New York Times opinion writer and staff editor Bari Weiss thought she was showing up President Trump when she praised US Olympic skater Mirai Nagasu as an "immigrant" succeeding in the Winter Games.
"Immigrants: They get the job done," Weiss tweeted in response to video of Nagasu performing a "historic triple axel" from NBC.
While Nagasu's parents are Japanese immigrants, she was born in California as a US citizen. Rather than be showered with praise for signalling her virtue, Weiss was showered with hate for questioning Nagasu's authentic Americanness.
Is America no longer a "nation of immigrants"?
Are first-generation immigrants no longer "immigrants," but instead pure Americana?
