ME-OW! The claws came out on The View as co-host Alyssa Farah Griffin slammed her liberal colleagues over their attacks on her for serving as former President Donald Trump’s advisor and communications director.
She accused them of being intolerant and ‘fostering a culture of toxic femininity.’
Griffin, who just joined the show in August, began by stating, “We’ve come a long way in critiquing some of the male practices that are not helpful, and need to be called out.”
She went on to explain that women have made a lot of progress but can still be each other’s worst enemies in the workplace, noting that some of the worst bosses and coworkers she’s had have been women.
However, before she could continue, co-host Ana Navarro interrupted to snottily remark, “That’s what happens when you work with Kellyanne Conway.”
“Well, I can’t really get a word in without you attacking me, so I wouldn’t say this is totally different,” Griffin snapped back.
“Madeleine Albright always said there’s a special place in hell for women who don’t help and support other women. And that’s something I try to live by. I think that we have a duty to try to give that back, especially for the women that come after us,” she continued.
Griffin then took a moment to praise co-host Whoopi Goldberg for being “so supportive of all the women on this show.”
She continued, “Because you’ve accomplished so much, and we’re all coming up under you, and just looking to 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 are hard on each other.”
Goldberg replied, “The bottom line is this. First, you got to believe. If you don’t believe, it doesn’t matter what else – I could be as supportive as I could be, but if you don’t believe you deserve it, you’re not going to listen, you know? That’s the first thing.”
She also advised women not to take online criticism too hard because those people “don’t know us, don’t know anything about our families, don’t know anything about our lives and we believe what they say.
“People don’t know who you are. They don’t know anything about you,” Goldberg added. “Stop buying into the B.S. Please. Please. OK,.”
