Kellyanne Is Not The First To Put Her Feet On The Furniture, Nor Will She Be The Last. A Lot Of Smoke But No Fire

Make yourself at home, Kellyanne! White House adviser is taken to task after she makes herself comfortable on the Oval Office couch while wearing her heels as Trump hosts leaders of black colleges 

  • Kellyanne Conway, counselor to President Trump, was seen in a series of photos in the Oval Office on Monday
  • Conway can be seen kneeling on a couch and taking pictures of Trump during his meeting with the leaders of historically black colleges and universities
  • Agence France-Presse posted images on Twitter with many quick to weigh-in 
  • Climbing on the sofa has been explained as Conway trying to get a better angle to take a photo on her phone
Kellyanne Conway has been caught on camera kneeling on a couch in the Oval Office with her high heels on, while President Donald Trump posed for a photograph with the leaders from some of the country's historically black colleges and universities.
The White House adviser has come under fierce criticism on Twitter with many calling her out for how disrespectful the pose is.
At one point, with her heels digging into the delicate fabric of the couch, Conway is seen to be texting on her phone while President Trump met with his invited guests.

Moments after taking a photo herself, she was seen checking her phone, with her legs tucked beneath her.
Users on Twitter were quick to mock the adviser's own ill-advised pose with many shocked at the lack of formality displayed in such a formal setting.
A number of online commentators noted how casual Conway's pose appeared to be, considering the administration was making an effort to reach out to the black community.
'Shocking and bizarre. How do you get that comfortable in your boss's office? Especially in front of guests? Just when you think this administration couldn't shock you anymore...' wrote one user, while another thought the pose was more appropriate for someone at home: 'I sit on my couch like that. Only when I'm watching tv & having the Munchies tho.' 
Even so-called Kellyanne fans were dismayed by the lack of respect shown by the President's counselor: 'I'm a Kellyanne fan, but that is appalling. My mother never let us put our feet on the furniture! She sits in a desk chair with both feet & shoes bundled up under her in full view of the public as she scrolls through her phone.'

The outrage over Conway's sitting position is simply the latest in a long line of criticism aimed at adviser.
She has faced scrutiny over her conduct as an adviser for a number of things. 
Last week, a group of 15 legal ethics professors made a complaint to the Bar, accusing her of misconduct.
Over the last month, she has come under fire for her comments on the 'Bowling Green massacre' (which never took place) and later her remarks touting Ivanka Trump's fashion line during a television interview.

Despite Conway's apparent lackadaisical approach, some commentators recalled the conservative outrage when former President Barack Obama was photographed putting his feet on the desk in the Oval Office.
'Ronald Reagan never entered the Oval Office without a jacket. Obama poses for crotch shots with foot on desk,' tweeted broadcaster Ezra Levant at the time. 
Mr Obama was often pictured with his feet on the Resolute desk, which was given to President Rutherford B. Hayes by Queen Victoria in 1880. 
In the various photos throughout his two terms as President he would often be seen discussing affairs of the state with his advisers and counselors in a relaxed pose.
Yet whether debating tragic events or vital economic policy, the president was often more reclined than those around him with his feet resting on White House furniture.
