WH Press Secretary Sean Spicer went to an Apple store Saturday night to get a new charger but was ambushed by an irate Liberal with accusations of ‘treason’ and ‘racism’
Shree Chauhan – a 33-year-old Indian-American woman who lives in Washington, DC, and works for a non-profit – posted the video in which she walks up to Spicer and begins harassing him as he shops.
She opens her ambush with,
‘How does it feel to work for a fascist?’
‘We have a great country’ while appearing to try and ignore the woman.
‘We have a great country? Have you helped with the Russia stuff? Are you a criminal as well?’
‘Have you committed treason too? Just like the president. Have you committed treason too? What can you tell me about Russia?’
Many would reacted angrily to having a phone thrust into their face but Spicer just smiled politely during the encounter and replied ,
‘It’s such a great country that allows you to be here’
He then walked away
Chauhan, who is of Indian descent and was born in America, claims this was a racist.
She told DailyMail.com that she felt as if Spicer was suggesting that she had no right to be in the US.
However, it’s possible Spicer was referring to the right of all Americans to exercise free speech – even if they are confronting one of the most powerful people in the country while he shops.
‘He’s the press secretary for the president of the United States,’ she said.
‘Don’t tell me what he probably meant because he also works for this administration that has done all of these things.’
Chauhan was referring to Trump’s executive order in which he banned migrants and asylum seekers from six Muslim-majority countries in the Middle East and Africa.
‘He could’ve said, “Such a great country that allows dissent,” she said. ‘There’s a lot of ways that could’ve been said.’
‘To have someone who speaks for the president of the United States tell me to my face that I shouldn’t be here and I was born here – that is a real thing.’
Chauhan – who works for Parents in Partnership, a nonprofit that encourages parents to take a greater role in their children’s education – said that Trump’s election made her fear for her safety as well as for her future in the US, even though she is a citizen.
‘I woke up the day after the election in fear of what would happen to someone like me. And we’ve seen what happened.’
‘We’ve seen what happened to Indians.’
