Alyssa Farah Griffin, former communications director for ex-president Donald Trump, has recently joined  Whoopi Goldberg, Joy BeharSunny Hostin, and Sara Haines as a co-host on The View.

However, she hasn’t exactly had a smooth transition into the job.

Alyssa had previously served as a guest co-host in the rush to replace Meghan McCain’s conservative-leaning seat.

In May, Alyssa had a fiery interaction episode when she challenged Kellyanne Conway on condemning Donald Trump in the wake of the January 6 riots.

Kellyanne was President Donald Trump’s top advisor and campaign manager in 2016.

“Alyssa, if you’re saying that, somehow, we’re supposed to think that you’ve seen the light and not just your name in lights, that’s not fair,” Kellyanne said on the View.

“That’s such a cheap shot!” Alyssa said.

“You’re not answering the question.”

Kellyanne started to discuss Trump’s rumored future campaign instead of the January 6 incident, and Griffin wasn’t having it.

“You’re talking about maybe a second term, you’ve never denounced Donald Trump – when he incited a violent mob that attacked the US Capitol,” Alyssa said said.

Kellyanne then said that she made previous comments to ABC condemning the riots.

Despite Alyssa pleading for Kellyanne’s disapproval of their former boss, the new host’s presence alone has been enough to turn people away from The View.

According to the Daily Beast, when Wanda Sykes’ publicist was made aware that Alyssa was going to co-host Friday’s episode, Wanda wanted out.

A View insider told the Daily Beast: “She didn’t want to be part of helping a Trumper launder her reputation.”

The Sun’s request for comment from The View and a Wanda Sykes spokesperson were not immediately returned on Tuesday.

Wanda has been an outspoken critic of former president Trump in the past.

In an interview with NPR promoting Wanda’s Netflix special Not Normal, she talked about how hard it was to make fun of Trump, but for all the wrong reasons.

Wanda said: “You would think, ‘Oh boy, there’s so much to make fun of,’ but really I can’t write anything funnier or more ridiculous than what Trump actually says.”

Although Alyssa has turned on Trump, fans still criticize the co-host.

One fan said: “We don’t need toxic Trump rejects for this show to be interesting!”

Another angry viewer said: “If she is hired, I’m out all over again!

“Do the producers not see how excited we all were when Meghan left?!! I have not missed her for one second!”

A third fan added: “I don’t like her at all. I was hoping they would take a closer look at Tara Setmayer. 

“I can’t tolerate any of these Trumpers who should be shunned, not hired.”
