Another former staff member in the Donald Trump administration is cashing in on their time in the White House.
Since Trump’s departure from Washington D.C., many ex-staffers have begun emerging from the pits of hell from whence they came, looking for a paycheck and some semblance of legitimacy. They have no problem disavowing their former boss while simultaneously earning a living based solely on their experience in Trump’s administration.
In fact, many of the ex-staffers willing to sell their souls played a key role in the Former President’s demise, which happened to center around his pandemic messaging.
For some reason, Trump was advised to take the podium every day just as the pandemic broached America’s shores — a move many consider to be a determining factor in his 2020 defeat.
There’s been immense retroactive debate amongst Trump staffers about his daily White House briefings where he often feuded with reporters who were looking to secure the President’s downfall.
Alyssa Farah Griffin, a former staffer in the Trump administration, played a major role in this debacle.
She’s since accepted a position as co-host on The View, replacing Meghan McCain as the token conservative cast member.
Griffin, 33, served as White House director of strategic communications under President Donald Trump, placing her front and center in the messaging failures during the height of the China Virus pandemic.
She will join co-hosts Whoopi Goldberg, Sara Haines, Joy Behar, and Sunny Hostin each morning beginning in September, according to sources.
The announcement is expected as soon as Thursday, but some believe the immense backlash ABC received will force them to change course.
“Stay tuned,” a spokesperson from ABC told reporters on Monday.
According to sources, a deal has yet to be made official but it’s likely both Griffin and ABC will come to an agreement very soon.
Meanwhile, a renewed case of Trump Derangement Syndrome has erupted following rumors of Griffin’s hiring.
Celebrities are already beginning to voice their concern, claiming they will boycott the View if Griffin is made a permeant co-cost based solely on her association with Former President Donald Trump.
Wanda Sykes, a far-left comedian, pulled out of a guest appearance due to ABC’s decision to feature Griffin on the panel.
“Her appointment will also cost us bookings. Wanda Sykes pulled out because she didn’t want to be on the show with her,” the source said. Sykes isn’t alone in her sentiment, either, according to a report.

Several sources expressed confusion and concern over the choice. “My jaw dropped when I was told that she was the pick. It makes no sense,” a source reportedly close to the discussions told the Daily Mail.
Griffin’s fellow co-hosts are reportedly unhappy with the decision as well. According to the same source, Joy Behar is particularly upset with the decision, claiming the liberal cost doesn’t feel Griffin is “authentic and changes her opinions based on who her paymaster is.”
This could be the first time we ever agreed with Joe Behar!
