Costco’s CFO, appearing on Fox News The Kelly File, said the book will be returned to shelves while adamantly denying the books were pulled for political reasons.
“America” co-producer Gerald Molen was on “The Kelly File” to discuss Costco’s decision and subsequent reversal. He said the situation is strange, since the book was released on June 1 and pulled July 1, coinciding with the release of the film.
Costco’s CFO instead blamed the book’s departure on shoddy sales. “America” is currently number one on Amazon.
Megyn Kelly noted that the former CEO of Costco is a huge Obama donor and asked Molen if he thinks that there’s a connection. “I see a connection, certainly,” Molen said. Costco said the book will return to shelves within two weeks. “Why wait the two weeks? Why not do it right now? Why not show the American people that they mean what they say? I’ll be suspect until I see it happen, and even then I’ll always be a little suspect of why they did this in the first place,” Molen said. source
