Remembering Chicago Mayor Richard J. Daley…

February 13, 2017

Kellyanne’s gaffe brought back memories of Boss Daley.

=======

Big bruhaha last week when Kellyanne Conway — the first woman to ever run a successful Presidential campaign – was asked in an interview:

“So, what do you think of Nordstrom dropping Ivanka’s Trump’s line of fashions?”

“Go buy Ivanka’s stuff is what I would say,” Ms. Conway said in an interview with Fox News, speaking from the White House briefing room.

“I’m going to give a free commercial here: Go buy it today, everybody; you can find it online.”

Oops.

Double oops in this time of political correctness and diminished senses-of-humor.

According to the NY Times: “Legal experts said Ms. Conway might have violated a federal ethics rule against endorsing products or promoting an associate’s financial interests.”

Certainly an ill-advised comment, but strikes me as a molehill being elevated to mountain status.
