Trump-turncoat Alyssa Farah Griffin gushes over Maggie Haberman, reminisces working together

Former President Donald Trump’s one-time communications director Alyssa Farah Griffin may style herself a “conservative,” but even more than her continued bashing of her old boss since leaving the White House a month before his term ended, her admission of who she “worked together” with while on the inside stands as proof grifting RINOs will do anything to advance their own careers.

Griffin’s condemnation of Trump was enough to earn her a spot as the token Republican on ABC’s “The View” and on Monday’s episode, she demonstrated how meaningless that appointment was as the ladies brought in the New York Times’s Maggie Haberman for their latest Trump Derangement Syndrome taping.

As Haberman peddled the release of her book “Confidence Man: The Making of Donald Trump and the Breaking of America,” Griffin was all too pleased to call out her shared experience with the Times reporter.

“Maggie, I can speak from personal experience–we worked together when I was at the White House–and there was no reporter who got under Donald Trump’s skin the way you did,” she claimed, “but he was also fixated on and seemed to almost want your approval.”

“There were countless times you’ll remember that I would have to go grab you and say, ‘He wants to do an interview now.’ And in fact, a couple of times, if the terms weren’t right, you’d say no,” Griffin continued to gush. “Why do you think he’s so fixated on you–and it goes into the same question of afraid of you?”

“Alyssa, I really think it’s about The New York Times, which he is…uniquely obsessed with, and this has gone back for decades,” Haberman offered. “His sense of being from the outer boroughs in New York City, the elites who he felt like looked down on him, even though he wanted their approval.”

“I really think that’s a lot of what it’s about and I’m just the reporter who he most identifies with,” she concluded.

Of course, Trump’s recent remarks about “Maggot” Haberman were far from the glowing approval that either ladies were eager to portray. Ahead of the release of her book, the president took to Truth Social to rail against “Another Fake book…this one, supposedly very boring and stale, by self appointed head case, Failing (unfunded liability!) New York Times writer,” Haberman.

“Maggot Hagerman of the Unfunded Liability plagued New York Times is my self appointed Biographer, even though she got the Russia, Russia, Russia Hoax & the Mueller Report conclusion completely wrong & refused to write about the FACT that the Democrats spied on my campaign, Lied to Congress, & Cheated and Lied to the FISA Court,” Trump continued. “Maggot was also duped on Impeachment Hoax #1 & Impeachment Hoax #2, & said in 2016 that, ‘Trump will NOT run for President.’ She is a bad writer with very bad sources!”

Haberman seemed to offer something of a defense of Trump’s post on “The View” when she blamed journalists from decades prior for crafting a persona of the businessman before his presidential run.

“Where I do think there is a significant criticism of the media is the 1970s, 1980s, 1990s, when he was doing all of this myth making about himself and building this artifice brick by brick–and each brick was a news story,” she argued, “and he was washed, you know, anew of all his various problems with each story. And that, I think, is something the industry needs to deal with.”

As for Griffin, no one appeared excited about her joining the program when she was hired because she represents everything conservatives despise about the establishment and all that progressives can’t stand about Trump.
