Anderson Cooper’s now viral eyeroll is exactly the kind of “sexism” Kellyanne Conway says she faces from the media regularly.
The White House counselor reacted to an interview with the CNN anchor in which he noticeably rolled his eyes as she spoke just hours after President Trump had fired FBI Director James Comey.

Trump supporters came to Conway’s defense while those in the anti-Trump camp applauded Cooper who rolled his eyes as she defended the president. Video of the moment blew up on the internet with tweets and memes.
“Let me tell you something,” Conway said on “Fox & Friends” Thursday. “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.”
“Could you imagine rolling your eyes, having a male anchor on the network roll eyes at Hillary Clinton, at somebody, a female representative spokeswoman for President Obama or President Bill Clinton?” she added. “I think not.”
Not surprisingly, the haters continued their Twitter tantrum, but many gave Conway a thumbs up.

@TEN_GOP Could be “sexism”, but more likely it is the most of the media’s ferocious anti-Trumpism.

The Left “stands for women,” then applauds Anderson Cooper rolling his eyes at Kellyanne Conway. Makes sense.

@dcexaminer Anderson Cooper owes her a huge apology for his total disrespect and classless behavior. Talk about war on women – he’s it.
