Hawking implies a sales pitch….this is a bunch of BS….investigate who is behind the effort to keep President Trump from doing his job and do it now! Obama has stated he will do what he can to disrupt a Trump Administration….Where is the investigation into the $$$$ Obama/Kerry gave Palestine hours before he left the White House?

Walter Shaub is an Obama holdover….clean out the Obama nest of Socialists, Marxists and anti-Capitalists….

Now they go all fangs out for Kellyann.

They can drop dead.

That is some nerve indeed considering all these years of the Clinton foundation scheming, and endless involvement of George Soros in US politics for decades.

When some heads roll at the IRS (paging Lois Lerner)and Obama’s justice department, and the CLINTON FOUNDATION, then, and only then, can they get their panties in a wad over Kelly Ann “plugging” Ivanka’s goods.

My understanding of the law, technically, Conway screwed up.

So I have questions, is this a firing offense? How much typical hypocrisy is involved here, that is who in the left’s corner has done this and gotten by with it?

I cannot see firing her, she probably did more than anyone else to help Trump win. There’s got to be a way to wiggle out of it.

So, Obama can give Solyndra and other private companies millions of dollars of taxpayer funds, can bail out General Motors and Chrysler, and that’s OK. But, jokingly hawking a friend’s products is a national scandal.

The more they curse this administration, the more they unwittingly bless this administration.

These folks should have learned their lesson by the very nature of this election, but no. They’ve doubled down on their selective outrage, and hardened their hearts all the more.

CASED CLOSED.

To the ‘Ethics Office’, continue to hamstring a new administration and find yourselves under federal indictment for favoritism in that you allowed attorneys for Barack Hussein Obama to continue without citation or investigation in lying to a federal judge as to the admittance of tens of thousands of illegal aliens into a protective status in blatant violation of a Federal Judge’s injunctive order.

Isn’t having an “Ethic office” in the District of Corruption a little retarded? They’re all crooks. That’s why the American people want the politicians out. …a government OF the people… That doesn’t say politicians. It says THE PEOPLE!

To: RatRipper

I agree.

Look at Hillary lining her own pockets not just innocently making a flub on the tube in defense of a good person.

The difference is shockingly large.

We’re talking about $100s of millions for Hillary’s own pocket, and Kellyann didn’t stand to gain anything at all.

Hillary diverted something like 85-90% of those funds to special interests.

Now Kellyann is the issue.

I’m with Lou Dobbs on this……how far does Odumbo have to go to border on sedition? If he’s sanctioning this movement in any way, it needs to be investigated and exposed (in my dreams I know). As to the money, I thought President Trump had the power to stop that money from going to those murdering thugs….has he done it? I hope so……and as far as Kelleyanne goes just draw and quarter her and be done with it, FCOL!! This administration needs our full support and prayers in trying to get this country back to a fraction of what it used to be. God have mercy on us…….;(

Kellyanne was merely responding to their negatives.

I should have spelled her name Kellyanne.

I truly think Trump is trying to do God’s will. I heard him state how much more he realized he needed God after being elected. The huge responsibility he had just taken on, caused him to rethink some issues.

That being the case, the sides are Satan and his camp against God and His camp.

I don’t think it has ever been this clear.

While this may seem like a joke to some, look at the absolutely demonic things the Leftists are doing these days, nd the Democrats are just fine with all of it.

Soros is driving their side. That guy has to be disciple of Satan to be this vile. He has centered his life on destruction and chaos.

He is evil incarnate.

These are Trump’s and our enemies to death.

Ultimately, K. Conway defended Ivanka (as we all should) as a Role Model for today’s LOST ‘feminists.’ She is a loving mother, a very astute entrepreneur/business owner/political strategist/PYT devoted to Judaism; who puts AMERICA FIRST… SHE should be the face of feminism in Our Beloved Country!

It was done without any thought. Deserves a statement that she should not do it again. Nothing else.
The hypocritical outrage of the left is disgusting.

To: yoe

Even if improper, it was a spontaneous, off-the-cuff comment made in response to efforts by Trump opponents to punish his daughter simply for being his daughter. She deserves nothing more than a slap on the wrist. It was NOT part of some carefully planned marketing effort to benefit economically from the office of the presidency.


To: yoe

Conway should have been satisfied to merely send Top Secret messages over her private server. And Flynn should have merely taken a massive kickback from a Russian billionaire. Then both would be secure and untouchable.

“It was done without any thought. Deserves a statement that she should not do it again. Nothing else.”

Succinct and accurate. When Obama was president, the media were always trying to find out his favorite this or favorite that, and they promoted many things that Obama liked: books, cars, Planned Parenthood, and on and on. And Obama steered millions of tax dollars to favored businesses.

Yeah, the so-called Ethics Commission sleeps through 8 years of abuse during the Obama administration and then suddenly awakens to the crisis of a woman talking about dresses? Pure BS. Donald, show ‘em the middle finger and go on with the pile of work that still needs to be done. The woman is a real asset to your administration and giving her grief isn’t going to change a thing about how the left deals with you.
