While President Donald Trump is usually the one who is caught up in controversy, members of his administration have appeared to follow in his footsteps. After a picture of Presidential Counsel Kellyanne Conway kneeling on a couch in the oval office went viral, the former campaign manager decided to offer a clarification.

Conway on the couch

On Monday afternoon, a large group of leaders from historically black colleges and universities met with Donald Trump in the Oval Office at the White House. With Black History Month coming to an end, the former host of "The Apprentice" decided to end the month by signing an executive order that will help prioritize historically black universities and colleges, while strengthening their fiscal stability and improving infrastructure, while also helping to provide job opportunities for graduates.

The order was officially signed on Tuesday, but was discussed with the leaders beforehand. During the meeting, Kellyanne Conway attempted to take a group photo, and did so while kneeling down on a couch in the Oval Office. The picture quickly went viral and was used against the presidential counsel, with liberal critics of the administration mocking how the image came across. During an interview on the February 28 edition of "Lou Dobbs Tonight," Conway spoke out.

After praising the African-American leaders for attending the meeting with the president, Kellyanne Conway went on to explain what happened in the moments prior to viral picture being sent out.

"I was being asked to take a picture in a crowded room with the press behind us," Conway said. "I was asked to take a certain angle and I did just that," she continued, before adding, "I certainly meant no disrespect."

Harsh words for the left

In response, host Lou Dobbs asked Kellyanne Conway about the alleged "hypocrisy and venom of the left" for accusing her of being "disrespectful" to the White House.

"It is venomous. It is vicious. It bothers my children to be frank with you," Conway went on to say. "I have 24/7 secret service protection because there are people out there who do vicious harm," she noted, before once again doubling down on her claim that she "meant no disrespect" to the presidency.
