An Indian-American woman confronted White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer at an Apple store over the weekend, asking if he is a criminal and telling him that he “works for a fascist.” She recorded the entire interaction.
Spicer visibly kept his cool, although clearly annoyed. The woman, Shree, took to Medium on Sunday to explain her behavior.
“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 wrote. “I was devastated by the election but I have channeled my anxiety, sadness, and anger into action.”
Spicer told Shree that it’s “such a great country that allows you to be here.” Spicer’s comment can be interpreted as a reference to Shree being allowed to approach him in such a manner in a public place. However, Shree saw things differently.
