On the list of things not to say about any woman — let alone one of the most powerful women in Washington right now — well, this tops it.
At Wednesday's annual Washington Press Club Foundation congressional dinner — a fundraiser for journalism scholarships and a lighthearted gathering of Washington's media and congressional elite — Rep. Cedric Richmond (D-La.) made a cringe-worthy joke about that now-famous photo of Kellyanne Conway kneeling on the Oval Office sofa.
Here's what he said (my emphasis to Richmond's remarks added in bold):
You even mentioned Kellyanne and the picture on the sofa. But I really just want to know what was going on there, because, I won't tell anybody. And you can just explain to me that — that circumstance, because she really looked kind of familiar there in that position there. But don't answer. And I don't want you to refer back to the ’90s.
