Conway on 'couchgate:' 'I clearly meant no disrespect'

Kellyanne Conway has broken her silence on Monday's social media-fueled scandal, "couchgate."

The twittersphere lit up right after a series of photographs were released of President Donald Trump's adviser perched on her knees on an Oval Office couch with her feet behind her and her shoes on. Some pictures show Conway leaning over to take a photo of leaders of historically black colleges and universities who had gathered in the Oval Workplace to meet with the president.

The photos ignited a debate about decorum in the White Home, and Conway's respect for the workplace of the president.

"Kellyanne Conway is treating the Oval Office like her own living space," tweeted actor George Takei, an outspoken Trump critic. "Appears like she's settling in for a night of binge-watching Scandal.

In an interview with Fox News Tuesday night, Conway explained, "I was asked to take the image. We had a crowded area. We never had so many men and women in the Oval Workplace in this young administration gathering of guys women at one time to take a image. There was actually nowhere to stand. The press had come in. A couple of them had asked me to take pictures and text it to them suitable away. And I did that. I just snapped at that angle. I needed to get the better angle ... Then I texted it to a handful of of them and then it was more than in a matter of fast moments."

Conway took issue with critics who questioned her Oval Workplace etiquette.

"I, of course, respect the workplace of the president and its existing president," she mentioned. "I am glad there is such a renewed interest in showing respect for the workplace of the president. I obviously meant no disrespect. I am always amazed what truly qualifies as news on a day when there is so much of it."
