Chelsea Clinton, the daughter of former President Bill Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, rushed to the defense of counselor to President Donald Trump, Kellyanne Conway on Twitter after Democratic Representative and Chairman of the Congressional Black Caucus Cedric Richmond, stated on Wednesday that a photo of Conway kneeling on couch in the Oval Office made her appear "kind of familiar there in that position," as reported by The Huffington Post.

In her tweet, Clinton stated that Conway "deserves" an apology, called the statement "despicable," and stated that she means "every word." Kellyanne Conway responded that "as strong women" and, "as moms to Charlottes," she appreciated Chelsea Clinton speaking out.

Both Conway and Clinton have daughters named Charlotte.

Clinton, Conway moment a 'rare' one

CNN described the Clinton, Conway moment as a "rare" one, where the two shared "common ground." Richmond was reported to have made the remark at a congressional dinner held by the Washington Press Club, on Wednesday. The congressional leader released a statement clarifying his remark, explaining that "looking or acting ‘familiar’ simply means" that someone, in this case Kellyanne Conway, is "behaving too comfortably."

Conway reportedly reacted to Cedric Richmond's statement by noting that he had not offered an "apology," but had only "tried to clarify." Also at the Washington Press Club dinner, U.S.

Senator from North Carolina Tim Scott performed a comedy routine that was said to refer to the photo of Conway in the Oval Office, Clinton's father Bill, and Monica Lewinsky, saying "a whole lot worse" had occurred on the couch Conway was pictured on.

Previously antagonistic relationship

It has been noted that Chelsea Clinton has previously held Kellyanne Conway to account for comments she made with regard to a "massacre" in Bowling Green, Kentucky that never actually occurred.

At the time, Conway responded that Clinton couldn't "invent" candidates capable of winning an election, and stated "I misspoke; you lost the election."

Conway also made light of the "Bosnia lie," referring to a 2008 statement made by Clinton's mother, the former first lady and secretary of state, that she landed in Bosnia "under heavy fire" that has been widely discredited, as reported by the Washington Post.
