2. Plugging Ivanka’s Clothing Line

What many have called Conway’s “gravest gaffe yet” happened in early February when she was asked about department store Nordstrom’s decision to eliminate Ivanka Trump’s clothing collection from its stores. Conway replied with, “Go buy Ivanka’s stuff, is what I would tell you. I’m going to give a free commercial here. Go buy it today, everybody. You can find it online.”

Conway’s plug was a direct breach of ethics rules that prevent officials from using their own position to enhance the financial wealth of their associates. Trump’s team acknowledged Conway’s flub by saying they had “counseled” her on her behavior.
