NBC: Trump contradicts himself in 2 interviews minutes apart

The “Today” show on Wednesday called out Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump for “apparently contradicting himself” during back-to-back interviews this week.
 
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.
 
{mosads}”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.
