Alyssa Farah Griffin and Ana Navarro are introduced as the new co-hosts of “The View.”

The conservative co-host Alyssa Farah Griffin now formally co-hosts the ABC discussion show.

NEW Fox News articles can now be heard on audio! Alyssa Farah Griffin, who worked as the White House communications director during the Trump administration, and Ana Navarro were officially introduced as the new co-hosts of “The View” on Thursday.

Whoopi Goldberg, the co-host, stated that by including many viewpoints, they were paying homage to the show’s original creator, Barbara Walters. While Navarro will still host the show occasionally, Farah Griffin will appear every day. Farah Griffin and Navarro, who are both Republicans and scathing critics of Donald Trump, were featured in an ABC montage of important appearances.

“Barbara Walters had the idea to bring together women from many various backgrounds, walks of life, and professions to discuss the difficult topics that, to be honest, our elected officials frequently aren’t facing. We do this every day and are having crucial talks. I can’t express how much I’ve learned from everyone of you, but I will say that I hope to continue learning from each of you. I know you saw it in the preview there, but the previous couple of years have been a little turbulent for me “Farah Griffin elaborated on her tenure in the Trump administration after the announcement. It will occasionally become sporty, but I adore you ladies.

It will become more than just sports, Sunny Hostin chimed in.

Farah Griffin was a loyal aide in the Trump White House, serving under Vice President Mike Pence and the Pentagon as well, but since leaving the administration in December 2020, she has assailed Trump as a threat to democracy and expressed regret at working for him. Critics on both sides of the aisle have suggested she’s shifted her views to make herself more palatable to the media.

Navarro, a left-wing Republican who supports Democrats, was also named as an official co-host, but won’t be appearing on the show full time for the forseeable future. Navarro has frequently appeared as a guest host and contributor over the years, endearing herself to the audience as a staunch supporter of liberal policies.

“As you all know, most weeks Im on a plane almost four times a week and I spent countless hours on planes, at airports, in hotels. Sometimes it gets lonely, but I also know its a huge, enormous, incomparable privilege to be part of a 25-year institution, and whether people like it or not, whether some people acknowledge it or not, it is the relevance and the importance and the platform that ‘The View’ represents, and I and we at this table have spent a lot of time, a lot of time talking about representation and saying representation matters,” Navarro said, adding that it was an opportunity she had to grab with “both hands.”

Farah Griffin has been a frequent guest host of “The View” this season as a conservative voice on the show. Lincoln Project adviser Tara Setmayer, former White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham and Lindsey Granger also joined the “The View” hosts throughout the season.

A source told Fox News Digital at the end of July that “a lot of people” wanted Navarro to be the new permanent host.

An official co-host spot has remained vacant since former conservative host Meghan McCain announced she was leaving the show in July 2021.

When Behar criticized “recovering junkies” who appear on “The View” to turn against Trump in June, it appeared as like she was taking a swipe at Farah Griffin and Grisham.

“These individuals who are currently all, like, recovered addicts that appear on this show are recovering addicts in the Trump world. They appear on this show, then appear on other shows before abruptly turning against Trump “She spoke.

In a July interview on “The View,” Farah Griffin refuted the idea that people who served in the Trump administration shouldn’t have a voice.

“There are others who believe that because Stephanie Grisham, Olivia Troye, and I worked for Donald Trump, we don’t deserve to have a voice. I disagree. I am grateful to those women and I stand with them and Cassidy Hutchinson because we are now telling the truth in an honest manner and admitting our mistakes. We all make errors, but I’m glad these women are speaking up about it “She spoke.
