The two were discussing President Donald Trump's recent firing of former FBI Director James Comey when Conway brought up Trump's victory in Michigan. The seemingly unrelated interjection prompted the epic eye roll that made headlines and went viral on social media on Wednesday.
Conway maintained during an interview on "Fox and Friends" Thursday morning that Michigan was related to the topic and Cooper's reaction was uncalled for.
“He had me sit through a bunch of tapes showing then candidate Trump commending Jim Comey about Hillary Clinton's emails, talking about him etc. And the fact is that they showed all these clips and it showed candidate Trump in Grand Rapids, Michigan, and I said 'Hey, thanks for the trip down memory lane and talked about winning Michigan,' and then he rolled his eyes," Conway said.
“Let me tell you something, Hillary Clinton is in search of sexism as an excuse for why her disastrous candidacy and campaign lost six months ago, but I face sexism a lot of times when I show up for interviews like that," he continued. "Can you imagine a male anchor rolling their eyes at Hillary Clinton or a female representative spokeswoman for President Obama or President Bill Clinton? I think not.”
