A woman questioned White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer on Saturday in an Apple Store, asking him what is was like working for a “fascist.”
Shree Chauhan posted a video of the encounter on social media over the weekend. In the video she is heard asking Sean Spicer if he “helped with the Russia stuff.”
Spicer responded to Chauhan by saying “we have a great country.”
The viral Periscope video showed the woman asking how Spicer felt “about destroying our country.”

Chauhan was in the store to get her iPhone fixed when she spotted the press secretary.
“I realized what an enormous opportunity it was to get answers without the protections normally given to Mr. Spicer,” Chauhan said in a post on Medium.
The woman in the video continued to ask Spicer if he was a “criminal” and if he had “committed treason too, just like the president.”
Spicer said in the video that the United States is “such a great country that allows you to be here.”
“That is racism and it is an implied threat,” Chauhan said in the post in response to his comment. The woman went on to say, “I was not polite. But when does being impolite mean that I should be thrown out of the United States of America?”
Spicer finished his transaction and was leaving the store while Chauhan asked if he felt “good about lying to the American people.”
“We can win if we resist together for liberty, justice and equality. This is our shared America,” Chauhan said in her post.
