While the Democrats grapple with the aftermath of President Joe Biden's recent debate missteps, former President Donald Trump has taken the opportunity to launch a series of scathing insults toward ABC News anchor George Stephanopoulos ahead of his interview with the commander-in-chief.

Trump, who initially refrained from social media attacks post-debate, broke his silence on July 4 with a forceful barrage aimed at both Biden and Stephanopoulos. Taking to Truth Social, he expressed his disdain for the ABC anchor in particular, labeling him as "one of the worst and most vile Broadcasters in the business."

George Stephanopoulos was selected as President Joe Biden's first interviewer following concerns about his cognitive abilities.

"The meanest and most vicious Interviewer out there is George Slopadopoulos of FAKE NEWS ABC, one of the worst and most vile Broadcasters in the business," Trump shared to his 6.9 million followers on Truth Social. "In fact, the home of disgraced “reporter” Brian Ross whose reporting on the Russia, Russia, Russia Hoax was so outlandish that ABC, after defending him at levels not seen before, was forced to put him, and their reputation, out to pasture."

"Now ABC, and Liddle’ George, a tiny, angry man, can make up for their past indiscretions and journalistic failures by doing a real interview with Crooked Joe, not a cut up promotion with only his few coherent answers released to the public," he continued. "Let the World know why Joe directed, and allowed his Department of Injustice, and others, to illegally attack his Political Opponent, ME. Nothing like this has ever happened in our Country before. Also, ask why he used all Soros Prosecutors and, in particular, a loser like Deranged Jack Smith? The proof is irrefutable – Crooked Joe is a COWARD!!!"

George Stephanopoulos and ABC are being sued by Donald Trump for defamation.

As OK! previously reported, Trump filed a defamation lawsuit against Stephanopoulos and ABC in March following an interview the news anchor did with Representative Nancy Mace (R-S.C.), taking issue with Stephanopoulos’ questioning saying that Trump had been found liable for rape in the E. Jean Carroll case, when Trump actually had been found liable of sexual abuse.
