At first readers assumed that she was playing on her phone, but it turns out she was just getting her camera ready to take a photo and several media outlets failed to include the second image:

The photo was taken during a meeting held between President Trump and leaders of the nation’s historically black colleges and universities at the White House.

President Trump and the black leaders committed to a partnership to help strengthen black education and families.

The leaders were reportedly supposed to stay in a different room for the meeting with Trump, but they and President Trump flouted the tradition and hung out in the Oval Office instead.

Trump remarked, “I don’t think there’s ever been this many people in the Oval Office.”

“We broke the record!” one of the leaders replied.

Trump agreed, “We broke the record forever!”

“I look at myself as a product of my choices, not a victim of my circumstances.” – Kellyanne Conway

Kellyanne Conway is an American businesswoman and pro-life feminist in the individualist tradition, a view according to which individual autonomy of all people takes primacy over State control.  She has suggested that black communities are targeted by privileged politicians with higher rates abortions, which she has called a “scourge on black communities,” noting agreement that “every life should have a chance, regardless of race, socioeconomic status or circumstance.”

“There’s racism in this country, and we have a terrible history of that in this nation,” she has said.

She is the first woman in US history to lead a presidential campaign to victory, often described as the brains behind many of President Trump’s operations. “I’ve been in a very male-dominated business for decades. I found, particularly early on, that there’s plenty of room for passion, but there’s very little room for emotion,” she says.  She has jokingly dismissed Twitter hate in the past with comments like: “I never knew how ugly and how stupid I was until, you know, we had Twitter.”

She describes her feminism as follows:  “There’s an individual feminism, if you will, that you make your own choices. I look at myself as a product of my choices, not a victim of my circumstances.”

Other notable individualist feminists of the past include Emma Goldman and Voltairine de Cleyre.

Voltairine de Cleyre was virulently anti-authoritarian and said that to her “it means the development of the individual as well as the assertion of the individual. It means self-responsibility, and not leader worship.”

Emma Goldman said that “the ultimate end of all revolutionary social change is to establish the sanctity of human life, the dignity of man, the right of every human being to liberty and well-being.”

The criticism of Kellyanne Conway for putting her feet on the sofa has set Twitter ablaze, with comments such as:

Media outlets included headlines such as:

CNBC: Kellyanne Conway’s feet on Oval Office couch kick off debate

and

New York Post: Was Kellyanne Conway Raised in a Barn?

Other quotes from Emma Goldman include:

“Someone has said that it requires less mental effort to condemn than to think.”

and

“Puritanism, in whatever expression, is a poisonous germ.”
