Twitter erupts over image of Kellyanne Conway kneeling on Oval Office couch

She was seen hunched on the sofa sitting on her feet as she stretched out to take snaps of the meeting on her smartphone.

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.

Mr Trump was meeting leaders of historically black colleges and universities to discuss his administration's support for the schools, including contracts and grants. While the photograph may be kind of awkward, it's not malicious and she was not being disrespectful.

Criticism of Conway's behavior came on Twitter, with one user saying "What are you doing on that couch, Kellyanne Conway?". On the other hand, one even asked, "Why Kelly Anne Conway looking like a Thot?".

Another commented: "To be fair we shouldn't expect people born in barn to know any better".

"We all believe it is critically important that lawyers in public office - especially those who act as spokespersons for the highest levels of government - be truthful", the letter said.

At least 15 law professors have signed a letter calling for sanctions of White House counselor Kellyanne Conway. To be clear, it wasn't the most dignified pose Conway could have been photographed in, but libs chose to focus on that instead of the fact that President Trump was reaching to African-American leaders.

She made an embarrassing mistake when she referred to the non-existent "Bowling Green massacre" and raised ethical questions when she promoted the fashion products created by Mr Trump's daughter Ivanka during a TV interview.
