Kellyanne Conway: White House advisor ‘assaulted in restaurant’ – BBC News

She said she called 911, but by the time the police arrived at the Mexican restaurant in Bethesda, Maryland, the woman had already left.
Her teenage daughter had been able to film part of what happened, Ms Conway added.
Ms Inabinett’s lawyer, William Alden McDaniel Jr, said in a statement that his client “did not assault Ms Conway”, but rather had “exercised her First Amendment right to express her personal opinions”.
He added that she intends to plead not guilty.
The alleged incident follows two earlier confrontations involving Trump administration officials in restaurants last year.
On 19 June, Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen was heckled by activists while eating out in Washington DC.
They asked her if she could “hear the babies crying”, referring to a scandal involving children being separated from their parents at the US’s southern border with Mexico.
And just a few days later, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders was asked to leave a Red Hen restaurant in Lexington, Virginia – also in protest over the treatment of migrants at the border. Related Topics

Laura Ingraham Suggests ‘Hamilton’ Black Actors Culturally Misappropriate

MEDIA 02/08/2019 09:24 am ET Updated 1 day ago Laura Ingraham Suggests ‘Hamilton’ Black Actors Culturally Misappropriate Blackface scandals led the Fox News host into a controversial detour about actors of color playing white historical figures. By Ron Dicker 8.1k Fox News host Laura Ingraham weighed in on blackface controversies with the suggestion that Broadway hit “ Hamilton ” culturally misappropriates because black actors play white historical figures.
The original cast of Lin-Manuel Miranda ’s rapping musical included Leslie Odom, Jr., and Christopher Jackson, both black, as Aaron Burr and George Washington.
“Is that not culturally appropriating the other race?” Ingraham asked Thursday on PodcastOne’s “The Laura Ingraham Show Podcast.” (See the clip below.) “If it’s just about cultural appropriation, does it only go one way? That’s interesting, I didn’t think about that ‘Hamilton’ thing until just now, I love ‘Hamilton.’ See, I think it’s fine, I think it’s all cool. Switch it up.”
Ingraham was defending “The View” co-host Joy Behar after a photo of her portraying an African woman in blackface for Halloween resurfaced. That followed revelations of blackface photos involving the Virginia governor and other top state officials that have embroiled the state’s leadership in scandal.
While saying Behar was not a racist, Ingraham lamented in the clip posted by Media Matters that “now we can’t even celebrate someone in costume.”
Ingraham’s co-host, conservative author Raymond Arroyo, then pointed out Laurence Olivier’s blackface performance in the 1965 film “Othello.”
“They wouldn’t be able to do that today,” Ingraham responded. “They would say you would have to have an African American doing it. But what about when they did ‘Hamilton’ and they made white people black people?”
