Kellyanne Conway has been President Trump’s mouthpiece since before he stepped foot in the Oval Office. Despite her impressive educational background and her history of being in cahoots with some of the most powerful politicians, she has continued to stumble her way through a series of interviews, and has flat out lied to the media on many of the dealings that are going on behind the closed doors of the White House. Her list of snafus are adding up, and Trump’s presidential term is just getting started.
Here are a few of Conway’s biggest flubs.
1. Feet Up on the Couch
Of course, there are more pressing issues going on in our nation and around the world, but Conway caught a lot of heat when this photo was released. President Trump was meeting with dozens of leaders of historically black colleges, when Conway made herself comfy on a couch in the Oval Office. She was pictured kneeling on the furniture with her heels on as she played around on her cellphone.
Many people slammed the newly-appointed Counselor to the President, with social media users calling her “rude” and “disrespectful.” One tweet read, “Think of all the great people who sat on that couch and put your feet down.” Conway defended herself by saying she had been asked to snap a photo in a crowded room, and she had to take it at an awkward angle. She finished by saying, “I certainly meant no disrespect. I didn’t mean to have my feet on the couch.”
2. Plugging Ivanka’s Clothing Line
What many have called Conway’s “gravest gaffe yet” happened in early February when she was asked about department store Nordstrom’s decision to eliminate Ivanka Trump’s clothing collection from its stores. Conway replied with, “Go buy Ivanka’s stuff, is what I would tell you. I’m going to give a free commercial here. Go buy it today, everybody. You can find it online.”
Conway’s plug was a direct breach of ethics rules that prevent officials from using their own position to enhance the financial wealth of their associates. Trump’s team acknowledged Conway’s flub by saying they had “counseled” her on her behavior.
