Walmart's Too Busy to Talk to Joe Biden About Gun Control Adam Clark Estes
Jan 8, 2013
Joe Biden is getting his task force on gun violence off the ground this week and inviting folks to White House for some informational meetings. It's hard to imagine anyone would say no, right? Well, Walmart does unimaginable things all the time, and this is no exception. On Tuesday, a company spokesperson told The Wall Street Journal that they declined to meet with the vice president due to a scheduling conflict. What on Earth do they have going on? Presumably the only thing that could be more important than a meeting with the vice president would be a meeting with the president, and we're pretty sure the White House would've spotted that scheduling conflict before inviting Walmart to swing by.
