‘GMA’ and ‘Today’ looked remarkably similar this Halloween
Morning news nemeses “Good Morning America” and “Today” are more alike than they’d like to admit.
Both shows’ hosts went all-out for their Halloween costumes, but ended up channeling the same ’80s themes on Wednesday.
ABC’s “GMA” anchors dressed as characters from “Dynasty,” “The A-Team” and “Family Ties.”
Robin Roberts posted, “Was a fan of ‘Dynasty’ especially when the beautiful and talented Diahann Carroll joined the cast.”
Michael Strahan went as Mr. T and George Stephanopoulos was Michael J. Fox’s Alex P. Keaton.
On NBC, “Today” anchors took inspiration from “Coming to America,” Cyndi Lauper and “Back to the Future.”
Craig Melvin was Eddie Murphy’s Prince Akeem, while Savannah Guthrie had fun as Lauper.
But Al Roker — who last week criticized former colleague Megyn Kelly’s controversial comments on blackface and Halloween costumes — caught some flak for his Doc Brown costume.
“I’m going to say this one last time, but the folks who get it, understand and the ones who DON’T, won’t,” he wrote on Twitter. “I can be Doc Brown, and I wear the outfit and wig and not change my skin color . . . if you’re white, you can be President Obama if you want. Just don’t color your skin!”
