Clear-Cut Example Of Kellyanne Conway Breaking The Law Comments (0)

Screen Shot 2017-02-09 at 11.24.33 AM(Video still via Fox News)

Kellyanne Conway, Not-My-President Trump's Baghdad Bob, has lied through her teeth, demonstrably, on numerous occasions.

Now, we have a clear case of Conway flagrantly breaking the law.

Think Progress notes that Conway cheerfully violating a federal ethics law barring the endorsement of any product by a government official; this includes non-elected officials.

In addressing the flap between Trump and Nordstrom — which dropped his daughter's brand because it was not selling — Conway said the following on Fox & Friends:

“Go buy Ivanka’s stuff,” is what I would tell you. I hate shopping, but I am going to go get some myself today. This is just — it’s a wonderful line, I own some of it, I’m just gonna give a free commercial here, go buy it today, you can buy it online.

I think the best response to this would have to be: “Lock her up!”

Damaged Goods: Trump Used Official POTUS Twitter To Trash Nordstom Comments (0)

Nordstrom is dropping Ivanka Trump's brand because it ain't selling.

Free market.

Donald Trump, incensed, used the official POTUS Twitter account to excoriate the retailer. Yes, the Leader of the Free World used an official U.S. social  media account to trash a major U.S. business because it was taking money out of his offspring's pockets.

Now, the White House press secretary — not the Melissa McCarthy one — is also spending valuable government time defending Trump's indefensible Twitter war with Nordstrom.

Who's the snowflake again?

Better yet: Who's the corrupt one?

Also: Trump likely tweeted during an intelligence briefing:

 

 
Fifty Shades Of GREY GARDENS: Legendary Estate Up For Grabs? Comments (0)

Tumblr_m24y09y1gj1r1ult6o1_500(GIF via Portrait Films)

It would appear the legendary Grey Gardens estate in East Hampton (not a very mean, nor a very Republican, town) may be on the market soon. Can you imagine?

Via Cottages & Gardens, which I know is always one of my daily visits:

Immortalized on screen and later in a Broadway musical, Grey Gardens hardly resembles the decrepit structure featured in the eponymous 1975 documentary that profiled its reclusive residents, “Big Edie” Bouvier Beale and her daughter, “Little Edie” Beale. The estate was sold 30 years ago to Sally Quinn and her husband, late Washington Post editor Ben Bradlee, who put it through a massive renovation that succeeded in both restoring the original grandeur and adding touches of modern luxury.

I'm not sure it would be as fun to live there now that it's all pretty, awnestly.

Note: Time and Businessweek both reference the fact that Steve Bannon, Trump's right-hand man, sincerely believes the U.S will be destabilized by a massive event (like WWII), and that this is our only way to shake off the old way of doing things and move forward.

Can you believe our country has put this subhuman filth in a position of extreme, almost unfettered power? He is one step away from the nuclear codes and — let's face facts — probably has them.

Oh, then there's this: 60 years after the Germans were Nazis, I guess we're heading there — and they're noticing it:

Delete Your (Uber) Account Comments (0)

It's time to delete Uber.

I had great experiences with Uber in L.A., where hailing cabs can be awkward. (Like the time a cab picked me up at night in WeHo. The driver proceeded to ask me about hot girls before asking if he could make a stop at the Beverly Center, where he picked up a hooker who sat, arms folded, in the front seat. I demanded to get out, he attempted to speed off, and I had to throw the door open to get him to stop so I could leave.)

In NYC, I have no use for Uber, which takes longer than finding a cab anyway.

But now, considering Uber's many business failings (and numerous horror stories about randos raping and brutalizing passengers), the company is more than just a non-option for me, it's a company I feel needs to be smacked down, hard. Last night, when the cabbies were standing up to Trump's inhumane, unvetted, unconstitutional Muslim ban, fucking Uber cut surge pricing, which undercut the action.

Five hours and many thousands of complaints later, Uber backtracked:

Screen Shot 2017-01-29 at 12.11.04 PM(Image via Twitter)

Uber's CEO, Travis Kalanick, has said he's down with working with Trump, so this is not some little mistake. Look at it this way, via Slate:

The company has been under fire for its ties to Donald Trump since Uber CEO Travis Kalanick agreed to serve on Trump’s Strategic and Policy Forum, a group of business leaders who will “meet with the president frequently to share their specific experience and knowledge as the President implements his economic agenda.” In a meeting defending his decision to work with Trump, Kalanick reportedly told concerned Uber employees that the company “would partner with anyone in the world as long as they’re about making transportation in cities better.” (This is not a very convincing defense, considering some of the world leaders who have met this criterion over the years.)

Done. End.

Here is how you can delete your account — which, by the way, you can't just do by deleting the app from your phone.

UPDATE: Uber responded to me. Nice touch that the person responding was named Akash — nice try, guys:
