Liberal media is having a field day with a picture taken on Monday in which Trump Senior Advisor, Kellyanne Conway, has her feet up on the furniture. They’ve completely ignored the fact that there was a meeting between President Donald Trump and approximately sixty presidents of Historically Black Colleges and Universities in the Oval Office. Conway was positioned to take a picture on her phone of President Trump and the leaders of black universities and then checked her phone after the picture was taken. She seemed to be kneeling on the couch in the picture in order to get a good angle for the photo, but liberal media just jumped on the fact that she has her shoes on the furniture. Reddit blew up with liberals who could just NOT GET OVER THE FACT that someone was trying to get out of the way of press photos.
