One Washington D.C. man pulled a bit of a prank on Kellyanne Conway, senior adviser to President Donald Trump, and he's got it all on video.
Alfredo Joseph Pelicci, a 28-year-old lawyer, was at a Lupo Verde, an Italian restaurant in the nation's capital, earlier this week when he approached Conway and her bodyguard who were also there.
“I walked right up to her and asked her for a selfie,” he told Buzzfeed News Saturday.
In an eight-second video he uploaded on Facebook, Pelicci asks Conway to say, "I'm ruining America!" instead of, "cheese."
Conway, who grew up in Atco, Camden County, then says, "Happy? You must feel really brave saying that."
The video has since been viewed more than 200,000 times. Pelicci told Buzzfeed that he was surprised to see just how many people his short video reached.
“This administration is threatening the safety of transgender students, is actively targeting religious minorities, and is tearing apart families that have been in this country for nearly their whole lives,” Pelicci told the news organization. “They should feel the shame of those actions everywhere they go — and they definitely will in the very blue Washington, D.C."
