George Stephanopoulos’ wife says they sat in parking lot and cried for 45 mins upon learning of RBG’s passing

Rest assured, there is no liberal bias amid the mainstream media, that’s just a figment of your imagination.

And pay no attention to the claim that ABC’s “Good Morning America” anchor George Stephanopoulos, a former Clintonite, cried in a parking lot for 45 minutes on Saturday after learning that Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the head of the liberal faction on the Supreme Court, had just died.

 

That’s according to Stephanopoulos’ wife, actress Ali Wentworth, who recounted the family’s reaction Monday during an appearance on ABC’s “Live with Kelly and Ryan.”

“We go to dinner, and ten minutes into Dinner, George looks at his phone and runs out of the restaurant,” Wentworth said, before randomly joking about being out in the public with “full-on” COVID symptoms.

“George runs out, by the way, with the wallet, and me and our two girls, Elliott and Harper, we are just sitting at this restaurant for 45 minutes, enraged that he’s just left us,” she said. “So then I go outside, I see George pacing on the street.”

Wentworth explained that she went back inside the restaurant, but her and the girls grew impatient — she doesn’t offer any timeline of events.

“We’re getting upset. We keep going out, ‘Daddy, Daddy,’ bugging him. He’s live on ABC, talking about Ruth Bader Ginsburg,” she said, before acknowledging that she was unaware of what was going on.

“I’m going ‘Hope she’s worth it, whatever woman he’s seeing,'” Wentworth continued. “We finally get in the car. — me and the girls get into the car. We are waiting, waiting, waiting, waiting. He finally comes in. He bursts into tears. Ruth Bader Ginsburg has died. My two daughters burst — we sat there in the parking lot, crying for 45 minutes.”

Host Kelly Ripa announced that she’s about to start crying again, and proceeds to tear up.

Right on cue, Wentworth produced an RBG emotional support doll, which she gave to a Ripa — an eager recipient — while explaining it was her daughter’s doll, who had given it to her over the weekend.

After giving away her daughter’s doll, Wentworth further displayed the emotional toll Ginsberg’s death was having on her by joking, “Anyway, I thought George was crying about the brisket, but it really was about Ruth Bader Ginsburg. So that was my Friday night.”

Interestingly, this is not the first time Wentworth has dished about her hubby crying.

In 2018, the actress supposedly joked that Stephanopoulos cried out of concern that his interview with fired FBI director James Comey may be overshadowed online by Beyoncé, who was performing at the Coachella music festival.

“He started crying because he didn’t want Beyoncé to beat him in the trend,” his wife told Stephen Colbert on The Late Show.

As for the emotional reaction to Ginsburg’s passing, that’s understandable given her stellar career and the impact she has had on liberal issues.

At the same time, there weren’t any stories about noted conservative news anchors crying in a parking lot for 45 minutes after the 2016 death of Justice Antonin Scalia, who was equally revered by the right for his strict interpretation of the Constitution.
