In front of the entire congressional press corps last night, Rep. Cedric Richmond of Louisiana, insinuated that Kellyanne Conway, a married mother of four and counselor to President Trump, was a prostitute.
It was good old-fashioned locker room talk with just one exception — Richmond isn't a Republican. He sits on the left side of the aisle and, perhaps as a result, there hasn't been any censure from Democrat leadership and little condemnation in the press.
Referring to a picture of the White House counselor sitting on her knees on a couch in the Oval Office, the Democrat quipped that Conway "really looked kind of familiar in that position there." The joke was met mostly with crickets. To their credit, some of the politicians and pundits attending the rubber chicken dinner offered up a few boos. But that was it.
