Good Morning America host Lara Spencer posted a picture on Instagram of her sitting on Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump’s lap while they both grin happily.

The post was caught by a CNN reporter and includes the caption: “Can’t beat having the REAL DonaldJTrump on #goodmorningamerica. :).”

The comments on the post range from disgust that she’s willingly engaging in physical contact with Donald Trump, to valid claims about how unprofessional this looks. Update: Spencer has changed the caption on the photo; it now reads “Let’s clear this up – I’m standing next to Donald Trump. Said a quick hello and welcomed him to the GMA studio for first time since he announced his candidacy.”


ABC News isn’t scheduled to host a Republican debate until February 6, 2016, but I guess this is one way keep Donald Trump happy until then.
