White House press secretary and part-time Melissa McCarthy impersonator Sean Spicer’s trip to the Apple store this weekend was a complete disaster. And it had nothing to do with iPhones.

While purchasing what appears to be an Apple Watch Sport, Spicer got confronted by an Indian-American woman who asked him, “You know you work for a fascist, right?”

The entire confrontation got caught on video as Spicer tried to smile his way through the questions before telling the woman the United States is “such a great country that allows you to be here.”

In an interview with the Daily Mail, Shree Chauhan says she has no regrets about harassing President Donald Trump’s spokesman, even though her Twitter has blown up with hateful comments.

Chauhan, who was born in America and is of Indian descent, called Spicer’s comment racist. Others have claimed Spicer meant that America is a great country for allowing her to be in the Apple store expressing her dissent.

“He could’ve said, ‘Such a great country that allows dissent,'” Chauhan said. “There’s a lot of ways that could’ve been said. To have someone who speaks for the president of the United States tell me to my face that I shouldn’t be here and I was born here — that is a real thing.”

Apple did not respond to requests for comment. Some Americans have told Chauhan that it was disrespectful for her to confront Spicer while he was out shopping as a private citizen.

“Is it appropriate to ban Muslims from this country?” she replied.
