By asking about my ethnicity (a mix of 🇵🇱 🇱🇹 🇷🇺 and 🇱🇻, I’m told) in response to my question, @KellyannePolls inadvertently confirmed that @realDonaldTrump was telling @IlhanMN, @RashidaTlaib, @AOC, @AyannaPressley to return to Somalia, Gaza, Puerto Rico, and somewhere in Africa. https://t.co/0egLbFXILk

What is happening?
Is this real life?
White House counselor Kellyanne Conway on Tuesday responded to questions about President Donald Trump’s attacks on four congresswomen of color by asking a reporter about his heritage.
Andrew Feinberg, a White House reporter for Breakfast Media, a website about politics and technology, 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 paused and then asked him, “What’s your ethnicity?”
“Why is that relevant?” Feinberg replied.
“Because I’m asking a question. My ancestors are from Ireland and Italy,” Conway shot back.
The exchange took place with members of the media on the White House driveway Tuesday morning, when, following an appearance on Fox News, Conway was repeatedly asked what Trump meant when he tweeted earlier this week that a quartet of progressive congresswomen should “go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came.”
Hours later, Feinberg — who is Jewish — responding to a question on Twitter, said he didn’t think Conway was being anti-Semitic.
There is zero chance that Kellyanne doesn’t know what “Andrew Feinberg’s” ethnicity is.
Even if she didn’t know who he was somehow – and there is really no chance of that, they know all the reporters with White House credentials – just look at his face.
You don’t have to have an ultra-sonic Jewdar to place that face.
Are we really hitting the gas that hard now?
That the president’s people are calling out Jewish reporters as kikes?
This is truly almost too glorious to even be real.
I can’t believe what I just witnessed here.
The fact that she followed it up with “because my ancestors are from Ireland and Italy” makes it almost impossible to believe she was not saying “I’m a White European, who the hell are you to come in my country and question me, you ratfaced Levantine weasel?”
How is it even possible that this is real life?
Maybe Donald Trump has somehow taken control of the FBI and ordered them to raid Jeffrey Epstein’s mansion and now he has all the blackmail tapes and he’s just going to go nuts?
No, I doubt that’s the case, this was clearly just some sort of… accident? I guess?
Even if it looks like the opening shot of an anti-Semitic campaign, it probably is not.
Apparently, this is not a point that the Jews want to make a thing of, because the Jew went on CNN after the thing and stressed that he didn’t think it was anti-Semitic. This is a weird, bug-eyed, twitchy Jew, let me tell you that.
Clearly, they don’t want to start a discussion about Jewish reporters hating America and flooding it with brown people. That’s the only reason they would skip a chance to accuse someone of being anti-Semitic.
