Kellyanne Conway Kneels On Oval Office Couch, Sparks Debate

WASHINGTON (AP) — Photos of White House adviser Kellyanne Conway kneeling on an Oval Office couch with her shoes on have sparked an online debate about decorum in the executive mansion.

Conway is seen perched on her knees on the couch with her feet behind her in photos taken Monday while President Donald Trump met with leaders of historically black colleges and universities. Other photos show Conway leaning over to take a smartphone picture of the event.

Some Twitter users were quick to highlight the photos as evidence of a lack of respect for the office from Conway and the Trump administration.

Other users have countered with numerous photos of former President Barack Obama resting his feet on the office’s desk during his time in office.

Conway hasn’t weighed in on the criticism.

  3. Lets start winning wars. When I was a kid we never lost wars. Now we’re losing wars. Lets win more wars. Win Win Win.

    1. When Trump was a kid wars were worth dodging the draft for.

  4. This is what you have to report on? Everything else going on in the world and you report on this. No wonder your credibility is in the toilet.

    All I ask is that during his address tonight that he refrain from patting himself on the back with lies about how wonderful he is. Just once……….perhaps, I’m a dreamer….
