Who is George Stephanopoulos?
Stephanopoulos is one of the world’s most recognized television hosts. He rose to fame in the television industry when he became the host of This Week in 2002. The show covers various political topics and has been one of the top discussion programs in the world. First televised in 1981, the show is more commonly known today as This Week with George Stephanopoulos, as the show and ABC itself have become synonymous with the anchor’s name.
The show host has interviewed some of the world’s current and previous world leaders such as Bill Clinton, Barack Obama, Cory Booker, and most recently New York City Mayor Eric Adams. Adams, who was sworn in on Jan. 1, sat down with Stephanopoulos last week and discussed the COVID-19 pandemic, unemployment, and other topics. The episode was one of the highest viewed episodes in the show’s recent history. Many people wanted to know what the new NYC mayor has in store for the city.
Adams was a highly trending topic on social media after he made comments in a press conference and said, “My low-skilled workers, my cooks, my dishwashers, my messengers, my shoe-shine people, those who work in Dunkin’ Donuts, they don’t have the academic skills to sit in a corner office.” Many speculate that Adams misworded what he was trying to say, but the statement still offended a lot of people.
