“Nepotism is kind of a factor of life… We might be here because of nepotism, but we’re not still here because of nepotism. You know, if we didn’t do a good job, if we weren’t competent, believe me, we wouldn’t be in this spot.”

Conway: There’s a Nepotism Loophole

The anti-nepotism law apparently has an exception if you want to work in the West Wing because the president is able to appoint his own staff. Of course, this came about to stop maybe family members from serving on the Cabinet, but the president does have discretion to choose a staff of his liking. … So if that is true and that legal advice holds then that will open up a realm of possibilities.

— Kellyanne Conway, on “Morning Joe” asserting that Donald Trump’s family members could be included on the White House staff.
