Democratic Congressman Cedric Richmond made a very inappropriate sexual comment about Kellyanne Conway. A photo of Kellyanne recently went viral of her knees on a couch in the Oval Office. Richmond joked that she looked ‘familiar’ in that position. Of course, if a Republican Congressman had said it the media would have gone wild claiming that they have proof that Republicans are sexist.
However, when Nancy Pelosi was asked about it, she refused to condemn it and instead used it as an opportunity to attack Donald Trump. “Leader Pelosi, the joke was sexist, it was disgusting. Shouldn’t the congressman apologize to Kellyanne Conway? And, honestly, where is the Democratic Party in expressing outrage about this?” asked CNN’s Jake Tapper after showing her the video.
“I wasn’t at the dinner. I’m just finding out about this. The fact is, I’m still in sort of a state of “What is going on here?” that the person who occupies the White House is a person who was on that Hollywood video, that said the crude things he says about women,” said Pelosi.
“You all are criticizing Cedric for something he said in the course of the evening — and he maybe should be criticized for that, I just don’t know the particulars. But I do, every day, marvel at the fact that somebody who said the gross and crude things that President Trump said — he wouldn’t even be allowed in a frat house, and he’s in the White House,” said Pelosi.
Tapper tried to push her again, pointing out that they have already covered Trump’s Hollywood tape extensively. But Pelosi still refused to condone Richmond.Well, I think everybody was making crude comments, and I just don’t know, I wasn’t at that dinner,” said Pelosi.
