Stopped by police for weaving on the roads, she got away with showing them a “white concession card,” according to her social media posts.
Police in Alaska stopped the woman, who was in town at a rally for former President Donald Trump last month, and asked her to show her license and registration.
Instead of obtaining a license, the woman, who was identified as an Israeli Mimi, pulled out a “white privilege card”.
The video, retweeted on Twitter, shows her asking Anchorage Police Department officers if they like her card.
“That’s funny,” someone said in the video.

“He asked for my driver’s license. I looked in my wallet but couldn’t find it,” she wrote in the original post. “When I saw my white privilege card, I gave it to him if it was okay. He laughed and called his partner.”
The Facebook post was accompanied by a selfie with an Anchorage officer.
“I told them I would support blue,” she said in the post.
An Anchorage spokesperson told Anchorage Daily News That the two officers had stopped her because knitting in a lane might indicate a driver under the influence.
