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.

E. Jean Carroll’s rape allegations against Trump exposed a depressing fact about the American public — according to this conservative
This week, former advice columnist E. Jean Carroll published explosive allegations that President Donald Trump had raped her in a department store in the 1990s. In response, the President tweeted that she was "not his type" and that he'd never met her.
As the Democratic debates begin, media commenters wondered why a credible accusation of rape against a sitting President is not enough to permanently sink his chances at re-election, with some blaming the media for moving on too fast.
Writing in the conservative publication The Bulwark, Jonathan V. Last notes that the media did its job. And that it's the US public that lacks the moral compass to ditch the president, despite multiple allegations of sexual assault.
Democrats win huge emoluments clause Trump violations suit
Congressional Democrats are being allowed to forge ahead with their emoluments case against Trump after a federal ruling landed in their favor Tuesday. Democrats are expected to now begin obtaining financial records from the Trump Organization.
The Wall Street Journal reported that U.S. District Judge Emmet Sullivan denied a request from Justice Department lawyers to pause the case to allow an immediate appeal to a higher court in a setback for the president. The Justice Department said it would make an emergency plea directly to an appeals court in Washington, a long-shot legal tactic that is rarely granted in ordinary litigation.
