Kellyanne Conway Makes A Huge Mistake
White House counselor Kellyanne Conway on Thursday gave Ivanka Trump's fashion line a "free commercial" on national television from a West Wing briefing room, encouraging viewers to buy from Ivanka Trump's online fashion line. Two officials have followed up today with comments encouraging American's to buy her stuff. "I hate shopping and I'm going to go get some myself today".
Conway's unorthodox promotion of a brand may be in violation of the Standards of Ethical Conduct for Employees of the Federal Branch regarding the "use of public office for private gain". "Terrible!" Mr Trump tweeted on Wednesday.

Like her employer, Conway failed to recognize that Nordstrom's decision to drop Ivanka's clothing line was an entirely financial one - simply, her stuff didn't sell.
Ethics officials who served past administrations said Mr Trump's tweet, posted on both his personal and official accounts, was both unprecedented and troublesome.

Brewster's lawyers had argued that the requirement of the nomination form was disproportionate and in effect discriminatory.
However, Larry Noble, the general counsel for the Campaign Legal Centre, a non-political organisation in Washington DC, suggested Ms Conway had broken the law.
"It would be major progress for the White House to even acknowledge this is a violation and stop doing this", he says.
They suggested Conway's statements may have violated a law prohibiting federal employees from using their government positions "to endorse any product, service or enterprise".
With each passing day since president Trump's inauguration, whatever theoretical line may have existed between the new administration and the Trump family has become increasingly blurry.
White House press secretary Sean Spicer defended the president's reaction, saying he was a father coming to the defense of his daughter.
The controversy came after President Trump accused Nordstrom of treating Ivanka unfairly;Nordstrom had announced they would not be carrying Ivanka's clothing line any longer.
