Conway Accuses Cooper of Sexism Over Viral Eye Roll

Kellyanne Conway is calling Anderson Cooper's eye roll sexist. "I think not", Conway said during her appearance on "Fox and Friends".

'Can you imagine rolling your eyes... having a male anchor on a network roll eyes at Hillary Clinton, a female representative spokeswoman for President Obama or President Bill Clinton? Conway believes so. But that being said, it is one thing for Conway to call out Cooper for his unprofessional behavior toward her, and it is another thing entirely for her to invalidate the sexism faced by other women.

"But previously, as a candidate, Donald Trump was saying that was the right thing", Anderson said to Conway Tuesday following former FBI Director James Comey's firing. His eye roll was spurred by Conway's response to clips of President Trump praising Comey's handling of the Clinton email situation, according to Fox News Insider.

"You're going back to the campaign", Conway said, CNN reports.

Cooper responded with a dramatic eyeroll.

"The president expects people who are serving in his administration to be loyal to the country and to be loyal to the administration", Conway told Fox News' "Fox & Friends" program, and in addition, she believes "certainly Rod Rosenstein, the deputy attorney general who oversees the Federal Bureau of Investigation director, his memo clearly laid out numerous morale [issues]".


Harris Faulkner said "it's not a good look" for a journalist to be rolling their eyes as Cooper did.

She also accused Cooper's actions as being a double standard. Cooper inquired. Conway again pointed to the words in the firing letter where Trump thanked Comey for assuring him that he was not under investigation.

"Let me see who tweeted that".

"I don't know who had access to my account", she said.

"This idea that the FBI has one thing going on, and it's the Russian Federation investigation, and the idea that this is somehow Jim Comey Attorney at Law, one person in charge of it - it's irresponsible to not report to your viewers that many people are involved", Conway said.

Conway also earlier this year talked about the fictional "Bowling Green massacre" during an interview.
