After Congressman Cedric Richmond had made an inappropriate joke about how “familiar” Kellyanne Conway looks in the viral photo of her kneeling on a couch in the Oval Office, people across the country came to the counselor to the president’s defense by calling the joke lewd and sexist. Joining them is an unexpected ally – Chelsea Clinton.

“Despicable,” she wrote on Twitter. “I hope @KellyannePolls receives the apology she deserves-certainly never thought I’d write that & I mean every word.”

Conway, who was involved in a sassy back-and-forth via Twitter with the former first daughter last month, took the time to thank her fellow mom and “strong” woman, writing back, “Thank you, @ChelseaClinton. As strong women, as moms to Charlottes…appreciate you speaking out on this.”

While Richmond has since attempted to clarify his comment, insisting that he only meant she appeared to be “behaving too comfortably,” it’s clear that women across the country — conservatives and liberals alike — still aren’t buying it.
