Sean Spicer, the White House Press Secretary, was questioned by a customer at the Apple Store on Saturday.
The woman, Shree Chauhan, uploaded evidence to her social media accounts of the encounter. "Asking Sean Spicer questions in Apple Store since he doesn't like the press," Chauhan tweets.
The Indian-American 33-year-old is not seen on camera, but she is heard asking the following questions in the video:
"How does it feel to work for a fascist?"
"You know you work for a fascist, right? How do you feel about that?"
"What can you tell me about Russia?"
"Have you helped with the Russian stuff?"
"Are you a criminal, as well?"
"Have you committed treason, too?"
"How do you feel about destroying our country, Sean?"
"Do you feel good about the decisions you're making?"
"Do you feel good about lying to the American people?"
"What can you tell me?"
Watch the video below:
Spicer looks like he is a mix between annoyed and anxious. He does not answer any of Chauhan's questions, but he does retaliate with a typical response. "We have a great country; it's such a great country that allows you to be here," he squeaks.
While the woman is a natural born citizen, she feels like Spicer is insulting her citizenship. His words could be easily misconstrued for a racist remark. However, like Daily Mail asserts, the man probably means she is lucky to live in a country with rights like freedom of speech.
Then again, Spicer can be offensive without even trying, so who knows?
Even though Chauhan gets only a few words from Spicer, her video is important. The clip shows just how reluctant Spicer is to answer questions; he could just reply with a simple "Yes," No," or "Leave me alone."
News outlets are going crazy with the footage, but there is only one thing running through my mind.
He needs some gum.
