Barbara Walters is not amused by Donald Trump's "October Surprise" stunt this week, and delivered a personal message to the mogul on "The View."
During a discussion on Thursday of Trump's $5-million offer to President Obama to release his academic records and passport information, Walters turned toward the camera and gave a personal message to her friend.
"Donald, you and I have known each other for many years and you know that I am your friend and you know I think you are a brilliant businessman and you are great on television and you have a fascinating personality," Walters said. "Donald, you're making a fool of yourself. You're not hurting Obama, you're hurting Donald and that hurts me because you're a decent man. Stop it. Get off it, Donald."
Even die-hard Republican Elisabeth Hasselbeck wasn't impressed with Trump's stunt. "If anything, why aren't you asking for something that's really important?" Hasselbeck wondered. "Like the information about Benghazi?"
