I’m rooting for Kellyanne Conway, and here’s why: She’s great! She’s out front spouting foolishness for this low-budget, bootleg administration, and I believe two things about her that won’t change: She’s fearless and she clearly is overmatched on every television appearance she makes, and she won’t stop.


Recently she was on Fox & Friends, arguably the fakest fake-news show that has ever faked news, and she still couldn’t get off the air without putting her foot in it. Watch Kellyanne’s commercial for Ivanka Trump’s line of cruisewear and basics after the line had been pulled from Nordstrom stores:

Many argued after watching Conway’s “commercial” for Ivanka’s boo-boo-ass line of clothing that it was a clear ethical violation. And a federal watchdog released a a letter Tuesday noting that it was, in fact, an ethics violation and one that warrants more than conversation.

“I recommend that the White House investigate Ms. Conway’s actions and consider taking disciplinary action against her,” Office of Government Ethics director Walter Shaub wrote in the letter that is dated Feb. 13 and was viewed by Politico.

Last week, President Asshat took to Twitter to shake his Twitter finger at Nordstrom for hurting his baby girl. Then White House spokesman Sean “Spicy Facts” Spicer said that Conway had been “counseled” over her comments.

Shaub’s letter noted that Conway was working in an official capacity and that she “used that interview, however, as an opportunity to market Ms. Trump’s products,” and that clearly violates “the ethical principles for federal employees and are unacceptable.”

Politico reports that the letter was “sent to Donald Trump’s deputy White House counsel Susan Passantino” and “was copied to White House counsel Don McGahn as well as to Reps. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) and Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), leaders of the House oversight panel.”
