The late-night comics on Nordstrom and Ivanka Trump’s clothing line. Take a look at our favorite jokes, then vote for yours at opinion.usatoday.com.

So what happened to President Trump’s re-assurance that his family’s business dealings wouldn’t interfere with the office of the president? I guess that, just like his promises to fight for the little guy against Wall Street (cue the executive order to tear down Dodd-Frank), has gone up in smoke.

When Trump’s top adviser pushes his daughter Ivanka Trump’s clothing business during a news interview and the president disparages retailer Nordstrom for no longer selling the product, a line has definitely been crossed (possibly a legal and ethical one).  It’s all good for Nordstrom. Sales increased after the Trump tweet — a new version of the Trump effect, according to late-night comic Trevor Noah.

And why is Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway the last person we should take clothing advice from? Comic Stephen Colbert shows us. Take a look in Punchlines, above.
