Kellyanne Conway suggests Anderson Cooper's eye roll was sexist

CNN's Anderson Cooper on Tuesday couldn't suppress his frustration with White House counselor Kellyanne Conway's attempt to rehash President Trump's election victory. During a conversation about the firing of FBI Director James Comey, Conway kept spinning away from Cooper's questions. In turn, Cooper performed a Lucille Bluth-level eye roll that promptly went viral.

Conway visited Fox & Friends, President Trump's favorite morning show, on Thursday to tell her side of things. The real story here, she argued, is sexism.

"Hillary Clinton is in search of sexism as a lame excuse for why her disastrous candidacy and campaign lost six months ago," Conway said. "I face sexism a lot of times when I show up for interviews like that." Also at issue is sexism specifically against Republican women, Conway added, suggesting Cooper would not have rolled his eyes at Clinton herself or "a female representative spokeswoman for President Obama or President Bill Clinton."
