Ethics complaint filed against Ivanka Trump for promoting Goya

According to the Washington Examiner:

A left-leaning watchdog group has filed a complaint with the U.S. Office of Government Ethics about Ivanka Trump promoting Goya products on her official social media pages.

The Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington sent a letter on Friday to the Honorable Emory Rounds, the director of the government agency, asking him to determine whether the president’s daughter and adviser violated Standards of the Ethical Conduct for Employees of the Executive Branch.

The issue stems from posts to Twitter and Facebook in which Trump was holding a can of Goya beans with the caption, “If it’s Goya, it has to be good. Si es Goya, tiene que ser bueno.”

Goya CEO Robert Unanue inspired a boycott after praising President Trump at a recent event at the White House. Facing backlash, Unanue has defended his support, refusing to apologize and called the #BoycottGoya campaign circulating on social media an attempt to suppress speech.

“The circumstances would lead any reasonable person to conclude her Goya Foods posts represented an official government endorsement intended to counteract the negative effect of any boycott,” CREW said of Trump’s tweet.

Maxine Waters had this to say.

  1. As long as we’re on the subject of product endorsements:

    Hey CREW, I hear there’s this wonderful new product coming out.

    It’s called “a life.” You should go buy one!

  2. Really, now we’re suing over the crap that is on people’s social media pages. Does anyone realize that our culture has completely gone in the toilet? The movie “Idiocracy” was a dumb and bad movie, and it’s even worse seeing it turn out to be prophetic. Sober up people!!
