WASHINGTON -- An online debate about decorum in the White House broke out Monday when photos showed Kellyanne Conway, an adviser to President Donald Trump, kneeling on an Oval Office couch with her shoes on.

Conway is seen on her knees on the couch with her feet behind her in photos taken while the president was meeting with leaders of historically black colleges and universities.

Some Twitter users highlighted the photos as evidence of a lack of respect for the office by Conway.

But other users showed photos of former President Barack Obama resting his feet on the office’s Resolute desk during his eight years in office.

And several others said there are bigger issues to worry about.
