Get your fucking feet off the furniture, @KellyannePolls. This isn't your home. https://twitter.com/kylegriffin1/status/836401197905035264 …
"Get your feet off the couch!" my mother would scream at one of her seven boys 50 times a day. Who knew there were so many frustrated mamas out there on the leftynet?
President Trump met with the presidents of black colleges on Monday in the Oval Office. It was a routine "grip and grin" for the president -- something he does half a dozen times a day. The White House photographer snapped some photos of the group for posterity.
All of this was completely routine and uneventful. Except that one photos showed Trump aide Kellyanne Conway on a sofa off to the side of the gathering with -- and I can barely contain my outrage when reporting this -- her feet curled beneath her. And...and...and...
SHE HAD HER SHOES ON!
Predictably, the lefysphere exploded in anguish at this "disrespecting" of the Oval Office. Leading the chorus of outrage at this atrocity was former famous person Keith Olbermann, who used some salty language to strike down Conway for her transgression:
New Republic Editor Jeet Heer suggested it was raaaaaacism:
Even Washington Post political reporter Chris Cillizza thought the reaction from the left was over the top:
First of all, every party not in the White House likes to express shock and outrage at the way the other side is treating this hallowed job and office. 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.
This is all par for the Internet outrage/partisan police.
Well, that's almost true. Last time I looked, there are several differences between Obama and Kellyanne Conway, not the least of which is that one of them lived at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue and the other one doesn't.
