Former President Trump blasted his former strategic communications director, Alyssa Farah, as a “backbencher” and an “inglorious lightweight” Saturday after she appeared on CNN and said that Trump conceded to her that he lost shortly after Election Day last November.

Farah, who also served as press secretary to then-Vice President Mike Pence, told CNN anchor Pamela Brown that she was “not sure” if Trump now believes that he lost the election fair and square.

“I know he wants to protect his ego at all costs, but Trump has to know he lost because I remember at the time reporting, talking to folks in the White House saying, ‘Yeah, he knows he lost, he’s just coming around to it,” Brown told Farah.

The former strategic communications director said it was “scary” that Trump believes the election was stolen from him.

“He told me shortly after that he knew he lost, but then folks got around him. They got information in front of him, and I think his mind genuinely might have been changed about that, and that’s scary because he did lose,” Farah responded.

“And the facts are out there and they’ve lost every court case, they’ve had countless times to prove any sort of fraud and haven’t been able to. So it is actually kind of more scary that he believes it,” Farah told Brown.

Farah, who frequently touts her service as “honorable,” also has a habit of casting stones from her glass house. Trump responded to Farah’s claims shortly after her CNN appearance.

“It’s amazing how these people leave with respect and adoration for me and others in the White House, but as soon as CNN or other cameras get shoved in their face, or the losers from ‘The View’ ask a question, or money gets thrown at them, or someone writes a fake book, inglorious lightweights like Farah change so quickly,” the former president said in a statement through his Save America PAC.

“I watched this clown on television saying exactly what they wanted her to say and I watched the lies. Was she paid by low-ratings CNN? By the way, as soon as the Crime of the Century happened on November 3rd, I knew the Election was Rigged and Stolen, and never changed my view on that one bit. I did not go soft on the ‘Real’ Big Lie, the Election Scam, and never will. Backbencher said I told her I lost the Election– never did,” Trump continued.

The former president explained that anyone who has a doubt about whether or not the Election was stolen simply has to look “at the thousands of pages of documents and evidence– which continues to mount.”

Trump then insinuated that Farah’s departure from the White House, which came just one month before he left office, was not nearly as amicable as she makes it out to be.

“When we told Alyssa to ‘hit the road,’ she wrote a very nice letter stating that working for ‘Trump’ was the ‘honor of a lifetime’…Show the rest of the letter Alyssa, and explain why you wrote it!” the former President demanded.

Farah has been doing her own tour de press, appearing frequently on CNN and “The View,” righteously denouncing her former boss.

On Monday, the former strategic communications director tweeted in response to Trump’s statement, “I see I have honeymoon well wishes from my former boss! Too kind!”
