‘Act now we’ll throw in free executive order!’: Internet roasts Kellyanne Conway shilling for Ivanka
Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway raised a lot of eyebrows on Thursday morning when she went on Fox News and told viewers that she wanted them to buy products from the clothing line run by President Donald Trump’s daughter.
“It’s a wonderful line, I own some of it,” Conway gushed about Ivanka Trump’s clothing line on Fox and Friends. “I’m going to give it a free commercial here, go buy it today!”
Conway’s endorsement of Ivanka Trump’s business has now raised serious questions over whether she violated federal ethics laws that bar the use of public office for the private gain of friends and relatives.
In fact, Conway’s hawking for Ivanka was so egregious that even Fox News’s Harlan Hill suggested that she went too far.
This doesn't look good.
Love Conway, but she and Ivanka are in the admin now… can't be pushing the businesses. https://t.co/z4jyQ7Z3O0

On the less serious side of things, many Twitter users across the internet brutally mocked Conway for using her platform as an adviser to the president to shill for his daughter’s clothing line.

And if you act NOW we'll throw in a free executive order of your choice. DON'T WAIT SUPPLIES ARE LIMITED https://t.co/Q5iUFk3pDO

Somehow, I really don't think the average Trump supporter is really the target demo for Ivanka's line. Stay shameless, though, Kellyanne.
