Somewhere there is a cave with a bunch of wolves wondering why the human girl they raised from birth has abandoned them for D.C.
Kellyanne Conway, famous fact-contortionist, managed to contort herself into an awkward, shoes-on kneel on a sofa in the Oval Office — while the President of the United States, surrounded by presidents of historically black universities and colleges, stood in front of her. What?
You can take the girl out of the cave, but you can’t take the cave out of the girl. Yes, clueless Conway managed to crouch on the couch snapping pictures in such a breathtaking show of disrespect for the African-American visitors and the office of the President of the United States that you’ve got to wonder if she’s ever lived inside before.
Yeah, yeah, supposedly Conway only knelt on the couch in her heels to snap a photo or, as the other story floating around goes, to get out of the way of someone else taking pics. Evidently someone else WAS snapping pics — because she’s starring in them. As for getting out of the way, clearly she didn’t or she wouldn’t have been in the photo to begin with.
Yes, rack it up to another embarrassing incident by wolf girl. This is what happens when you let feral animals into the house. Does she know how to work the indoor plumbing?
Of course the Twitterverse immediately brought up the photo of President Obama with one foot on the desk, saying that this showed the true lack of respect for the Oval Office. Hey — it was HIS office. And he wasn’t entertaining a visiting group of high-brow dignitaries at the time.

In case no one’s informed Conway, the office that’s round? It’s not yours. And when that round office is filled with visiting college leaders, you don’t act like you got a 30 on your SATs.
Good thing she isn’t trying to get into a college — for sure she would be rejected.
First off, how did she not understand that it’s disrespectful to squat on a couch when the President and all his visitors are standing?
Better than that though, are the expressions of the visiting college presidents around who have turned to stare at her. They are in such shock at her insanely horrible manners that they look like the scene in “The Producers” where the camera pans to the audience as the Nazis start singing “Springtime for Hitler.” Shock, disgust, embarrassment.
But Conway’s such an ill-mannered yutz that she continued to stare at her phone without even noticing the bewildered visitors’ faces.
Conway decided to snap a photo of Trump surrounded by presidents of historically black universities and colleges from her comfy Oval Office couch.
But, Conway’s not the only one who showed bizarre insensitivity to the history of black education and to the leaders of the HBUCs in attendance — and what they represent.
Anti-public education/pro-voucher Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, issued a truly bewildering statement after the meeting that stated, in part, “HBCUs, are real pioneers when it comes to school choice.” Choice?
That’s like saying Jews formed their own clubs because no-Jews-allowed WASP country clubs just weren’t to their liking. How insensitive and hideous are these people now in power?
In 40 short days Trump and his staff have taken us from elegance and eloquence to low blows and low rent.
Just makes you want to sing, doesn’t it? Anybody know the score from “The Producers”? If you don’t know the words, just howl.
