House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) appeared on CNN where she was asked about the crude sexual joke a Democratic Senator made about Kellyanne Conway.
Pelosi, who has been a vocal critic of the Trump presidency, claiming everything from racism to sexism, was in no mood to take a similar stand when asked about her own party member, Rep Cedric Richmond (D-La.).
Richmond who last Wednesday during a dinner at the Washington Press Club Foundation said that Conway “really looked kind of familiar in that position,” referring a photo of Conway on her knees on a coach in the Oval Office taking a photo of President Trump and presidents of historically black colleges.
When pressed by Jake Tapper of CNN and confronted over the comments on “State of the Union,” Pelosi just dodged the topic and tried to twist the conversation by referring back to Trump.
“Shouldn’t the congressman apologize to Kellyanne Conway, and honestly where is the Democratic Party in expressing outrage over this?” host Jake Tapper asked.
“Well, I wasn’t at the dinner. I’m just finding out about this. But 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 said about women,” Pelosi said.
Pelosi’s comments are hugely hypocritical given her previous comments, even Chelsea Clinton dismissed the comments by the Democrat as “despicable”.
