I didn't even pass judgement on how ethical Nordstrom's decision was. Successful business =/= ethical. But if we're going to start talking about ethics, then talk about both sides. Why is it considered not ethical for a Christian bakery to refuse making cakes for a gay wedding? That's political in nature. But there was an uproar about that from the left.

Essentially, stop picking and choosing which ethical example you want to push if you don't want to be deemed a biased clown.


Because it has been determined by the courts that refusing a contract based on sexuality is discrimination. Refusing a contract because the company doesn't think it's a good business move isn't discrimination.

House Oversight Committee Chairman Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) said he will refer White House senior adviser Kellyanne Conway for an ethics investigation, after she promoted Ivanka Trump’s fashion line during a Thursday appearance on Fox News.

Chaffetz told reporters on Capitol Hill that Conway’s remarks were “clearly over the line” and “unacceptable,” and that he and the top Democrat on the committee, Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), would jointly refer Conway to the Office of Government Ethics for an investigation.

Looks like it's only the Trumpets defending Conway.

Conway crossed the line. She violated a law which does not apply to Trump.

In my view, Trump's biggest weakness will be some of his people. They better get better at this. Not much more to say.

Amazing how you people are being programmed to defend the indefensible and they constantly do it.

If Trump called for child rape you would find some defense of him



Actually Hillary is good at defending child rapists and we all know that's who you supported. Hows that projection for ya.


Trump they say actually raped a child...

Touche


Does truth mean anything to you Trump supporters anymore?

perhaps it never did and it never will!



Got a source for those claims....guess not as usual.

Kellyanne needs to be canned! ASAP!



She is just going to be cleared liek clinton by the FBI. There was no real intent to do harm because she just didnt know her posistions restrictions yet.

There was no intent to do harm. The intent was to benefit a specific private business that belongs to POTUS' daughter.

I suspect it will blow over for a first offense, especially since she's still new to the job. If/when she does it again, things will be different.

If we're talking "ethics", why not talk about the company dropping Ivanka for no other reason than making a very public political statement?



What nonsense! Do you know how much the overheads are. The company would sell POOP if they could make a decent contribution. It is all about the contribution to profits . I am sure here father would have a known this if he knew business!

Wow, you must be the most childish person on ats.
Never seen a single serious argument from you, only deflection and ignorant meme talk.
How about replying in a serious manner in the discussion?

Disgusting behavior.

Cue some stupid meme from xuenchuen....

No.

She needs to be fired! IMO

Someone needs to have a chat with her about ethics. It might work. This doesn't surprise me and I doubt it's the last from the administration.

I need to work on getting my free commercial submitted.

Let me revise one of my earlier posts:

So now you not only believe that the President is intentionally trolling near 100% of the population but also that he is instructing his people to willfully break the law in order to achieve those goals? That's surpassing Nixon levels of spite and corruption.

Why do you support this man as President?

Trump should have made sure all his people were shysters instead of regular people.

I really like the bit about ethics, tho. lol.

Dems and ethics. lol!!!
