By Katie Berohn2019-07-1621: 14: 37 UTC Kellyanne Conway seems to believe it's OK-- and even pertinent-- to ask what somebody's ethnicity is throughout a press conference. It's not. Today, press reporter Andrew Feinberg asked Conway to clarify what President Trump implied by a series of racist tweets intended at 4 congresswomen today. In reaction, Conway asked, "What's your ethnicity?" When Feinberg asked why this was pertinent, Conway told him that her forefathers are from Ireland and Italy. Feinberg responded that "My ethnic background is not pertinent to the question I'm asking you." " He's worn out," Conway said. "A great deal of us are sick and worn out in this nation of America coming last."…

Conservatives are conditioning us to accept the breakup of Britain

Education
British Conservatives are openly discussing whether Brexit will lead to the breakup of the country currently known as the United Kingdom.

But within those numbers were a large majority of Scots and Northern Irish who voted to Remain.…
