Jul 16 - Kellyanne Conway loses it and demands to know a reporter’s ‘ethnicity’

As President Donald Trump is still being hammered under the firestorm he started with his racist attacks on Democratic lawmakers, Kellyanne Conway dug the White House in even deeper on Tuesday in a combative exchange with a reporter.

Speaking in the White House driveway, reporter Andrew Feinberg of Breakfast Media asked Conway what the president was referring to when he said that progressive lawmakers — three out of four of whom were born in the United States — should “go back” to their countries.


In response, Conway demanded to know the reporter’s ethnicity.

“What’s your ethnicity?” she said.

“Why is that relevant?” Feinberg responded, taken aback.



“No, no — because I’m asking a question,” she said, doubling down on her shocking question. “My ancestors are from Ireland and Italy.”

“My own ethnicity is not relevant to the question I’m asking,” said Feinberg.

“No, it is,” Conway said, digging her heels in on her outrageous demand. “Because you’re asking about — he said ‘originally.’ He said ‘originally from.'”

She seemed to be implying that it was reasonable for the president to tell Democratic congresswoman — all of whom are people of color — to go back to the countries of their ancestors. Conway’s claim, though, that this is somehow implied in the phrase “originally from” is just wrong. She is not “originally from” Ireland or Italy if she wasn’t born there and never lived there. And even if she had been born elsewhere, it would still be wildly inappropriate to tell her that as an American citizen that she should now go back. And of course, the fact that the president made his claims originally about women of color, implying they don’t really belong in the United States, is a demonstration of outright racist bigotry.

Conway’s demand to know a reporter’s ethnicity just because he is asking a question about the president’s remarks is likewise wildly inappropriate. If her point was to demonstrate that most or many Americans can trace their heritage to another country as a defense of Trump’s wildly racist attack, she’s layering an offensive demand on top of a desperate defense of the president’s bigotry.

Feinberg also noted:


After Feinberg repeatedly made clear that her question was inappropriate, Conway seemed to realize that she may have crossed a line and overcompensated by lashing out.

“A lot of us are sick and tired in this country of America coming last to people who swore an oath of office!” she said. “Sick and tired of our military being denigrated. Sick and tired of the Customs and Border Protection people I was with — who were overwhelmingly Hispanic, by the way, in McAllen, Texas — sick and tired of them — no, you don’t understand, ’cause you didn’t go! — being criticized. Being doxxed! By a bunch of Hollywood D-listers who have nothing else to do but sit on their a*ses on Twitter all day and try to dox brave men and women who are diving into the Rio Grande to save people who are drowning. Who are taking other people’s babies into custody! And diapering them and feeding them.”

At that, Conway had clearly lost all perspective, demanding that CBP be thanked for taking away babies from parents and separating families.

I wonder what those conversations with her husband are like




"No, I thought, President Trump was boorish, dim-witted, inarticulate, incoherent, narcissistic and insensitive. He’s a pathetic bully but an equal-opportunity bully – in his uniquely crass and crude manner, he’ll attack anyone he thinks is critical of him. No matter how much I found him ultimately unfit, I still gave him the benefit of the doubt about being a racist," George Conway said.

"But Sunday left no doubt. Naivete, resentment and outright racism, roiled in a toxic mix, have given us a racist president."

He said Trump's comments about Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts and Rashida Tlaib of Michigan were "racist to the core."

She hates America. She should go back to Ireland

If the GOP loves the CBP so much why dont they give them raises? Why dont they improve their terrible benefits package? Theyre over working them for low pay without the opportunity to see any raises....just like the foreigners Republicans love to hire in the south

I stopped reading at "his racist attacks on Democratic lawmakers". More liberal bullsh*t.

If she did say something fu*ked up, then shame on her. If she didn't, I'm not surprised by people saying she did.

Everything is racist to you professional victims.

BUT AGAIN! Shame on her if she did say something fu*ked up.

I've seen some conservatives stress the need to have immigrants and other groups a*similate to "American culture". How does a mentality like this prove to be conducive to that idea? Do y'all really believe capitalism, more racism, and the subsequent exploitation of the have nots will hold off china from taking the top spot on the global stage?

It's hard to believe a lot of yall are thinking that deep into the implications of what mentalityTrump and the ruling elite are propogating in the media. It just seems like y'all just go with whatever is being done or said.

you know what the definition of privilege is?


Is that you and others like you feel like you should be the arbiter of what is offensive to others.

I get the disconnect because nothing offends you except being called a racist.... thats irony

Not sure if he's a liberal or not but many white liberals don't mind befriending racists, supporting racists, sleeping with, or even marrying racists. Dr. King been tried and told y'all. While they may not vote for Klan adjacent politicians like Trump they ultimately prize their social comforts over our lives and human rights. And Martin Luther King JR. was calling that out in the 60s.
