Chelsea Clinton Just Came to Kellyanne Conway’s Defense on Twitter

No matter your political views, we can all agree that misogyny isn’t okay – and Chelsea Clinton just proved this point in the best way possible.

ICYMI, the Internet went into freakout mode on Tuesday night when a photo surfaced of Kellyanne Conway kneeling casually on the Oval Office couch, shoes and all. While the resulting memes were fire, not all of the jokes that followed were funny. Case in point: when Rep. Cedric Richmond of Louisiana made a joke that Conway, “looked kind of familiar in that position there.”

Many took the joke to be sexual – Chelsea Clinton was among those who felt it went way too far and tweeted support for Conway.

Conway was quick to respond, thanking Clinton for speaking out:

While the two have had past Twitter beef after Clinton called out Conway for making up the now-infamous “Bowling Green Massacre,” their tweets are proof of the power of women coming together to take a stand against sexism, despite their very obvious political differences.
