Annoying! The View’s conservative co-host Alyssa Farah Griffin hits back at fellow liberals for their intolerance and ‘toxic femininity’ after they shut her down for working with Trump
- Alyssa Farah Griffin, a former Trump adviser and Pentagon spokeswoman, joined liberal TV chat The View in August
- Griffin, 33, has been regularly assaulted by the other daytime show hosts, who do not share her political leanings
- On Monday, when discussing whether “toxic femininity” is holding women back, Griffin was interrupted by co-host Ana Navarro
- Griffin, frustrated, hit back – remarking that she was rarely able to finish her sentences, and said the show was hardly a supportive setting
- She did, however, single out co-host Whoopi Goldberg for her praise, saying she’s been supportive of everyone on the show.
The conservative co-host of The View hit back at her colleagues live on Monday, accusing fellow presenters of being intolerant and fostering a culture of ‘toxic femininity’, over their disagreement with her decision to work in administration of Donald Trump.
Alyssa Farah Griffin, who joined the show in August after serving as an adviser and communications director for the Trump administration, lashed out at other women during a discussion of whether ‘toxic femininity’ kept the women.
“We’ve come a long way in criticizing some of the male practices that aren’t helpful and need to be called out,” Griffin began.
She said women could be each other’s worst enemies and that some of her worst bosses and colleagues were women.
Co-host Ana Navarro then cut her off, remarking, “That’s what happens when you work with Kellyanne Conway.”
Griffin, frustrated, replied, “Well, I can’t really say a word without you attacking me, so I wouldn’t say it’s totally different.”

“It’s not, like, a totally different environment of women supporting each other.
“But Madeleine Albright always said there was a special place in hell for women who don’t help and support other women. And that’s something I try to live. I think we have a duty to try to give that back, especially for the women who will come after us.
Griffin, 33, then singled out co-host Whoopi Goldberg for her praise, thanking her for being kind.
“I have to say I have to give credit to Whoopi. You’ve been so supportive of all the women on this show,’ Griffin said.
“Because you’ve accomplished so much, and we all come under you, and I look at you and I think, I’m glad you said that because women support women more than they don’t, but I think it’s worth acknowledging when we’re tough on each other.

Goldberg said she thinks it’s essential for women to believe in themselves.
‘The bottom line is this. First, you must believe. If you don’t believe, no matter what – I could be as supportive as I can be, but if you don’t believe you deserve it, you’re not going to listen, you know? That’s the first thing,” Goldberg said.
She also said women shouldn’t take online criticism to heart.
“These are people who don’t know us, know nothing about our families, know nothing about our lives, and we believe what they say, and we put that belief in our pockets and we cling to it,” Goldberg says. .
“People don’t know who you are. They don’t know anything about you.
‘Stop buying in the BS please. Please. OK, she concluded.
