Kellyanne has responded to the crude sexual remark a Democrat congressman made, and boy did she hit back hard!
In case you missed it, Rep. Richmond said Kellyanne looks “familiar” on her knees while referencing the now infamous photo of Kellyanne sitting on her knees on the White House’s Oval Office couch while Trump met with leaders of historically black colleges and universities.

Conway was asked whether she thinks the mainstream media would have handled the comments differently if she was a liberal. According to The Daily Caller:
“Yes,” Conway said. “And it is not just if I were a liberal woman, but if I were a pro-abortion one.”
Richmond attempted to weasel out of the comment when he spoke to the Caller.
“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 a night of levity. Where I grew up saying that someone is looking or acting ‘familiar’ simply means that they are behaving too comfortably,” he said in a statement.
“I notice he did not apologize, he tried to clarify,” Conway noted.
Nice try, Rep. Richmond, you’re not getting out of this that easily.
Geez, imagine if a conservative made that comment! People would not only demand that he step down, but that he do some charity event for women’s month or something…
