OPINION | This article contains commentary which reflects the author's opinion.

A Walmart employee that runs the social media side of things posted their personal opinion using WalMart’s Twitter account on accident instead of using his personal account, according to the Western Journal.

The controversial post response happened because Senator Josh Hawley announced that he will be formally objecting the Electoral college vote when Congress meets on January 6 to verify the presidential election.

Only when members of both houses of Congress object does the joint session devolve into two sessions.

After his announcement a the Walmart Twitter account said, “Go ahead. Get your 2 hour debate #soreloser.”

Walmart insisted it was all a mistake.

“The tweet was mistakenly posted by a member of our social media team who intended to publish this comment to their personal account,” Walmart said in a statement.

“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,” the statement said.

Hawley responded sharply, “Thanks ⁦@Walmart⁩ for your insulting condescension. Now that you’ve insulted 75 million Americans, will you at least apologize for using slave labor? 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 tweeted.

“I cannot vote to certify the electoral college results on January 6 without raising the fact that some states, particularly Pennsylvania, failed to follow their own state election laws,” the statement said.

“And I cannot vote to certify without pointing out the unprecedented effort of mega corporations, including Facebook and Twitter, to interfere in this election, in support of Joe Biden. At the very least, Congress should investigate allegations of voter fraud and adopt measures to secure the integrity of our elections. But Congress has so far failed to act,” Hawley said.

“For these reasons, I will follow the same practice Democrat members of Congress have in years past and object during the certification process on January 6 to raise these critical issues,” Hawley said.

From The Western Journal:

Democratic nominee Joe Biden has already won sufficient Electoral College votes to be the winner of the Nov. 3 vote.

President Donald Trump’s campaign has insisted that there has been voter fraud in states that include Arizona, Nevada, Georgia, Michigan and Wisconsin, as well as Pennsylvania.

However, despite numerous claims of voting irregularities, including affidavits alleging fraud sworn to by reported eyewitnesses, no court has yet ruled that widespread fraud materially affected the results of the presidential election.

Hawley announced his plan on Twitter and in a release on his Senate website.
