Democrats have found a new flavor-of-the-week issue to complain about. Last week it was about the nomination and confirmation of an extremely qualified education advocate to the cabinet position of Secretary of Education. Before that, it was a constitutional pause on travel from specific countries. Now, liberals found a new bone to grab a hold of – Kellyanne Conway and her support of Donald Trump and his fatherly right to defend his daughter, Ivanka.
The Kellyanne Conway Ethics Witch Hunt Needs To Be Put To Bed Now
If you haven’t heard about it yet, the liberal media hasn’t stopped reporting about a Fox & Friends interview with Kellyanne Conway. Leading up to that interview, Nordstrom chose to give in to the complaints of a small number of consumers who are opposed to President Trump and announced they would no longer carry Ivanka Trump’s fashion line.
Trump, being the caring father he is, immediately defended his daughter by tweeting about how unfairly Nordstrom treated his daughter. The man acted not as a president, but as a father putting himself on the line for his family.
And then Kellyanne Conway got lost in the moment and encouraged viewers to give Ivanka’s brand a try. All she did was go to bat for a friend and colleague and Democrats have not stopped complaining about a breach of ethics regarding a rule forbidding federal employees from using their government positions to endorse any product, service, or enterprise.
Now, everyone (on the left) is going after Trump for his tweet against Nordstrom and Conway for supporting the president and his daughter. It’s ridiculous and completely blown out of proportion. It’s Fake News because there aren’t any real stories to cover.
But do you know what else this is? A waste of time.
While people are saying Trump’s tweet hurt the retailer’s sales, the result of it may actually be a huge boost in sales for Nordstrom as celebrities like Rosie O’Donnell and Chelsea Handler have been taking shopping spree trips to the store to protest our president.
Sure, that makes sense. You complain about the man being bad for the country and then go protest him by spending money and strengthening the economy? Snowflake logic.
But many people have thrown the word libel around, and that’s just idiotic. Libel is a written defamatory statement that can be proven to cause physical or financial harm to a person or business. And as pointed out above, Nordstrom doesn’t seem to be suffering one bit as a result of President Trump’s tweet. Add to that fact that all Trump did was say the store treated Ivanka unfairly and nothing else, and there’s no grounds for that kind of talk. He made no accusations and said nothing – we all already knew the details.
As for Conway, people need to relax. She’s not an elected or even appointed government position. She’s simply an advisor to the president.
Was her choice of words the best plan of action? In hindsight, maybe not. But she’s already been counseled by the president and his team. And you know what? Trump has her back. No surprise there. Conway was caught up in an emotional situation where Ivanka Trump and her business were unfairly targeted by a major store simply due to her association with her father.
Nothing is going to come of this because it’s juvenile. The Ethics Oversight Committee has real problems to worry about, such as inappropriate use of funds, voter fraud, and efforts by Democrats to stall President Trump’s efforts to improve our country.
The reality of the situation is that this whole incident is actually a good thing. The Trump administration will be stronger for going through it and will learn from this. The administration has only been in place for about three weeks now. In fact, the administration isn’t even complete because Dems keep holding up the confirmation hearings. Naturally, in an effort to continue the Obama debacle of the last eight years. This entire situation is just a witch hunt for liberals to complain about Trump. It needs to be put to bed immediately so the country can focus on actual, measurable progress.
