Kellyanne Conway could learn a thing or two about respect.

Conway, the top Trump aide infamous for spewing mendacious propaganda and “alternative facts,” made a snide comment to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Wednesday following a tense meeting at the White House.

According to a report from the New York Times’ Kate Rogers, Conway asked House Speaker Nancy Pelosi if she’d like to relay anything to Trump, who had just thrown a temper tantrum and stormed out of what was supposed to be a meeting with congressional Democrats on infrastructure.

“Respectfully, Madame Speaker, do you have a direct response to the president?” Conway asked Pelosi.

Pelosi told Conway that if she had anything to say she’d say it directly to Trump. And that’s where Conway made her rude retort.

“Really great, that’s really pro-woman of you,” Conway said to Pelosi.

But Conway works for Trump, a man who makes sexist and demeaning comments about how women look, admitted to grabbing women “by the pussy,” and has been accused by more than a dozen women of sexual assault. The fact that she would stick around and work for a man who is so clearly sexist is as far from being “pro-woman” as it gets.

And accusing Pelosi, who has been a champion of women’s rights throughout her career, of not being “pro-woman” is about as far from the truth as it gets.

Pelosi has helped advocate for equal pay legislation; pushed for employment equality for women, including pregnant women; and worked to increase the minimum wage, as the vast majority of minimum-wage workers are women.

Not to mention as the only female speaker of the House in U.S. history, Pelosi is the highest-ranking female politician ever.

For Conway, who enables a man who is accused of serial sexual assault, to suggest that Pelosi is anti-woman is truly beyond the pale.

But what more could you expect from a shameless liar like her?
