Ivanka Trump Wasn’t Impressed With Kellyanne Conway’s Free Commercial

Another day, another controversy from the White House, but this time it involves the first daughter and the president’s top adviser.

Kellyanne Conway has been under fire for her comments ever since she took charge as President Donald Trump’s senior adviser. This time she landed herself into yet another controversy by promoting Ivanka Trump’s brand on television.

Conway faced backlash not only from journalists and ethics watchdogs, but this time she was slammed by the first daughter, Ivanka Trump, who “scolded” her for promoting her brand from the White House. A source close to Trump said that his daughter chastised Conway for “dragging her brand into an ethics mess” and told her not to mention it again on TV.

Soon after the interview, White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer said that Conway has been “counseled” after she made the comments. However, she tweeted that she had the president’s support.



Conway’s comments of “go buy Ivanka’s stuff” came soon after Nordstrom dropped Trump-branded products from its stores because of poor sales.



The president’s top adviser’s comments sparked ethics debate because under the federal law public employees are barred from making an endorsement of any product with whom the employee is affiliated in a nongovernmental capacity.

Conway’s comments also drew outrage on Twitter.






It’s not just Conway. Trump also faced backlash after he took to Twitter to rant and attack Nordstrom for dropping his daughter’s clothing line.



The president’s tweet supporting his daughter outraged people.





This is not the first controversy that the first daughter had to face. Recently, Ivanka Trump was maligned after she ignored the havoc and suffering caused by the Muslim travel ban and shared a picture donning a $5,000 dress.
