Elaine Chao is Trump’s Transportation Secretary. She is also Asian and is married to Senator Mitch McConnell. During a recent radio interview, she was harassed by a male reporter for supporting Trump, even though she is a woman of color.

Reporter Badgers ‘Woman Of Color’ Elaine Chao About ‘Nazi Support For President Trump’ [AUDIO]
A male reporter repeatedly badgered Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao Tuesday night during a press conference about infrastructure.
But he didn’t badger her about her infrastructure plans — he badgered her about her skin color, which the reporter tried to tie to this past weekend’s violence between far-left antifa activists and far-right alt-right members.
Secretary Chao, who is married to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, spoke briefly following a Trump press conference on infrastructure Tuesday where reporters focused almost entirely on his reaction to violence at a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville.
The reporter, whose name is not known, repeatedly pressed the female transportation secretary about her skin color.
“Secretary Chao, as a woman of color,” the reporter began, “what do you think about the Nazi support for President Trump?”
Unbelievable. Listen to the audio below. Skip to the 3:40 mark:
This would never happen to a Democrat. It’s so dishonest.
