Against all reason, social media lit up Monday night over a photo of Kellyanne Conway in the Oval Office with her shoes on the couch. The “scandal” quickly turned from a Twitter fight into a meme and quickly disappeared beneath coverage of the president’s upcoming address to Congress.
Nevertheless, a few articles made it into publication, including a piece on Broadly that enlisted a body language expert to analyze Conway’s position in the photo.

"scandal" MT @broadly A body language expert decodes Kellyanne Conway’s feet-on-couch scandal

So, what was the expert’s conclusion? If you could see our body language, the absence of any attempt to click on the Broadly piece would strongly suggest a complete lack of interest. How excited do you think your average body language expert gets when the phone rings, anyway?

@broadly In my body language expert opinion, she was checking the picture she just took of honored White House guests. ?

@broadly did they come up with "trying to get a good angle for a picture" cuz that's what it looks like to me? I'm no expert though.
