BREAKING NEWS – New York City, New York – On ABC’s “This Week”, host George Stephanopoulos grilled VP-elect Mike Pence over Donald Trump talking to the leader of Taiwan as he transitions to president.
STEPHANOPOULOS: Do you think it was improper for Donald Trump to take a call from Taiwan, considering their nation is currently at odds with China?
PENCE: I have to tell you, George, it’s — it’s a little mystifying to me that President Obama can — can reach out to a murdering dictator in — in Cuba in the last year and be hailed as a hero for doing it and President-elect Donald Trump takes a courtesy call from a democratically elected leader in Taiwan and it’s become — it’s become something of a controversy.
STEPHANOPOULOS: (Stammering as he spoke). Well… uh, that’s different. Uh… everybody knows that’s different. It’s because… uh, it’s because… well it’s because blacks are good with interacting with Hispanics. Yeah… uh, that’s it. And white people are not very proficient in dealing with the Chinese.
ABC is currently refusing to comment on the statement made by Stephanopoulos, or the cameraman getting fired during the taping of the show that yelled out, “George, you’re an idiot!”
