Picture: Americans rebuke presidential adviser Kellyanne Conway’s ‘disrespectful pose’ on White House sofaAmerican Politics, Headlines Wednesday, March 1st, 2017
Americans have condemned what they described as irreverent and disrespectful behaviour by a top member of the President Donald Trump’s cabinet.
Social media erupted Monday night after White House senior adviser, Kellyanne Conway, was pictured kneeling on the Oval Office couch to snap a photo of President Trump with leaders of historically black colleges.
The pictures of the Republican, who has come under fire in recent weeks for justifying the president’s travel ban, has sparked sharp criticism online as Twitter users slammed her for being disrespectful.
At one point, with her high heels digging into the couch, Conway is seen to be texting on her phone while Trump meets with his guests.
Social media users were quick to mock the adviser’s ill-advised pose.
“What are you doing on that couch Kellyanne Conway? Does not look respectful in the Oval Office,” one Twitter user said.
Another said: “To be fair we shouldn’t expect people born in barn to know any better. No respect for the highest office.”
Trump was meeting with the leaders of the nation’s historically black colleges and universities at the White House, committing to a partnership between his administration and the schools.
Conway has faced scrutiny over her conduct as an adviser to the president. Last week, a group of 15 legal ethics professors made a complaint to the Bar, accusing her of misconduct.
