As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

White House: Conway Plugged Ivanka’s Stuff “Inadvertently”

Ms. Conway hasn’t said anything particularly shocking or false in the last couple of weeks, though she did kneel on the White House couch, which I didn’t think was a particular danger to the republic. So maybe she’s back on the right track.

From the Washington Examiner:

Kellyanne Conway, counselor to President Trump, promoted Ivanka Trump’s fashion line “inadvertently” and “without nefarious motive,” the White House concluded in a letter to the Office of Government Ethics.

“Upon completion of our inquiry, we concluded that Ms. Conway acted inadvertently and is highly unlikely to do so again,” Stefan C. Passantino, a White House deputy counsel for compliance and ethics, wrote in the letter to the watchdog. “It is noted that Ms. Conway made the statement in question in a light, off-hand manner while attempting to stand up for a person she believed had been unfairly treated and did so without nefarious motive or intent to benefit personally.”

  1. I saw it. It was a throw-away line. She was walking off the TV set when she said it.
    Nothing more.
    There was no threat if someone didn’t buy anything, no promise of goodies if one did buy something.
    Another nit-pic ridiculous attack by a bunch of sore losers looking for anything to write about.

  2. Well it would be nice to have a little less of Ivanka for awhile. Nearly every day she is shown in the Daily Mail with a kid or two – as if she’s been Kardashian-ized. And then sitting in on conferences, at this speech or that …

    As far as criticism of our First Lady, I would remind that Jackie Kennedy never did anything she didn’t want to do and she was worshipped by many.

  3. Ms.Conway is a sweetie, and does her job well, but alas, she’s common. A lady would have more respect for the Oval Office and NOT put her feet up on the sofa–didn’t the woman have a mother or was she raised by bears? Spicer is common too, loud and hysterical.

    Doesn’t Trump want to remove all vestiges of common and trashy behavior from the White House of the Obama horror-filled years?

    Even darling First Lady Melania has the good taste to stay away from the White House–but when she shows up, can somebody tell her to forget the band-aid dresses and the flowing hair? Many aristocrats in America cherish the dignity of the White House and yearn for respectability to return after decades of human trash littered throughout the historic old residence–built by slaves whose descendants wince in despair.
