Kellyanne Conway Unrepentant For Ivanka Trump Plug:
President Trump’s adviser Kellyanne Conway was unrepentant Thursday night for using her White House position to promote first daughter Ivanka Trump’s fashion brand, despite a backlash from ethics experts and public officials.
Her comment to “go buy Ivanka Trump stuff” was made from the White House Thursday morning while talking to Fox News.
The White House said later in the day that Conway had been “counseled” about the matter.
And in a remarkable rebuke to the White House, a bipartisan letter was sent to the Office of Government Ethics Thursday, asking that office to determine whether she should receive a stronger disciplinary response, including suspension, demotion or dismissal.
Conway appeared again on Fox Thursday evening and, when asked about the uproar, said, “I’m not going to comment on that… I have nothing more to say about it.” She said that the president “supports me 100%.”
Trump Finds The Limits Of Executive Power:
President Donald Trump suffered more than a legal defeat of his immigration ban Thursday night.
He ran smack into the limits of executive power.
Three federal judges unanimously refused to restore the White House’s controversial travel ban, laying down the most significant marker yet that Trump’s vision of an administration rooted in the muscular use of executive power — similar to that he enjoyed as a business leader — will not go unchallenged.
Vogue’s ‘Diverse’ March Cover Slammed As Not So Diverse:
Vogue has been around for 125 years, but critics say not all that much has changed.
The iconic magazine’s March cover celebrates “the modern American woman” by featuring models of different ethnicities, skin tones and body types.
But readers aren’t convinced. Across social media, they’re criticizing Vogue for staying inside the fashion industry’s narrow parameters.
With Gigi Hadid, Kendall Jenner, Ashley Graham, Vittoria Ceretti, Imaan Hammam, Adwoa Aboah and Liu Wen on the cover, the magazine certainly has star power.
Snowstorm Pounds The Northeast, Affecting Flights, Closing Schools:
The Northeast was slammed Thursday with what appeared to be the most significant storm of the winter, with blizzard conditions and as much as a foot of snow in some places.
The first snow-related death was reported in New York on Thursday when a doorman shoveling snow on the Upper East Side died after slipping and falling through a glass window, New York police said.
Miguel Gonzalez, 59, of Bridgeport, Connecticut, sustained cuts to his neck and face. He pronounced dead at Metropolitan Hospital Center, according to police.
‘I Did It For Love,’ Says Mother Deported In Arizona Immigration Case:
Guadalupe Garcia de Rayos went to Mass and said a prayer before her immigration check-in Wednesday in Phoenix.
It was her eighth visit since her 2008 arrest and conviction for using a fake Social Security number. After each meeting, the married mother of two was released and went back to her family.
This time was different.
The undocumented immigrant was detained Wednesday and deported within 24 hours to her native Mexico, in what her lawyer claims is a direct result of US President Donald Trump’s crackdown on illegal immigration. US Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials claim there was nothing special about her case. She committed a crime, was placed under a deportation order, and her time had come.
