Trump aide Kellyanne Conway asks reporter ‘what’s your ethnicity?’

1416938_web1_1162226267

The conflagration began on Sunday, when, as Common Dreams reported, Trump jumped into an ongoing feud between House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Reps. "He's exhausted. A lot of us are sick and exhausted of this country -- of America coming last... to people who swore an oath of office". Last month, Cummings wrote a pair of scathing letters to Attorney General William Barr and Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross over their refusal to honor subpoenas regarding the failed attempt tot add a citizenship question to the 2020 U.S. Census. Omar immigrated from Somalia.

Rep. Omar, a Somali refugee, moved to the United States when she was 12 and is a naturalized citizen; Ocasio-Cortez, who is of Latin American descent, was born in NY; and Pressley, who is African American, was born in Cincinnati. The other three are fellow Reps. He said in an August tweet he was ousted for refusing to report on the Seth Rich conspiracy story at White House press conferences. "I know his heart, I know his actions, I know how much he has helped people of color and I go by what people do, not by what other people say about them", she argued, downplaying the difference of opinion with her spouse. "All I'm saying is if they want to leave, they can leave now".

"The President's already commented on that and he's said a lot about it since that one tweet".

"Feinberg, a reporter for the website BeltwayBreakfast.com, asked the White House counselor which countries President Donald Trump was referring to when he suggested Ayanna Pressley, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar-all USA citizens-should "go back" to where they came from".

Video of the exchange captured what happened next. Conway responded with: "What's your ethnicity?".

Later in the CNN interview, Feinberg told Lemon that he was still confused by Conway's question, saying, "I have no earthly clue what her question or the answer I could have given to that question, had to do with what the president said or to what country she was referring". "My ancestors are from Ireland and Italy", Conway said.

After a brief pause, Feinberg asked why that was relevant to his question. "We are not requiring her to testify about advice she gave the president or about the White House's policy decisions", Cummings said before adjourning Monday's hearing.

"No, it is, because he said 'originally from.' And you know everything he has said since". And then use some common sense about what Conway was getting at. Advocates and lawmakers have described in wrenching terms how adults and children are held, sometimes for weeks, in dirty and sickly conditions as their immigration cases are pending.

Before adjourning the hearings on Monday, Cummings made it clear that he would not accept the Trump administration's arguments, threatening to hold Conway in contempt of Congress. "A lot of us are sick and exhausted of this country, of America, coming last to people who swore an oath of office". What the president is doing is we are exhausted, sick and exhausted of many people in this country forget these four.

Conway said Democrats are "trying to harass and embarrass people closest to the president", claiming there is a "longstanding bipartisan precedent" that immunity can be claimed by a president's senior advisers.

Conway described the CBP officials as "brave men and women" doing their best.
