[3/3/17] Chelsea Clinton said a sexually charged joke directed at White House aide Kellyanne Conway by Democratic Rep. Cedric Richmond was “despicable,” and called on Richmond to apologize to Conway.
Referring to a picture of Conway kneeling on a couch in the Oval Office, Richmond said she looked “familiar” with being on her knees, a comment that she described as sexist.
“Despicable,” Chelsea wrote on Twitter. “I hope [Conway] receives the apology she deserves.” She couldn’t help adding in a bit of snark, however, adding that she “certainly never thought I’d write that” but that “I mean every word.”
Richmond claimed the joke wasn’t meant to have sexual connotations.
