Kellyanne's Learning Curve

By Douglas V. Gibbs
AuthorSpeakerInstructorRadio Host

Kellyanne Conway has misspoke, got into a little trouble promoting Ivanka's products, and now has been caught in a photograph just making herself comfortable, casually kneeling on the couch in the Oval Office, while checking her phone.  I like Kellyanne, I really do.  She's tough, smart, and pulls no punches.  But, does she understand that her position is one that requires a bit of, I don't know, respect for the office as she works with the President of the United States, and not as a media commentator?

I get it.  The leftist mainstream media went from puppy dogs under Obama to watch dogs under Trump, and they are looking for anything, and everything, to criticize the Trump administration about.  So, why give them fodder?  Why do these things we just know they are going to crawl all over?

As Donald Trump's senior adviser Kellyanne Conway should know better.  Especially since she has come under fire so many times, already.

The image was captured by an AFP photographer.  Conway's appearance on the couch with her shoes on as Trump poses for a photo with leaders of historically black colleges and universities looks way too much the way a teenager would look crawled up on the couch in mom and dad's living room.  It's funny, though, 
that the media didn't even mutter when Barack Obama had his feet propped up on the furniture in the Oval Office.

Conservative critics also chastised Obama for unbuttoning the previous Oval Office dress code that called for a suit jacket and a tie.

So, a message to Kellyanne.  "I love ya, but let's keep the vultures off ya by keeping a little bit of a respectful tone for the position, and the furniture, could ya?  After all, you no longer represent you.  You represent the President of the United States."

actually it's an edited pic and check my FB and you see the truthful image of what she was doing. Full knowledge of the situation makes for a better opinion.
