Who says liberals are the only trusting souls out there? Kellyanne Conway (formerly Kellyanne Fitzpatrick) – CEO of the Polling Company, omnipresent cable-news figure, right-wing pundit – and her attorney husband just paid $3.09 million for a two-bedroom apartment in Trump World Tower without ever seeing the place. Insignia Douglas Elliman’s Marie Bianco sold the eightieth-floor 2,000-square-foot condo in Trump World Tower based solely on e-mail exchanges and floor plans. “They couldn’t see the apartment, because it wasn’t done,” Bianco says. The couple, who’ll keep their Virginia home, initially wanted a flat in the Metropolitan Towers, but were so impressed with the Donald’s high-tech virtual tour that they just had to go gold. (Her company plans to open a New York office this year.) The buyers were even able to slip their beloved corgi, Jesse, through the house rules. Law-and-order conservatism, after all, can only be taken so far.
