BUSTED: Michelle Obama Caught In MAJOR Ethics Scandal… Media SILENT

On Thursday, White House counselor Kellyanne Conway told supporters to push back against retail stored dropping Ivanka Trump’s clothing line, urging them to “go buy Ivanka’s stuff,” and predictable outrage ensued.

The media quickly jumped on Conway’s self-admitted “free commercial” for Ivanka’s clothing line, claiming it may have been in violation of a federal ethics law that prohibits federal employees from using their office to make endorsements of products.

“The broader rule is that government employees shouldn’t use public office for private gain,” law professor Kathleen Clark told NPR. “They shouldn’t use it for their own personal private gain or for somebody else’s private gain.”

Indeed. We can all agree that such a law is a good thing.

With that said, let’s go back a few months to what Michelle Obama said during an interview with Vogue. According to the Washington Times, she said she used her position as First Lady to help people in the designer industry, yet wouldn’t you know it not a peep from the media about it.

More from the Times:

In an interview with Vogue, First Lady Michelle Obama explicitly acknowledged that one of the questions she considered when choosing fashion designers was, “Can I give them a boost?”

According to Vogue, Obama remarked, “There are definitely designers that I love, people I love to work with. And who they are as people matters. Are they good people? Do they treat their staff well? Do they treat my staff well? Are they young? Can I give them a boost?”

The implication here, of course, is that Michelle Obama deliberately exploited her position as first lady to “boost” the sales of private businesses.

Consider for instance Michelle Obama’s much-celebrated decision to repeatedly sport clothing from J. Crew over the course of her time in the White House. In light of her comments to Vogue, the fact that J. Crew CEO Mickey Drexler donated $35,000 to the Obama Victory Fund in 2012, according to FEC records, and the fact that J. Crew Creative Director Jenna Lyons (also an Obama donor) explicitly credited the first lady with a “huge lift” in sales, ethics crusaders targeting Conway should be equally upset with the actions of Obama.

Lovely, eh? Meanwhile, the media is having a collective meltdown because Kellyanne, just one time, told people to support Ivanka as she fields fierce opposition from leftists trying to get her clothing line dropped in stores.

Is it any wonder the American people no longer trust the media?
