The NBC show played a clip of Trump's phone interview on ABC's "Good Morning America" the previous day, during which the businessman responded to a critical ad of women reading his insulting remarks on women.
"Well, you know, I have seen it," Trump told
ABC host George Stephanopoulos, before going on to dismiss the ad
, from an anti-Trump super-PAC founded by a former Mitt Romney aide, as "sour grapes" from his detractors.
"Just a couple of minutes later, he appeared live on this show," NBC host Matt Lauer remarked Wednesday, playing a clip from Trump's appearance on the "Today" show from Tuesday.
"I have not seen the ad, so I would have to see it. I've heard about the ad, but I have not seen the ad," Trump said during the NBC appearance.
Trump has caught flak recently for other off-the-cuff remarks or contradictions, including claiming Tuesday that he "never said
" he was going to pay for the legal fees of a supporter who sucker-punched a protester at a recent rally.
