A picture of White House counselor Kellyanne Conway appearing to be lounging on an Oval Office couch has gone viral today.
Many expressed displeasure with Conway for what they saw as a show of disrespect as President Donald Trump took photos with leaders of historically black colleges.
For example, the New York Daily News characterized Conway as "making herself comfortable" on the couch in the AFP photo.
But as Fox News correspondent Adam Housley and others have pointed out, Conway was actually on the couch to take a cellphone snap of the group, which another photo clearly showed.
Here's the photo many outlets didn't publish. It explains why Conway was sitting that way. Still can't believe we're talking about a couch pic.twitter.com/iPhyr4eF7W

Below is a sampling of the liberal outrage, including from a Black Lives Matter activist, who claimed Conway was being purposefully disrespectful to the African-American university officials.

Judging from that pose on the couch, Kellyanne Conway has zero respect for the Oval office or for herself. https://t.co/tZCLPgVT5t

And also there was a lot of ridicule of that outrage...
If Kellyanne's feet on the Oval Office couch triggers you, imagine what that couch would be going thru if Bill Clinton was back in there..

Feminists are giving Kellyanne for not sitting 'ladylike' on a couch. Remember, these are the people who marched across DC in huge vaginas

Bill & Hillary Clinton stole the furniture from the Oval Office yet liberals freak out over Kellyanne Conway putting her feet on the couch.

Stuart Varney discussed the latest "outrage," calling it a "disgrace" that Jimmy Kimmel and many journalists have called President Trump a racist.
