Use Government Resources Wisely

February 15, 2017

In a TV interview, Kellyanne Conway, President Trump’s “Counselor” (nobody knows what that really means) said, “Go buy Ivanka’s stuff.”

This elegantly-phrased advertisement for the president’s daughter’s business was of course unethical (although I think she was just goofing around), and she was “counseled” herself about the matter; but now the Office of Government Ethics wants her investigated and perhaps disciplined. I assume that they’re trying to send a message to the administration that they are keeping a watchful eye on potential conflicts of interest.

It was a dumb thing to do, and if she pulls a stunt like that again, even after her “counseling”, she should be fired. But I hope nobody’s going to spend a ton of time and money on this particular matter. 

If you're going to investigate anything, investigate why a Phi Beta Kappa who graduated Magna Cum Laude from college and then got a law degree acts like such a ditz. (Is it some sneaky plan to throw us all off guard and then take over the world?)

Otherwise, save your resources—you’re going to need them.
