George Stephanopoulos' Wife Tells 'The View' Her Daughters Are Scared After Election

December 13, 2016

Ali Wentworth, the wife of ABC host George Stephanopoulos, said Tuesday on "The View" that the couple's teenage daughters are scared following Donald Trump's election victory.

While discussing the 2016 presidential election with the hosts of ABC's show "The View," Wentworth described how her daughters were handling Hillary Clinton's loss.

"I have an eleven-year-old daughter who doesn't really understand what ISIS is but she knows that she is scared and she is now sleeping in bed with us every night," Wentworth said.

"Yeah, so what do you do? You got little girls, you see what's happening," co-host Whoopi Goldberg responded. "What can you say to other parents who are at their wit's end with their children who are scared, and they're also scared as adults?"

Wentworth responded to Goldberg before she continued describing the distress her children have felt since election night.

"It just involves my fourteen-year-old getting upset about the election and screaming 'no abortions' really loudly," Wentworth recalled.

Wentworth's husband, George Stephanopoulos, worked in former President Bill Clinton's White House and reportedly has donated tens of thousands of dollars to the Clinton Foundation in the past, which he did not disclose on air. Robby Mook, the campaign manager for Hillary Clinton's failed presidential run, was once an intern for Stephanopoulos.
