Trump aide Conway draws ire for kneeling on White House sofa

Maggy DONALDSON AFPFebruary 28, 2017

Big risk for markets is reaction to Trump's tax plans: Pr... US President Donald Trump's senior adviser Kellyanne Conway has come under fire after a picture of her casually kneeling on a couch in the Oval Office was widely shared on social media. In an image captured by an AFP photographer, Conway appears on the couch with her shoes on as Trump poses for a photo with leaders of historically black colleges and universities. Wall Street Journal columnist Bret Stephens was among those taking aim at Conway, suggesting that aides under previous administrations would have elicited even greater outcry.

Shoes on the sofa is a disgrace?

....what about Bill Clinton and the white stain on Monica's blue dress? .....that lewd activity was in his ORAL OFFICE wasn't it?

Is all this nonsense CIA generated domestic propaganda?

I could not possibly care less about this issue, until they show me their article they wrote about Obarky putting his shoes on the White House Oval Office historical desk.

Yes, when compared to letting hundreds of high-power sniper rifles walk into the hands of Mexican drug cartels, knees on a sofa are a major crisis.

I don’t recall Barbra Streisand’s jumping on the Lincoln bed drawing much interest from the press.

I doubt it, more likely just the press this time.

And yes, the cigar event happened in the Oval Office.

I guess the reason Monica Lewinsky didn't raise a "greater outcry" is because she knlet in front of the couch in the Oval Office.

Was she supposed to remove her shoes?

Kellyanne is a high energy gal, and she wouldn't be the first adult woman I've seen to sit in such a manner in a business environment, though she would be the oldest.

A minor infraction at worst. If this is the best they can come up with, she's doing fine! Suddenly the party of "change" is constantly concerned about "long standing Tradition".

What about Zero with his shoes up on the Resolute Desk? And the media wonders why we think they are biased.

Also, I don't see her shoes on the couch. Perhaps she took them off someplace else, or not. She was taking a photo of the group, and, perhaps, this was the only way to get everyone in the photo -- it was a large group. I'm not that upset by it. The Resolute Desk, however, is a piece of history. That I did take umbrage with.

Linda Bloodworth-Tomlinson and Markie Post jumping up and down on the bed in the Lincoln Bedroom:

Tomlinson-Post Lincoln Bedroom

Where was the libs outrage then? That's the same bed that President Lincoln's son Willie died in on February 20, 1862.

I believe this was a setup by Kellyanne and Trump to force media to show Trump with the black leaders. You wouldn’t know about the meeting otherwise; Trump-hating media wouldn’t have reported on it.

As a rule I prefer Reagan like decorum in Oval Office; he never even removed his coat. But Trump and Kellyanne have to be creative to get around the haters in the media, so good on them
