Trump campaign manager Kellyanne Conway wasn’t given many softballs during her interview on The View on Thursday.
In particular, co-host Whoopi Goldberg got into a heated exchange over why Trump hasn’t released his tax returns yet.
“Where are his damn tax returns?” she demanded, to applause from the audience. “What is Donald Trump hiding by not releasing that information?… I want to know since every other president has had to do it, where are the tax returns?”
Conway tried to say that he hadn’t released them because he was being audited by the IRS, but Goldberg cut her right off.
“It’s bull,” she said.
Conway then rolled out Standard Excuse No. 2: That Americans don’t really care what is in his tax returns.
“Everyone in America wants to know what their tax return will look like under a President Trump and a President Clinton,” she said.
Goldberg again wouldn’t have it.
“What is he hiding?” she asked.
“He’s not hiding anything!” Conway insisted.
Conway was then asked to comment on Kurt Eichenwald’s big story about a Trump-owned company that violated the United States trade embargo against Cuba in the 1990s. Conway’s explanation for this was so bad that Eichenwald himself wrote after watching it that “she just unknowingly confessed that Trump broke” trade embargo law.

"Brett Kavanaugh's penis is back in the news," Maher said. "The New York Times kind of tripped over his dick on this one."
Maher suggested the report reflects poorly on Kavanaugh's manhood.
"The problem is the woman, the victim, has no recollection of it happening -- which isn't really a ringing endorsement of his penis," Maher said.
‘It’s all up to Republicans’: Columnist wonders when the GOP will stand up to Trump
President Donald Trump's burgeoning scandal with Ukraine has one columnist wondering when Republicans will put country before party.
"I was going to write today about how House Democrats are handling the impeachment question. But the truth is, it’s largely irrelevant. As long as Republicans are united in opposition, President Donald Trump will stay in office," Bloomberg Opinion columnist Jonathan Bernstein wrote. "That’s not to say that there aren’t bad and worse choices for Democrats, but they’re not the ones who have the real decision to make."
