Ever since the election of #Donald Trump, the political divide in the United States has only gotten worse. While Trump has received much of the attention, many of his closest advisers have also felt the repercussions.
Within days of Donald Trump's historic upset win over Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, former communications director of the Republican National Committee, #Sean Spicer, was tapped to become the new White House Press Secretary. With the former host of "The Apprentice" increasing his war of words with the media, while simultaneously dealing with the growing scandal of alleged Russian interference in the election, Spicer has been forced to deal with the press head on. Whether it's his dealings in front of the camera, or reports of a behind the scenes clash with Presidential Counsel Kellyanne Conway, Spicer has been in the headlines over the last two months. As reported by the Washington Examiner on March 12, Spicer was confronted by an angry voter during a trip to the #Apple Store over the weekend.
"How does it feel to work for a fascist? Have you helped with the Russia stuff?," a woman asked while filming Sean Spicer who was shopping at Apple. "Are you a criminal as well? Have you committed treason too, just like the president?" she continued, who goes by the name of "Shree" on Twitter. In response, Spicer smiled and added, "Such a great country that allows you to be here."
"What can you tell me about Russia?" the woman continued, while repeating herself, "what can you tell me?" As Sean Spicer attempted to ignore the woman, Spicer was grilled once again? "How do you feel about destroying our country Sean?" the woman continued, while asking once again, "do you feel good about lying to the American people?" As of press time, the video has been viewed over 80,000 times on Periscope, and has more than 2,000 re-tweets on Twitter.
Sean Spicer's altercation with the angry woman in the Apple store only highlights the wide political divide in the United States. Despite vowing to be the president for all Americans, Donald Trump and his election win has only resulted in even more tension that doesn't appear to be going away anytime soon.
