With Hillary going low-key (likely in preparation for some ill-advised new foray into the political arena) daughter Chelsea Clinton has become much more visible of late.
So it was little surprise when she engaged with President Trump’s top adviser, Kellyanne Conway, on Twitter. But the outcome of that exchange was most surprising.
The whole thing started when Congressman Cedric Richmond (D-LA) made crude remarks about Conway casually sitting on the Oval Office couches.
“You even mentioned Kellyanne and the picture on the sofa. But I really just want to know what was going on there, because, I won’t tell anybody. And you can just explain to me that — that circumstance, because she really looked kind of familiar there in that position there.”
A photo of Conway sitting on her knees on the Oval Office couches while taking photos and texting quickly created a media buzz.
But Chelsea Clinton thinks Rep. Richmond went WAY too far.

Despite their political difference, Conway was quick to thank Chelsea for her support.
