Kellyanne Conway probably didn’t expect a Clinton to come to her defense.
Neither, it seems, did Chelsea Clinton.
The former first daughter slammed a Democrat congressman’s “despicable” joke about Conway, saying the White House counselor deserved an apology.
Rep. Cedric Richmond of Louisiana joked at a dinner Wednesday about how “familiar” Conway looked in photo of her with her feet up on a couch in the Oval Office.
Many saw his comments as offensive and crude, including Clinton who tweeted that Richmond should apologize.
Despicable. I hope @KellyannePolls receives the apology she deserves-certainly never thought I’d write that & I mean every word. https://t.co/NmvFwNL21d

Conway did not miss the message and thanked Clinton, a fellow “strong” woman.
Thank you, @ChelseaClinton. As strong women, as moms to Charlottes…appreciate you speaking out on this. https://t.co/rxBnXq553t

Conway had defended herself after the photo went viral and caused liberals to have a meltdown because her feet were on the couch. She blamed the hysteria of what was jokingly called “sofa-gate” on a journalist who was unhappy with President Trump.
Richmond’s crude remarks were slammed by many including Conway herself who blasted the congressman for “demeaning” women.
Clinton may have surprised herself with her tweet, but she wasn’t alone as many on Twitter reacted to the surprising moment of “common ground” between the women.
