Kellyanne Conway is getting ridiculed on Twitter after she used an interview this morning to advertise products from Ivanka Trump.
As President Donald Trump accuses Nordstrom of unfairness for dropping his daughter’s brand over poor sales numbers, Conway appeared on Fox & Friends and said that Trump critics were attacking the POTUS by punishing his daughter’s business. During this interview, there were multiple occasions where Conway boosted Ivanka Trump’s merchandise and told Fox viewers to go out and start buying it.
“I’m going to give a free commercial here,” Conway said. “Go buy it today, everybody. You can find it online.”
Beyond the legal complications of Conway’s remarks, there were a lot of people on Twitter who were not impressed by her blatant attempt to sell the Trump brand:

Kellyanne CONWAY tells the public to “go buy Ivanka’s stuff.” Is this FINALLY enough to call “conflict of interest?”

Do NOT fight with your own SCOTUS nominee. Do NOT use the WH to push family business. These are not tough rules, for f*** sake.

Kellyanne Conway finds your failure to purchase Ivanka Trump goods disheartening and demoralizing.
