Donald Trump reacted with surprise Thursday on ABC News when he learned that he had not yet hurled an insult on Twitter at “Good Morning America” host George Stephanopoulos.
Stephanopoulos referenced The New York Times’ printed two-page list of all the jabs Trump had taken at others during the campaign.
“Were you one of them?” the Republican nominee asked the ABC host.
“Actually, I wasn’t,” Stephanopoulos replied. “I was a little surprised at that.”
Trump couldn’t believe it.
“Oh, well, you should have been,” the billionaire said. “I’m surprised. Let’s go check it. I can’t believe I didn’t include you.”
Throughout the 2016 cycle, Trump has used Twitter to sting journalists and his political rivals with crude insults.
“Look, I believe in fighting back,” Trump said. “When people are against me, when they tell lies, I have the power of this instrument. And frankly, sometimes I use that.”
