KellyAnne Conway demands to know Jewish reporter’s ethnicity


White House counselor Kellyanne Conway went as far as to grill a Jewish reporter about his own racial background while defending racist tweets and statements President Donald Trump made about four Democratic women of color.

“What’s your ethnicity?” Conway asked Breakfast Media White House reporter Andrew Feinberg, after he asked her during a media availability outside the White House, “if the president was not telling these four congresswomen to return to their supposed countries of origin, to which countries was he referring?” Feinberg’s question pertained to statements Conway made earlier during the press gaggle in which she suggested the media was misinterpreting Trump’s comments by imputing a racial meaning to them.

Feinberg responded to Conway’s question by asking, “Why is that relevant?” Conway, without prompting, disclosed that her “ancestors are from Ireland and Italy.”

“He said originally,” Conway added, referring to Trump’s statements. “He said ‘originally from.’”

Commenter MIJ:

Trump is despicable – period. Anyone who supports Trump is despicable – period.

Nothing more really needs to be said (but feel free anyway).
