- Former Trump adviser and Pentagon spokeswoman Alyssa Farah Griffin joined the liberal chat show The View in August

- On Monday during a discussion about 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 singled out co-host Whoopi Goldberg for praise, however, saying she had been supportive of all on the show
The View’s conservative co-host hit back at her colleagues live on air on Monday, accusing the other presenters of being intolerant and fostering a culture of ‘toxic femininity,’ based on their disagreement of her decision to work in Donald Trump’s administration.
Alyssa Farah Griffin, who joined the show in August after serving as an advisor and communications director to Trump’s administration, lashed out at the other women during a discussion about whether ‘toxic femininity’ was holding women back.
‘We’ve come a long way in critiquing some of the male practices that are not helpful, and need to be called out,’ Griffin began.
She said that women could be each other’s worst enemies, and said that some of her worst bosses and colleagues have been women.
Co-host Ana Navarro then interrupted her, remarking: ‘That’s what happens when you work with Kellyanne Conway.’
Griffin, frustrated, replied: ‘Well, I can’t really get a word in without you attacking me, so I wouldn’t say this is totally different.

‘This isn’t, like, a totally different environment of women supporting each other.
‘But 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.’
Griffin, 33, then singled out co-host Whoopi Goldberg for praise, thanking her for being kind.
‘I have to say, I have to give Whoopi credit. You have been just like so supportive of all the women on this show,’ Griffin said.
‘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 said that she thought it was essential for women to believe in themselves.
‘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,’ Goldberg said.
She also said women should not take online criticism to heart.
‘These are people who don’t know us, don’t know anything about our families, don’t know anything about our lives and we believe what they say, and we put that belief in our pockets and we hold onto it,’ Goldberg said.
‘People don’t know who you are. They don’t know anything about you.
‘Stop buying into the B.S. Please. Please. OK,’ she concluded.
