Kellyanne Responds to Anderson Cooper's 'Sexism'

White House counsel Kellyanne Conway was on the receiving end of a now infamous Anderson Cooper eyeroll Wednesday night. The CNN anchor brought Conway on his show to discuss President Trump's firing of FBI Director James Comey. In one particular exchange, Cooper had Conway listen to several clips of candidate Donald Trump praising Comey on the campaign trail last year. Instead of telling Cooper what he wanted to hear and admit to Trump's hypocrisy, Conway instead thanked the CNN anchor for reminding her how many states Trump won in the election. Cue the eyeroll from Cooper.

Conway, having had a chance to see Cooper's eyeroll for herself, suggested to "Fox and Friends" Thursday morning that Cooper's treatment of her amounted to sexism.

“Let me tell you something, Hillary Clinton is in search of sexism as an excuse for why her disastrous candidacy and campaign lost six months ago. I face sexism a lot of times when I show up for interviews like that. Could you imagine having a male anchor on a network roll eyes at Hillary Clinton or a female representative spokeswoman for President Obama or President Bill Clinton? I think not.”

Accusing him of sexism may be a stretch, but Cooper certainly should at least try and hide his political bias.
