The liberal media has been scraping the barrel to find things about the Trump administration to become outraged over, and the latest photo coming from the Oval Office may be a new low.
While the real headline should have been about President Trump meeting with numerous leaders from the nation’s historically black colleges, the actual headlines are about Kellyanne Conway’s position as she sat on a couch in the Oval Office. As she prepared to take photos of the president with his guests, she had her knees tucked up underneath her, which sent people into a frenzy.

More on the innocuous incident from the Daily Mail:
The White House adviser has come under fierce criticism on Twitter with many calling her out for how disrespectful the pose is.
At one point, with her heels digging into the delicate fabric of the couch, Conway is seen to be texting on her phone while President Trump met with his invited guests.
Moments after taking a photo herself, she was seen checking her phone, with her legs tucked beneath her.
Users on Twitter were quick to mock the adviser’s own ill-advised pose with many shocked at the lack of formality displayed in such a formal setting.
A number of online commentators noted how casual Conway’s pose appeared to be, considering the administration was making an effort to reach out to the black community.
The Daily Mail even went as far as to selectively edit a comment from someone on their website so as to make it appear as if the person was being more critical of Conway than they actually were.
Here’s what they wrote:
Here’s what the person actually stated:
Meanwhile, back when he was in office, Barack Obama was pictured numerous times with his feet on the Resolute Desk, which was given to President Rutherford B. Hayes by Queen Victoria back in 1880.
At the time, there was no outrage from the media, liberals, or anyone, for that matter. We’ll leave it to you to figure why this is an issue now.
It shouldn’t be hard…
