Will White House be Nordstrom depot?

 

“I am opposing a social order in which it is possible for one man who does absolutely nothing that is useful to amass a fortune of hundreds of millions of dollars, while millions of men and women who work all the days of their lives secure barely enough for a wretched existence.”Eugene V. Debs

Kellyanne Conway a senior adviser to President Donald Trump is a true believer and consummate team player. Her latest commercial plug on a Fox News interview was an enthusiastic , “Go buy Ivanka’s stuff!” 

Conway said. “It’s a wonderful line. I own some of it. I fully — I’m going to just, I’m going to give a free commercial here: Go buy it today, everybody. You can find it online.”

Conway described Ms Trump as ” a very successful businesswoman,” a “champion for women empowerment.”

It all seems innocent enough. Right. Wrong.

Federal law states that public employees may not use their positions “for the endorsement of any product, service or enterprise, or for the private gain of friends, relatives, or persons with whom the employee is affiliated in a nongovernmental capacity.”

Larry Noble, the general counsel of the Campaign Legal Center, that in his opinion, Conway “may have violated the law.”

An ethics group, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, asked for the Office of Government Ethics and the White House counsel’s office to look into the “apparent violation of law” and to “take any necessary discipline against her.”

I suppose we can imagine the new White House team scrambling to set up an on site Nordstrom product division somewhere in the WHite House wherein visitors to the grounds would be able to avail themselves brochures and product samples.

But it is still too early in the overall scheme of things to forecast if this is part of a larger commercial venture.  —  gc

 

NEWS  UPDATE

White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer at his daily briefing session with reporters earlier today when asked about Ms Conway’s comments told them”she has been advised” and left it at that. Hopefully that was not “fake news” offered to an error prone press in a clandestine manner. 🙂

  1. I can’t believe how unbelievable this farce is becoming.

  2. We have a Nordstrom store/depot in Vancouver! Will we have a Trump in charge? Only asking because I’ve never been in the store. Building may be jinxed: first tenant – Eaton’s – went out of business, the second – Sears – is pretty well dead, maybe the third – Nordstrom – will catch a fatal disease and pass it on to its US stores. 🙂

    • You have to constantly remind yourself that these are our intellectual superiors and have figured out all the loopholes that the rest of us have not considerd because we are out there making an honest living.

  4. Each and every day, we see how having money does not mean you have brains. This whole cabinet, starting with their illustrious leader, knows nothing about government. And they continue to show us how little they know every day. What a revelation, right?
