Democratic Rep. Cedric Richmond (La.) made a crude joke about White House senior adviser Kellyanne Conway on Wednesday night during the Washington Press Club Foundation dinner.

Richmond joked that Conway looked "familiar" in a position on her knees, referencing a viral photo of Conway kneeling on a couch in the Oval Office, the Daily Caller reported.

"You even mentioned Kellyanne and that picture on that sofa," Richmond said during his speech to Republican Sen. Tim Scott (S.C.). "I really want to know what was going on there because she really looked kind of familiar in that position there, but don't answer."

Richmond was later asked about the joke by the Independent Journal Review's Benny Johnson.

The Louisiana lawmaker's office did not return the Daily Caller‘s request for comment.

This is not the first time Conway has been the subject of a controversial joke. Earlier this month, Saturday Night Live did a skit that depicted Conway being obsessed with CNN anchor Jake Tapper. The skit was a parody of the movie Fatal Attraction. Kate McKinnon, who depicted Conway, became increasingly erratic and sniffed Tapper's tie because "it smells like the news." The skit was met with mixed reviews, with some charging that it was sexist.
