House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi flat-out refused to condemn fellow Congressman Cedric Richmond over his joke on how ‘familiar’ Trump advisor Kellyanne Conway appeared ‘on her knees’.
His remarks were met with a bipartisan firestorm from politicians, pundits, and Conway herself. Pelosi, however, was less concerned. Speaking with CNN’s Jake Tapper, Pelosi declined to criticize the liberal Rep., attempting to deflect -of course- back to President Trump.
“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," Pelosi said. "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."
The joke was so roundly criticized that even Hillary's daughter, Chelsea Clinton came to Conway’s defense.
Nancy Pelosi, who made history in 2007 as the first woman elected Speaker of the House, should be ashamed of herself and her party.
