A woman accosted White House press secretary Sean Spicer while he was shopping in Washington, D.C. over the weekend to ask him: “How does it feel to work for a fascist?”
“How does it feel to work for a fascist? How does it feel?” Shree Chauhan, who identified herself as the person who filmed the encounter, asked Spicer while he shopped in an Apple store.
“We have a great country,” he replied.
“You have a great country? Have you helped with the Russia stuff?” she asked. “Are you a criminal as well? Have you committed treason, too, just like the President?”
“Thank you. Thank you very much,” Spicer said. “Such a great country that allows you to be here.”
“You know you work for a fascist, right? You work for a fascist. How do you feel about that? How do you feel about destroying our country?” Chauhan asked. “Do you feel good about the decisions you’re making? About lying to the American people? Do you feel good about lying to the American people?”

Spicer tried to ignore Chauhan as she followed him around the store, according to a report by the Washington Examiner.
In a Medium post, Chauhan said she saw Spicer shopping and “realized what an enormous opportunity it was to get answers without the protections normally given to Mr. Spicer.”
“I was honestly quite nervous and wanted to come up with more cogent questions but did not have time to do so,” she wrote. “When I confronted Mr. Spicer, I wanted to speak truth to power.”
