Press Secretary Sean Spicer confronted at an Apple Store in viral video

“How does it feel to work for a fascist?”

That was the first question Shree Chauhan, 33, asked White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer when she confronted him at an Apple store on Saturday night, and the hardballs kept coming. Chauhan asked about the Russia connection and whether he played a part.

“Are you a criminal as well? Have you committed treason, too?” she asked in a calm voice, while recording a video to Periscope that would immediately go viral.

“We live in a great country,” Spicer, wearing an awkward smile, told Chauhan.

“It’s such a great country that allows you to be here,” Spicer continued.

“So I watched the video over and over again. And his words were clear: ‘Such a great country that allows you to be here.’ That is racism and it is an implied threat,” Chauhan, who is Indian-American, wrote on a post on the website Medium, titled “Such a Great Country, Such Nasty Bigotry.”

“When I confronted Mr. Spicer, I wanted to speak truth to power. It wasn’t until hours later that it was revealed to me that Mr. Spicer had said, ‘such a great country that allows you to be here,’ to me,” she wrote.

“Very early on, I knew that Donald J. Trump was dangerous for America and had fascist tendencies. His views on people of color, immigrants and Muslims are abhorrent. His actions against women are despicable. His willful disregard for our Constitutional rights is well, fascist,” she said.
