Independent journalist Megyn Kelly ripped into Target on Wednesday over its launch of “tuck-friendly” bathing suits, asserting during a sit-down with conservative commentator Victor Davis Hanson that women have no need of the modified transgender promotional items because women “don’t have penises.”
Target has received massive blowback over the new line and after deciding to carry the clothing line from a Satan-worshipping designer for Gay Pride month. The “tuck-friendly” swimwear that is found in the women’s section is particularly offensive to many. It is directly aimed at transgender women who still have junk in their drawers. The swimsuits also have additional material to help them flatten male appendages.

“[Target] decided to willingly partner with this clothing manufacturer to make pride month gear that includes bathing suits that are quote ‘tuck-friendly’ that have extra material around the crotch, which no woman needs because we don’t have penises down south in Rio,” Kelly snarked.
“We don’t need extra material and we don’t need tuck-friendly, but the Target CEO is out there defending this saying: ‘Look, the extra crotch wear and the tuck-friendly bathing suits are important, that this whole line in the pride department is a good business decision. it’s the right thing for a society,'” she added.

The line also outrageously included Pride items for babies and children. CEO Brian Cornell is actually proud of that and made it clear on “Fortune’s Leadership Next” podcast that he approved the campaign.
“When we think about purpose at Target, it’s really about helping all the families, and that ‘all’ word is really important,” he said, justifying the move. “Most of America shops at Target, so we want to do the right thing to support families across the country.”
“I think those are just good business decisions, and it’s the right thing for society, and it’s the great thing for our brand,” Cornell claimed. “The things we’ve done from a DE&I (diversity, equity, and inclusion) standpoint, it’s adding value. It’s helping us drive sales, it’s building greater engagement with both our teams and our guests, and those are just the right things for our business today.”

Kelly also brought up the satanist designer Abprallen whose products Target featured but have since been removed.
“So Target turned to them to make their new line of clothing, including baby onesies with rainbow patterns, and at one point, selling their Pride-related merch that read things like: We belong everywhere across the trans flag, too queer for here, cure transphobia, not trans people, and so on,” the journalist noted.

The backlash has been massive against Target which stands to become the next Bud Light example of marketing that failed to read the room. The company held an emergency meeting and reportedly moved some Gay Pride items further back in its stores in the south in an attempt to quell anger.
“If you look at the individual Targets across America, they’re feeling the wrath of the consumer,” Kelly commented on her show.
California Governor Gavin Newsom hammered Target for not standing its ground on the issue and for backing off in the slightest over it. He was enraged and falsely claimed that “black, Asian, Jewish” people and women would be “next.”
CEO of Target Brian Cornell selling out the LGBTQ+ community to extremists is a real profile in courage.
This isn’t just a couple stores in the South. There is a systematic attack on the gay community happening across the country.
Wake up America.
This doesn’t stop here.… https://t.co/1vRgukaT0g

YouTube personality Alex Stein had a field day with the “tuck-friendly” bathing suits and hilariously brought added attention to it throwing Target into the spotlight even more over the propagandic line.
“Thank you so much @Target for helping me Tuck my Junk! This is why they call me ‘Tucker Stein,'” the host of “Prime Time with Alex Stein” tweeted while donning one of the swimsuits.
