(Bloomberg) -- The White House said presidential adviser Kellyanne Conway has been counseled after she promoted Ivanka Trumps clothing line in a television interview, an apparent violation of a federal rule that bars public officials from using their positions to promote private business interests.
Her remarks, made Thursday on Fox News Channels Fox & Friends program, drew quick criticism from ethics lawyers and liberal activists. Enforcing the rule will be left up to the White House itself -- or a federal agency that has traditionally shown little interest in launching investigations, legal specialists said. At a briefing later in the day, White House press secretary Sean Spicer would say only that Conway had been counseled. He refused to elaborate.
Conways unusual product endorsement from the White House briefing room came in response to reports that retailers, including Nordstrom Inc., have been dropping Ivanka Trumps apparel due to lack of sales.

Understandable. But a mistake. IMHO.
But it’s okay for the government to arbitrate the costs of health insurance.
You gotta be real careful about what you tell people to do or not do as Potus, like “You dont blow a bunch of cash on Vegas when youre trying to save for college”.
And to be fair, he did get in trouble for saying it.
I mean you’re reeeeeeally not supposed to do that.
Outside of Leftist scum and “conservative” concern trolls, who the hell gives a **** about this?
She should dress exclusively in Ivanka’s fashions for the next month or so.
To be honest, after the left has spent the last eight years covering up the criminality and malfeasance of their leaders, I wouldn’t care if she showed up wearing a NASCAR uniform.
The Democrat Concern Trolls need to sit down and shut up.
This is a high standard. I like organizations and people. This could be quite a lists. I’m sure they will start happening by tomorrow.
In 7 states, you are FORCED by Gubmint to buy a single product, from one company, at a price you cannot bargain, under penalty of asset seizure and forfeiture.
Even if you don’t want it or need it.
Whay can’t a Gubmint employee, encourage folks to look into buying a fine product, from lots of different suppliers at all kinds of prices??
Nothing by force, just a “Check out this fine product”.
lots of hullaballooh about nothing much.
