West Chester, PA — Televised home shopping channel QVC has announced that White House counsel and spokesperson Kellyanne Conway will be joining the network to sell Ivanka Trump’s clothing line directly to consumers. The announcement, which comes on heels of controversial comments Ms. Conway made on FoxNews’ Fox and Friends, is expected to give the President’s daughter a much-needed boost to her Chinese-made products.
“I could be more excited about this opportunity,” said Ms. Conway speaking with CNN’s Jake Tapper earlier today. “President Trump encourages us to exercise our talents in a number of venues, just like he does. So not only do I get to work in the White House, I get to be on QVC. How great is that Jake?”
QVC (an acronym for “Quality, Value, Convenience”) is an American cable, satellite and broadcast television network, and multinational corporation specializing in televised home shopping that is owned by Liberty Interactive. Founded in 1986 by Joseph Segel in West Chester, Pennsylvania, United States, QVC broadcasts to more than 350 million households in seven countries. The shopping station became infamous during the 1990s when Joan Rivers’ small dog defecated on the air, and one of the hosts sold the excrement to a woman in Twin Falls, ID for $99.95, spread over 5 equal payments of $20.00.
Ms. Conway’s Fox and Friends’ remarks were highly scrutinized, with many pointing out she appeared to have violated ethical guidelines preventing federal employees from endorsing products or using their public office to enrich friends and family. In a rare move, even Republican chairman of the House Oversight Committee Jason Chaffetz joined the chorus of voices demanding an explanation. but Ms. Conway seemed nonplussed by the blow-back.
“I think this is great news for Ivanka,” continued Ms. Conway bristling when Mr. Tapper questioned the ethics of using the Executive Branch to sell private goods.. “It all depends on how you look at it. I mean, I don’t understand why feminists are not supporting this. It’s women supporting women and I’m just glad to be able to do my part Jake. Do you have a problem with women? Don’t you think women should be successful?”
As of this morning, Ms. Conway announced that she had apologized to President Trump for not mentioning specific Ivanka product lines, but promised him that she would ‘make up for that during her appearance next week on QVC.
