George Stephanopoulos brings down the house with the first thing he would ask during the Biden-Trump debate

ABC News’ Georges Stephanopoulos admitted he is highly unlikely to moderate any of President Joe Biden’s recently announced 2024 presidential debates with the presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trumpgiven that Trump is currently suing Stephanopoulos for defamation.

But Stephanopoulos told “Late Show” host Stephen Colbert on Wednesday that he would definitely be up for the role. And the reporter was widely applauded by Colbert’s audience when he shared what his very first question to both candidates would be.

“Who won the last election? Stephanopoulos said he would ask the question, adding: “I hope that’s the first question.”

Trump, of course, continues to baselessly claim that the 2020 election was stolen from him.

Biden and Trump agreed to debate in June and September.

Stephanopoulos called it an “interesting” and “bold” move by Biden and said “the rules he has in place could make a difference.”

“I love them,” Colbert said of the conditions. “No audience, in a studio and when the time is up, the microphone rings. It’s a waste of power.

Stephanopoulos agreed but cautioned: “I wonder if, at the end of the day, if these rules are really in place, if the debate is really happening. But I think these rules are essential.

Elsewhere in the interview, Stephanopoulos revealed his “new rule” by interviewing guests who repeat Trump’s election lies and refuse to say whether they will accept the outcome of the 2024 vote.

The “first questions I ask every time,” he said, are: “Do you accept the last election? Why are you supporting someone who refuses to accept the last election? Why are you supporting someone who was indicted for trying to overturn the last election?

“If they can’t answer those questions, I’m not going to move on to tax policy or environmental policy or anything like that,” he told Colbert.
