When White House reporter Andrew Feinberg posed a question to Kellyanne Conway on Tuesday about the president’s racist tweets against the four congresswomen known as the “Squad,” he found himself taken aback by her response. Feinberg, a reporter for the website BeltwayBreakfast.com, asked the White House counselor which countries President Donald Trump was referring to when he suggested Ayanna Pressley, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar-all U.S. citizens-should “go back” to where they came from. Instead of answering that question, Conway asked him, “What’s your ethnicity?” “Uh... why is that relevant?” Feinberg asked before Conway interrupted him to say, “Because I’m asking you a question.”Kellyanne Conway Calls AOC a Liar for Claim That Migrants Are ‘Drinking Out of Toilets’After Conway shares that her ancestors are from Ireland and Italy, the reporter said, “My ethnicity is not relevant to the question I’m asking you.” Conway still would not answer Feinberg’s question, instead insisting that he question was relevant because Trump said “originally” from-he didn’t-and going on a rant about how “a lot of us are sick and tired in this country of America coming last,” echoing comments she made on Fox News earlier in the day about the “Squad” representing a “dark underbelly in this country.” In that same Fox interview, Conway distanced herself from her husband George Conway, whose latest Washington Post column is headlined: “Trump is a racist president.” Reached for comment, Feinberg told The Daily Beast, “It’s not the first time she’s responded to one of my questions with an irrelevant question, but this time was particularly bizarre.”“I just wanted to get back to what I was asking her about,” he added, “so I was glad she was able to confirm the president’s thinking on the matter.”Read more at The Daily Beast.Got a tip?

Stranger Things debuted on Netflix three years ago this week, and unless you've been living under a rock you're probably aware that it's exploded in popularity in a big way since then. In fact, when respondents to a new survey were asked to list their favorite shows on the streaming platform, it ended up being one of the two most popular choices. Out of everything on the service.The only show that was listed higher on this user ranking of favorites as part of a MoffettNathanson-commissioned poll conducted by HarrisX is Orange Is the New Black, which wound up in the number 1 spot.Just to be clear -- that poll actually found that both Stranger Things and OITNB are actually more popular than some of the licensed shows on Netflix you might have expected to rank at or near the top of the list. Shows like Friends and The Office, both of which are unfortunately rolling off the service soon. Those NBC chestnuts from the golden age of appointment TV, instead, round out the bottom of the list of users' top 10 favorite shows on Netflix, with the HarrisX poll findings including both originals and licensed content.Here's how the poll results actually shake out (and we can already hear some of you groaning in disagreement at some of these entries). We mentioned already that OITNB and Stranger Things are 's 1 and 2. The rest of the top ten favorites, starting with third place, are as follows: * For the number three slot, users just said "movies" in general * Ozark * Grace and Frankie * Black Mirror * Lucifer * The Crown * The Office * FriendsThere's also a huge caveat it's important to point out here by way of putting these admissions of favorites into context. They're just that -- admissions. They're not the same thing and don't match up to time spent actually watching content. Part of the reason why that's the case is the apples-to-oranges nature of these comparisons. You can say Stranger Things is your favorite thing to watch on Netflix. But there's a lot more of Friends to actually watch, for example, since it has 236 episodes compared to Stranger Things, which has 25 through the first three seasons.That's why Netflix analyses defy being put into simple, easy buckets. People often only look at one piece of the picture, instead of the whole -- though they're all certainly important. It's important to know these user preferences above, for example, just as it's important to know that Nielsen's SVOD Content Ratings, per a Variety report, actually ranked The Office as the number 1 show on Netflix for 2018 on the basis of minutes streamed. That's followed by Friends, Grey's Anatomy and NCIS. (Presumably, you see the pattern there -- those shows obviously crush it on the basis of time spent viewing them because there's a ton of episodes of all of them to, you know, view on Netflix).While much has been made about the imminent departures of Friends (which is leaving Netflix next year) and The Office (leaving in 2021), these poll results include what's arguably a silver lining. The poll includes mentions of 99 Netflix shows, and a whopping 51 of the favorites were Netflix originals. Users picked 42 licensed shows as their favorites. Again, you'd expect that, since licensed shows seem to be rolling off of Netflix with greater frequency -- but at least users aren't too clingy about the licensed shows that remain.
