Kellyanne Conway Shuts Down Anti-Trump Co-Host on ‘The View’

Kellyanne Conway got into a heated confrontation on “The View” and ended up shutting down one of the anti-Trump co-hosts.

Conway, President Donald Trump’s former White House adviser, appeared on the controversial ABC show to promote her new book, “Here’s the Deal.”

However, Conway’s support for President Trump soon made her a target of the show’s hosts.

Conway and guest co-host Alyssa Farah Griffin, also a former Trump official, had a heated back and forth.

Griffin worked for Vice President Mike Pence and had other roles in Trump’s White House but is now part of a rotating cast of guest hosts for The View as they look for a permanent conservative co-host.

Despite working closely with Trump, Griffin turned against him after the 2020 election.

“I broke with the president ahead of Jan. 6 when the ‘big lie’ started being shared,” she said.

“I resigned on Dec. 4 and I spoke out after Jan. 6 when I saw a violent mob assault the Capitol.”

Conway fired back, “Is there a question in there?”

“Yes,” said Griffin.

“How do you still defend him?

“Do you still think he could be a good president after he tried to overturn our democracy?”

“I left three months before you did, for my children, I have four of them,” Conway said.

“I said less drama more mama.

“And that’s exactly what I did.

“I think you stayed a whole month after the election that you were having a problem with.”

“I wanted to help my junior staff get jobs,” said Griffin.

“I stayed for three weeks after…”

Conway shut her down:

“I think people should know that because I haven’t seen you since you changed.

“But I want to say this to you.”

Griffin interrupted, “Just to be clear, I didn’t change.

“I swore an oath to the Constitution.”

“I don’t want to argue,” said Conway.

“You get to talk here every day.”

“I swore an oath to the Constitution, not to Donald Trump,” Griffin said.

“As we all did,” said Conway.

“Alyssa,” Conway continued, “if you’re saying that somehow you think we’re supposed to think that you’ve seen the light and not your name in lights that’s not fair.”

“That’s such a cheap shot,” Griffin whined.

The audience tried to boo Conway at one point but Whoopi Goldberg stepped in and scolded them.

According to The Daily Beast:

“I write extensively in this book, that I’m the closest person to Donald Trump to tell him, the earliest, that he came up short. It broke my heart. I wanted him to get re-elected,” she exclaimed.

“He should have won huge. He had all these accomplishments, he’s running against a guy stuck in the basement, and you’re in the middle of the pandemic.”

At this point, the studio audience began booing Conway, prompting host Whoopi Goldberg to jump in and chastise her own home crowd.

“Let me do something before you say anything else,” the show’s moderator declared.

“Listen, this is The View, and this is her view and she’s talking about how she feels and what she knows, please don’t boo her!”

Conway, for her part, snarked that the crowd was likely booing her for saying President Joe Biden was “staying in the basement.”
