Costco quickly changed its decision to pull copies of Dinesh D’Souza’s new book “America” from store shelves.
Now, the Costco CFO is deciding to return the books to the shelves after denying that they were pulled for political reasons.
He claimed the reason they were pulled was their poor sales. “America” is number one on Amazon and on track to be a bestseller.

On “Hannity” Tuesday night, D’Souza called it “bizarre behavior” by Costco and responded that their argument about book sales is “preposterous.”
“This is clearly a political decision that they made. I think it’s because of their alliance with the Obama administration and now they’re feeling the heat so they’re trying to figure out how to wriggle out of it,” D’Souza said.
The former Costco CEO donated $100,000 in 2012, and Costco employees’ donations have totaled more than $200,000 for both of his campaigns, according to Hannity.
“The left in this country has so much intolerance that they not only try to go after me through the courts, but they also figure out: let’s try to ruin this guy’s livelihood; let’s try to make sure that people don’t see his film; let’s try to make sure they don’t buy his books. And the left is willing to wage that kind of a scorched-earth campaign through a company like Costco,” D’Souza said.
