Bully in the Pulpit: Terrible!

Permeated with the power of the presidency, Kellyanne Conway recently commanded the American public:  Go buy Ivanka’s stuff!

She called such TV oratory a "free commercial."  Since we all know that freedom isn’t free, such behavior is quite the opposite of what America stands for.

That Ivanka “is a great person” who pushes her father “to do the right thing” (why, would he otherwise do the wrong thing?) is not the point here.  Millions of deserving Americans suffer business losses without presidential salvation.

Norm Eisen, former ethics advisor to President Obama, spoke out against such abuse of power:  It is an example of why Donald Trump and his family needed to step away, needed to make a more definitive break.
