Kellyanne Conway thinks Anderson Cooper's eye roll was sexist

While that may or may not be the case, it seems President Donald Trump's senior adviser, his former campaign manager Kellyanne Conway, may have her work cut out for her when trying to explain the shock decision by the commander-in-chief to ax Federal Bureau of Investigation Director James Comey.

This led Cooper to roll his eyes at Conway - a moment that generated an nearly immediate and and extensive Twitter response.

Conway maintained during an interview on "Fox and Friends" Thursday morning that MI was related to the topic and Cooper's reaction was uncalled for.

"I think you're looking at the wrong set of facts here", Conway said.

"Thanks for the trip down memory lane", Conway responded. Conway also didn't address the president's sudden change in opinion, instead pivoting to how she'd appeared on Cooper's show in the fall and predicted that they would win MI. "He said one thing as a candidate, and now he's concerned as president?"

Conway, who coined the term "alternative facts" was earlier this year laughed at in an interview by an audience, after attacking people who lie on TV - exactly the thing she has been accused of doing. Like, "Can you imagine having a male anchor on a network roll eyes at Sean Spicer?" Comey oversaw the probe into alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election and had been investigating possible ties between Trump associates and Russian officials.

Conway last month attempted to redefine feminism - and the dictionary really wasn't impressed. Since that time, the formerly ubiquitous Conway has seen her public profile diminish considerably, so much so that Saturday Night Live parodied her absence on this past weekend's show with a sketch called "Where In The World Is KellyAnne Conway?".

"As a candidate, Donald Trump praised James Comey", Cooper said.

Then again, there's a part of me that also believes no one can be this dense and she's most likely manipulating the situation to her own advantage.

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

"I don't consider myself a feminist", Conway told the Washington Post.

Both statements were contradicted shortly afterwards by White House spokesman Sean Spicer.
