Office Sofa

Photos of White House adviser Kellyanne Conway kneeling on an Oval Office couch with her shoes on have sparked an online debate about decorum in the executive mansion. Conway is seen perched on her knees on the couch with her feet behind her in photos taken Monday while President Donald Trump met with leaders of historically black colleges and universities. Some Twitter users were quick to highlight the photos as evidence of a lack of respect for the office from Conway and the Trump administration, but much of the criticism was just tongue-in-cheek humor at the bizarre sitting position. “I have so many questions about this photo, but chief among them is why nobody is telling Kellyanne Conway to get her damn feet off the couch,” Chicago Tribune columnist Rex Huppke tweeted. I’ll say one thing for Kellyanne Conway. She’s roughly my age & if I tried to sit like that, my kneecaps would shoot across the Oval Office.— David Schneider (@davidschneider) February 28, 2017 I have so many questions about this photo, but chief among them is why nobody is telling Kellyanne Conway to get her damn feet off the couch pic.twitter.com/tU0CBS36Fe— Rex Huppke (@RexHuppke) February 28, 2017 remember when republicans used to flip out over obama oval office decorum pic.twitter.com/bGU4F7mlbX— Matt McDermott (@mattmfm) February 28, 2017 Users also noted that they felt the move was a sign of disrespect, not so much because Conway was in the Oval Office, but because she was in front of HBCU leaders. “I’m less bothered by Kellyanne’s feet on the sofa than I am by her choice to be so incredibly unprofessional in a room full of HBCU leaders,” said one tweeter.

Others felt it was not an egregious sign of disrespect, but an easy target of liberal anger directed toward a Trump administration member.

Republicans were incensed when Bill Clinton and Barack Obama treated the Oval Office with slightly less formality than did Ronald Reagan, who, famously, always wore a suit coat in the Oval Office.office sofa 2Sofas & armchairs Your lazy days will thank you Taking time to just sit back and relax – it’s one of life’s simple pleasures.
