Photos Of Kellyanne Conway At White House Spark Outrage (Photos)

Republican Party campaign manager and counselor to the president Kellyanne Conway is catching some flak on social media after a photo of her with her shoes sunk into a couch in the Oval Office went viral.

The picture was taken while President Donald Trump met with leaders from some of the United States' historically black colleges and universities, the Daily Mail reported.

At one moment, Conway was reportedly seen texting on her phone while the president met with his guests. She was also seen taking photos from the couch with her legs tucked beneath her.

Some Twitter users felt Conway's pose was disrespectful and informal.

"Shocking and bizarre," wrote one Twitter user. "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…"

"I sit on my couch like that," wrote another. "Only when I'm watching tv & having the Munchies tho."

Even proponents of Conway were disappointed with the photos.

"I'm a Kellyanne fan, but that is appalling," wrote one user. "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."

Others took a more comical approach.

This isn't the first time Conway has come under fire.

In January, Conway was criticized for her comments about the "Bowling Green massacre," an event that never took place, The Washington Post reported. Conway cleared up her statements in a tweet, claiming she meant to say the "Bowling Green terrorists," referencing the two Iraqi citizens living in Bowling Green who were arrested in 2011 for sending weapons and money to al-Qaeda.

In February, 15 legal ethics professors issued a complaint against Conway to the Bar Association, accusing her of misconduct, according to the Daily Mail.
