Kellyanne Conway, the Counselor to the President of The United States mind you, literally made a sales pitch for Ivanka Trump’s gaudy Chinese-made fashion line during a FOX News interview conducted from the White House briefing room.
"Go buy Ivanka's stuff," Conway said this morning. “It’s a wonderful line. I own some of it. I’m going to give a free commercial here. Go buy it today, everybody. You can find it online.”
What in the fuck is that? Let's think about this -- we're living in a time where a high-ranking White House official is using her influence and platform to shill for the president's daughter, who for all intents and purposes, is acting as the First Lady since Trump's wife is busy doing whatever she's doing.
How furious is everyone over this? How thin-skinned is the Trump regime?
Rep. Elijah Cummings, the top Democrat on the House Oversight & Government Reform Committee, is demanding Conway should receive "disciplinary action" for what was essentially an informercial. He said the incident "appears to be a textbook violation of government ethics laws."
Jason Chaffetz, the Republican chairman of the House Oversight & Government Reform Committee said Conway’s pimping of Ivanka's was "unacceptable” and “clearly over the line."
A little good news though: Nordstom's stock went up 7 percent today as a direct result of Trump and Conway attempting to call out the retailer, which I think is encouraging and healthy.
Sean Spicer says Conway has been "counseled," but I don't believe it -- nothing that anyone from this administration should be believed. The cracks in this administration are showing.
