Last week George Stephanopoulos asked President Obama about Donald Trump. This morning on “GMA”, Stephanopoulos asked Trump about Obama, specifically the issue of Obama’s birth certificate.
“George, I know exactly what you’re getting at,” said Trump as the ABC News anchor brought up the issue. Stephanopoulos fired back: “The facts!” Trump then went on to say Stephanopoulos was being “co-opted” by “Obama and his minions.”
Over the weekend on “Reliable Sources” Howard Kurtz questioned whether Stephanopoulos should have brought up the birther issue with the president last week. Today’s “GMA” interview will add fuel to the fire that Trump’s presence in the news cycle is more about boosting the ratings for the final few weeks of “Celebrity Apprentice” and less about an actual run for the White House.
