Conway links Anderson Cooper's eye roll to sexism

White House counselor Kellyanne Conway on Thursday appeared to accuse CNN's Anderson Cooper of sexism for rolling his eyes during an on-air interview with her.

“I face sexism a lot of times when I show up for interviews like that,” Conway said on “Fox & Friends.”

The incident came during a Tuesday CNN interview about President Trump's firing of FBI Director James Comey. Cooper played clips of Trump praising Comey's comments about his investigation into Democratic presidential nominee Hillary ClintonHillary Diane Rodham ClintonTrump complains of 'fake polls' after surveys show him trailing multiple Democratic candidates Hillary Clinton responds to Trump tweets telling Dem lawmakers to 'go back' to their countries The Young Turks' Cenk Uygur: Here's how to choose a president MORE's private email server during campaign stops, including one in Michigan.

Conway responded, "You are conflating two things that don’t belong together. Thanks for the trip down memory lane. I was on your show often last fall, saying we were going to win Michigan and how we were going to do it," prompting Cooper's eye-roll.

Conway suggested it only happened because she is a woman who works for a Republican.

“Could you imagine ... having a male anchor on the network roll eyes at Hillary Clinton, at somebody — a female representative spokeswoman for President Obama or President Bill ClintonWilliam (Bill) Jefferson ClintonMarching toward a debt crisis The tragic cycle of genocide denial has returned: This time, Nigeria John Lithgow releases poem on the downfall of Acosta MORE? I think not."

Conway added that while Clinton is wrong to attribute her election loss to sexism, she actually does face sexism regularly.

"Hillary Clinton is in search of sexism as a lame excuse for why her disastrous candidacy and campaign lost six months ago. I face sexism a lot of times when I show up for interviews like that," she said.
