Ivanka Trump decided it would be a great idea to take a photo of herself holding a can of Goya black beans and post it on Twitter with a message:

“If it’s Goya, it has to be good. Si es Goya, tiene que ser bueno.”

There is, however, one major problem with what Ivanka did: Since she’s a senior White House adviser, her posting on social media is in direct violation of federal ethics law, as The Independent notes:

“No sooner had she done this than critics pointed out that as a formally employed advisor to the president, Ms Trump is forbidden from endorsing products by a federal ethics provision under the heading ‘use of public office for private gain.’

“The section Ms Trump is being mocked for violation reads: ‘An employee shall not use or permit the use of his government position or title or any authority associated with his public office to endorse any product, service or enterprise.'”
Ivanka was quickly chided for her blatant disregard for the law, which seems to run in the Trump family:

The sooner we get the Trumps out of the White House, the sooner we can put an end to the crime spree they’ve been on since Donald assumed office.
