Alyssa Farah Condemns Former Boss Donald Trump Flushing Documents Down the Toilet on ‘The View’: “Thank Heavens I Never Saw His Bathroom”

In New York Times White House correspondent Maggie Haberman’s new book, Confidence Man, she reported that he apparently flushed documents down the toilet. As former Trump White House Communications Director and The View guest co-host Alyssa Farah put it on today’s episode of the ABC talk show: “Thank heavens I never saw his bathroom!”

On Tuesday morning, Farah stood up to Joy Behar during a cross-examination about Trump's COVID response, of which she played a key role as his communications director.

Alyssa Farah returned to The View today, and like many outspoken fans of the show, Sunny Hostin was ready for her to depart all over again. The guest host, who will be discussing hot topics on the panel until this Thursday, Feb. 10, managed to rile up Hostin as they chatted about the Cuomo administration, masks in elementary schools, and more. As The View searches for a conservative replacement for Meghan McCain, it seems Hostin disapproves of former Trump staffer Farah in particular.
"Anybody who ever says that I thought the Election was legit, even for a moment, is wrong," Trump said in a statement.
