure Ivanka is guilty of anything, except being a Trump and supporting her dad..And marrying a complete low life sleazebag.  One of the big reasons business and politics shouldn’t mix.

Boycotts of Chumph supporters are working. Ivanka is just the first to fall.

As to a pro-Trump counter boycott – don’t make me laugh so hard! If Trump products were sold at Walmart – there would be a concern about kickback from the great, dead Red Zone. Nordstroms is very upscale and their stores are concentrated in, or near high income Markets.Don’t go there without your wallet!

Nordstrom Is Officially Dropping the Ivanka Trump Brand

Nordstrom (JWN, -2.21%) said on Thursday that it would stop selling Ivanka Trump items this season because of the controversial brand’s performance, a move that follows boycotts by some shoppers who are angered by her father, President Donald Trump, and his White House policies.

The luxury retailer, which has faced calls for months to dump Ivanka Trump merchandise, said that Nordstrom switches out about 10% of its assortment each year to refresh it as a matter of course in running its business, culling lines that aren’t selling well enough.

“We’ve said all along we make buying decisions based on performance,” a Nordstrom spokeswoman told Fortune in an emailed statement. “In this case, based on the brand’s performance, we’ve decided not to buy it for this season.”

Ivanka Trump’s brand had been the target of the grassroots “Grab Your Wallet” campaign, which maintained a list of retailers it recommended shoppers boycott.

Nordstrom recently began phasing out items from Ivanka Trump’s collection on its website, which carries some 2,000 brands. A few heavily discounted items remain for sale on the site.

The retailer has carried items by Ivanka Trump since 2011. In an email to staff obtained by Fortune in November, Co-President Pete Nordstrom recognized the conundrum and said he was aware of boycott threats from customers.

“No matter what we do, we are going to end up disappointing some of our customers. Every single brand we offer is evaluated on their results—if people don’t buy it, we won’t sell it,” he said.

The company also responded at the time to the criticism on Twitter, saying: “We hope that offering a vendor’s products isn’t misunderstood as us taking a political position; we’re not.”

The whole contretemps illustrates how perilous the tense U.S. political climate can be for retailers. When President Trump called many Mexicans killers and rapists during his campaign in mid-2015, Macy’s (M, +5.17%) dropped his clothing collection sold there, earning the department store chain a lot of vitriol from his supporters.
