Despite falling short of the 50% of votes needed to win Tuesday night, ABC’s Good Morning America crowned Democratic hopeful Jon Ossoff as the victor of last night’s special election in Georgia. Correspondent Cecilia Vega and anchor George Stephanopoulos gushed over the “rookie” who came “just short” of “winning the whole thing.” GMA used the race’s closeness as a reason to bash Trump while political analyst John Avlon spun that Democrats had “an emotional victory.”
Vega began her report touting this race was a judgement on the president. Its “being called a referendum on President Trump,” she gushed, adding that Democrats hoped to “deliver a knock-out punch to President Trump.” After noting that Trump took credit for helping to stop Ossoff’s momentum, Vega again criticized that Ossoff getting less than 50% of the votes was actually a bad sign for Republicans.
VEGA: But there is no way around it. This once Republican stronghold formerly held by Newt Gingrich is now competitive and Democrats feel they have a strong chance.
Ironically, the ABC chyron was more accurate than what was actually said during the report. It read: “Democrat fails to win after Trump endorsement.”
