!! OMG, Oh Canada! One of the country’s largest department stores Hudson’s Bay Co. stops selling Ivanka Trump’s brand !!

One of Canada’s largest department stores, Hudson’s Bay Co. yanked all Ivanka Trump-brand products from its website and shelves on Friday and says it will stop selling her clothing, shoes and accessories at its 90 stores across Canada.

“Hudson’s Bay is phasing out this brand through the fall based on its performance. As part of our regular course of business, we review our merchandise offerings and make appropriate changes,”

the company said in an emailed statement. Ivanka Trump’s company did not respond to a request for comment. Recent retail boycotts have taken aim at Donald Trump and his family. For instance, the Grab Your Wallet campaign urges consumers to avoid shopping at stores that sell merchandise sold by the first family. In June, Canada’s CTV reported Canadian consumers were boycotting U.S. goods and trips to the U.S. after Trump insulted Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and imposed tariffs on some Canadian goods. I guess that’s what happens when you insult a country and its people!

!! OMG, LISTEN TO THIS: Jennifer Castle ‘Texas’ !!


Jennifer Castle is so talented we are tempted to compare her masterful songwriting and pitch-perfect vocals to legendary artists like Dolly Parton or fellow Canadians Kate and Anna McGarrigle. Her songs are worthy of the “repeat one” button to really let them sink in. Let her take you to “Texas” and tell us we’re wrong.
