b) You are in for a blummin' treat.

Kellyanne Conway is the woman who brought us alternative facts.

She also fully made up a terrorist attack, called the Bowling Green Massacre.

Kellyanne Conway is also the woman who turned a TV appearance into an illegal and inethical advert for Ivanka Trump's clothing line.

The quirky soul, that loves America so much she literally wore it to Trump's inauguration, is back doing odd stuff again, and we live for it.

Kellyanne sat on a sofa in the Whitehouse's Oval office in the funniest way possible.

Now, what is clear is that she was actually trying to get a good snap of the group behind her, which, we all know, can be a tricky business.

But she also straddled the sofa *still in her heels* in the Oval Office.

In front of her boss, their guests (the president and leaders of the nation's historically black colleges and universities), and this photographer.

And people are going absolutely bonkers for it.

Some people saw it as a serious sign of disrespect.

Dare we say some of these tweets are a little...sexist?

If you think it is symbolic of racial relationships between the government and citizens, fair enough.

If you think it's just a funny way to sit, we feel you.

But we're not up for using such gendered terms as 'classy' and 'slutty', because whether we like her or not, remember when they go low, we go high.

Some people have pointed out some hypocrisies with the criticism, by saying Obama used to put his feet up.

But so did all Presidents, the problem seems to be her role, the place and, most importantly, their company.
