Rep. Cedric Richmond spoke yesterday at the Washington Press Club Foundation dinner. His attempt at a comedy routine wound up being an example of what not to do. Few of his remarks were funny but he really face-planted when he brought up Kellyanne Conway and the picture on the sofa.
I really just want to know what was going on there, Richmond said to Sen. Tim Scott. He continued, You know I wont tell anybody and you can just explain to me that circumstance because she really looked kind of familiar in that position.
Richmond was referring to Couchgate. Thats the outrageous outrage progressives briefly occupied themselves with between flare-ups of Russia fever. Heres the picture he was referencing:
It’s clear this was intended to be part of a comedy routine. But as Dirty Harry once said, “A man’s got to know his limitations” and Rep. Richmond is way beyond his limitations trying to do a stand-up routine. He could have resolved that very easily with a heartfelt apology to Conway. Instead, he made up an explanation that doesn’t pass the smell test. From the Washington Post:
On Thursday, Richmond insisted that there was no such intention behind his remarks. Since some people have interpreted my joke to mean something that it didnt I think it is important to clarify what I meant, he said in a statement. Where I grew up saying that someone is looking or acting familiar simply means that they are behaving too comfortably.
The technical term for that explanation is bulls**t.
Let’s face it, if a Republican congressman had cracked this “joke” about the most powerful Democratic woman in Washington, it would have launched 1,000 feminist memes. Few would have cared it was supposed to be funny, only that a GOP male had turned an accomplished woman into a sex object. If that same GOP representative had then offered a lame excuse instead of an apology the left would be off to the races.
Put another way, if this incident isn’t grounds for a lecture on intersectionality and the glass ceiling then please spare me the next time some GOP backbencher says something equally dumb. The moral posturing from the feminist left really doesn’t deserve much attention until it stops being so selective with its outrage.
For her part, Conway told the Daily Caller, “I notice he did not apologize, he tried to clarify.” She also agreed the gaffe would get more attention if she were liberal and “pro-abortion.”
Here’s the Rep. Richmond’s routine and your final warning that this is a comedy train wreck:
RatRep. Cedric Richmond: Black Congressional Humor
I Call For The Boorish Lout Richmond To Resign Immediately!
Damn.... that is going to cost you...
It is not Democratic Congressman... It is Democrat Congressman. It drives me nuts. They are Democrats not Democratic!!!!!
The proper political move here would be for a Republican congresswoman to introduce a censure resolution for Richmonds words. If this becomes a womens issue, the Democrats have to join in.
A different article stated that the “joke was not well received...” His excuse was so bad it’s going to lead to much further digging.
The usual question of what would have been demanded it’s Republican had engaged in such vulgar behavior? We know.
The rules are always different for essobee Democrats like this and every other one from the bottom to the ruling elite. Disgusting.
If liberals didn’t have double standards, they wouldn’t have any at all.
Wow. Democrats have no class at all. what kind of people send someone like that to represent them?
I would love it if Trump would speak up and call Cedric Richmond a pig.
He is rightfully getting hammered on it too.
You can't live with'em. You can't afford to buy them a round trip ticket on Elon Musk's mega moon rocket.
If he won’t resign then censure him in the Senate.
If I was Kellyanne’s husband I’d find this turd and beat the crap out of him! No one would talk about my wife like that!
Why is it that in that photo, not one single person is looking towards Kellyanne ? Doesn’t that seem unusual ?
In an ideal world, some significant men in her life would pay the congressidiot a visit and rearrange his teeth.
I really think the boor got turned on.
Gangstahs in “Congress”. Somebody needs to pound this boy’s lights for awhile.
Well... Democrats can't tell the difference between Socialism and Democracy, so I doubt they care about Democrat/Democratic nuances.
