Trump’s counselor Kellyanne Conway draws ire for kneeling on White House sofa

WASHINGTON: A counselor to US President Donald Trump could face disciplinary action after she was pictured kneeling on a White House sofa with her shoes on. The image of Kellyanne Conway sparked a social media fury with the photo taken as President Trump posed with leaders of historically black colleges and universities. Many Twitter users were quick to berate Conway, with many calling her body language a sign of “disrespect”. “Conway with her shoes on the couch in Oval Office – consistent with general level of disrespect Trump team has shown,” tweeted one user. “The new stock photo for ‘white privilege,'” wrote another Twitter user, as the image showed Conway surrounded by a large number of standing black people. The head of the US Office of Government Ethics urged the White House to investigate Conway after the incident, saying she should face disciplinary action.
