Former President Trump slammed former communications director Alyssa Farah Griffin on Sunday, claiming she should be removed from ABC’s iconic daytime political talk show “The View.”
Trump also tweeted a series of tweets from Farah Griffin in December 2020, in which she praised Trump and called serving in his government a “honor of a lifetime.”
“Alyssa Farah totally misrepresented her true feelings about me and the Trump Administration in order to get her job at ratings disaster CNN, and a seat with the low IQ people at The View. Look at what she said about me, and that doesn’t include the beautiful letter she sent and other statements she made. They should fire her for misrepresentation or fraud. Release the letter, Alyssa!” Trump said in a statement on his Truth Social platform.
She has been harshly critical of Trump since the former President left the White House in January of 2021, blaming him and his followers for the Jan. 6, 2021, attack on the Capitol.
Griffin was formerly a loyal member of the Trump administration until the events of January 6th, 2021.
Farah Griffin joined CNN as a contributor immediately after leaving the Trump administration, and ABC chose her to replace Meghan McCain, another conservative Trump critic and daughter of the late Senator John McCain, during the summer.
Farah Griffin has attempted to refute claims made by detractors on both the left and right that she has shifted her political opinions or grown more critical of Trump in order to acquire prominence.
This hasn’t prevented her from becoming a major target for pro-Trump conservatives on social media, who tend to view her as a traitor to the Republican party.
