Donald Trump took to the morning shows on Wednesday, after a strong showing in Tuesday’s primaries and caucuses, and was asked about a new super PAC ad that takes him to task for his long history of sexist comments.
Within a matter of minutes, Trump said one thing to one network and the exact opposite to another.
“Well, I have seen it and it was a Romney deal,” Trump told ABC’s Good Morning America first. The one-minute spot is being run by Our Principles PAC, an anti-Trump super PAC founded by Mitt Romney’s former deputy campaign manager.
Mere minutes later, he was asked about the same spot on NBC’s Today Show. “I have not seen the ad, so I would have to see it,” Trump claimed. “I’ve heard about the ad, but I have not seen the ad.”
Trump has spent much of the past month attacking rival Ted Cruz as “Lying Ted” for his record of dishonesty.
A Trump spokeswoman previously dismissed the ad — which features women reading quotes from Trump calling other women “bimbo,” “dog,” “fat pig,” and other offensive names — as merely statements “made as a television character.”
