Kal Penn Mocks Kellyanne Conway’s Couch Photo on ‘Designated Survivor’ Set

Kal Penn, back in the White House — albeit the fake White House — is taking aim at Kellyanne Conway.

The “Designated Survivor” star posed for his own photo, kneeling on an Oval Office couch, that replicated the White House senior adviser’s own pose.

“Kal-E-Anne,” he captioned the photo.

Penn, 39, is shown squatting on the couch with his suit pants cuffed above his knees, pointing at something on his cell phone.

Conway was the subject of outrage after striking a similar pose while photographing President Trump’s meeting with leaders of historically black colleges and universities Monday.

She explained later that she “meant no disrespect,” but blamed an unnamed reporter for stirring up trouble.

“I was being asked to take a picture in a crowded room with the press behind us. I 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,” she said on Fox Business Network’s “Lou Dobbs Tonight” Tuesday.


“If we started the trend here, where people are outwardly talking about greater respect for the Office of the President and its current occupant, then perhaps that’s something positive that came out. But I of course meant no disrespect.”

Penn, known best for his role in the “Harold & Kumar” series, left “House” in 2009 to join the Obama administration as an Associate Director in the White House Office of Public Engagement, a position he held on and off until 2011.
