Ok, this was odd…
While taking questions from reporters on the White House driveway, White House counselor Kellyanne Conway flipped out a bit over questions regarding Donald Trump’s attacks on four congresswomen of color by asking a reporter about his ethnicity.
Andrew Feinberg, a White House reporter for Breakfast Media, asked Conway, “If the president was not telling these four congresswomen to return to their supposed countries of origin, to which countries was he referring?”
Conway responded asking, “What’s your ethnicity?”
“Why is that relevant?” replied Feinberg.
“Because I’m asking a question,” said Conway. “My ancestors are from Ireland and Italy.”
She then snapped, “A lot of us are sick and tired of this country – of America – coming last, to people who swore an oath of office.”
None of that relates to anything Feinberg was asking. Watch below.

Conway then took to Twitter to say her question was meant “with no disrespect.”
This was meant with no disrespect.
We are all from somewhere else “originally”. I asked the question to answer the question and volunteered my own ethnicity: Italian and Irish.
Like many, I am proud of my ethnicity, love the USA & grateful to God to be an American 🇺🇸 https://t.co/OvBALIO6WP
