Democrat Congressman makes Vile and Demeaning “Joke” about Kellyanne Conway

This is way beyond the pale.

On Wednesday evening, Democrat Representative Cedric Richmond made a disturbing “joke” about a picture he’d seen of Kellyanne Conway in the Oval Office. The picture had recently sparked a commotion on the left because it showed Conway with her feet up on the couch in the office during President Trump’s meeting with a group of leaders from America’s Historically Black Colleges (HBCU’s).

However, Rep. Richmond went beyond the normal leftist tripe of arguing that Conway was being too casual or disrespectful in the Oval Office; he instead intimated something of a “sexual” nature.

Speaking at the Washington Press Club Foundation dinner and pointing his comments towards Republican Senator Tim Scott (R-SC), Richmond said, “You even mentioned Kellyanne and that picture on that sofa. I really want to know what was going on there because she really looked kind of familiar in that position there, but don’t answer.”

The Daily Caller published Rep. Richmond’s response to the story:

Rep. Richmond told The Daily Caller in a statement, “Since some people have interpreted my joke to mean something that it didn’t I think it is important to clarify what I meant. Last night was night of levity. Where I grew up saying that someone is looking or acting ‘familiar’ simply means that they are behaving too comfortably.”

“I decided to use that joke due to the large social media backlash over her inappropriate posture considering there were more than 60 HBCU Presidents in the room,” the Louisiana Democrat added.

Republican National Committee chairwoman Ronna Romney McDaniel tweeted, “Don’t ‘clarify,’ [Rep.Richmond] – apologize. I’d suggest using Women’s History Month to lift us up instead of knocking us down.”

 RNC chairwoman McDaniel is right. Richmond is wrong, and he needs to admit it, ASAP.

I am the supreme law of the United States. Originally comprising seven articles, I delineate the national frame of government. My first three articles entrench the doctrine of the separation of powers, whereby the federal government is divided into three branches: the legislative, consisting of the bicameral Congress; the executive, consisting of the President; and the judicial, consisting of the Supreme Court and other federal courts. Articles Four, Five and Six entrench concepts of federalism, describing the rights and responsibilities of state governments and of the states in relationship to the federal government. Article Seven establishes the procedure subsequently used by the thirteen States to ratify it. I am regarded as the oldest written and codified constitution in force of the world.
