‘I just don’t know …’ Pelosi won’t condemn fellow Dem’s crude Kellyanne sex joke, but it reminds her …

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi seemed at a loss for words Sunday when she was confronted with a crude sexual remark made by a colleague last week.

In fact, the California Democrat was unable to either condemn or apologize for a statement made by Rep. Cedric Richmond about presidential counselor Kellyanne Conway, suggesting that she “looked kind of familiar in that position” on her knees.

The Louisiana Democrat made his lewd remark Wednesday at the Washington Press Club Foundation Dinner in reference to a photo taken of her kneeling on a couch in the Oval Office.

But apparently, that was all fine and dandy when she appeared on CNN’s “State of the Union.”

“Leader Pelosi, the joke was sexist, it was disgusting. Shouldn’t the congressman apologize to Kellyanne Conway? And, honestly, where is the Democratic Party in expressing outrage about this?” Tapper asked after playing a short clip of Richmond.

“I wasn’t at the dinner. I’m just finding out about this,” Pelosi claimed, dodging the question.

Then she turned it around to President Trump.

“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 says about women,” she said.

“You all are criticizing Cedric for something he said in the course of the evening — and he maybe should be criticized for that, I just don’t know the particulars,” she claimed once again of one of the biggest stories to hit Washington in the last week.

“But I do, every day, marvel at the fact that somebody who said the gross and crude things that President Trump said — he wouldn’t even be allowed in a frat house, and he’s in the White House.”

And Richmond is no doubt pleased that Pelosi can ignore “the gross and crude things that” a fellow Democrat says.

Even former first daughter Chelsea Clinton was appalled and called the remark “despicable.”

But not Pelosi. She was more concerned about remarks Trump had made more than a decade earlier.
