Leaders from America’s Historically Black Colleges and Universities met US President Donald Trump on Monday. They met to discuss “expert insights on policy issues impacting their individual campuses”.
Ahead of the meeting, Trump joined his advisor Kellyanne Conway to welcome the delegation into the Oval Office.
Conway stole the limelight at the meeting, after a photo of her kneeling on the couch in the Oval Office went viral. She clambered up onto the couch, reportedly to take a photograph of the delegation. But little did she know that her photo would unleash a series of memes – including some about Pokemon Go.
Here’s the best of the lot:

And the Rest
Of all the Kellyanne Conway couch memes, this one is my favorite. pic.twitter.com/tM0dXdi38H— Counselor Foyle (@counselorfoyle) March 2, 2017
The Kellyanne Conway couch photo is just a distraction from Warren Beatty setting up Faye Dunaway to take the fall last night— Matt Ford (@fordm) February 28, 2017
Bill & Hillary Clinton stole the furniture from the Oval Office yet liberals freak out over Kellyanne Conway putting her feet on the couch.— Brandon Groeny (@brandongroeny) February 28, 2017
I will only be able to get mad at the way Kellyanne Conway sits on a couch if it turns out she's hiding of Trump's tax returns under her.— Josh Gondelman (@joshgondelman) February 28, 2017
Kellyanne Conway pivots so well, Ross Gellar could've used her to move that couch.#CNNSOTU— Laurie Crosswell 🌞 (@lauriecrosswell) November 27, 2016
She later issued a statement, clarifying that she was only trying to click a photograph.
Conway told Washington PostI was asked to take a certain angle and was doing exactly that. I certainly meant no disrespect, I didn’t mean to have my feet on the couch.
Either way, we’re wiling to bet she’s going to be very conscious about the way she sits in the Oval Office from now on.
