Diane Sawyer’s Slurring Sparks Drunken Rumors On Election Night
Diane Sawyer is one of the most-respected women in the news business.
She’s intelligent, poised, and charismatic…except for last night, that is!
Twitter was abuzz Tuesday night, alleging Sawyer was under the influence of something.
Apparently ABC lost power at their news desk for nearly a half hour. The network shifted coverage to their reporters on the scene and when Sawyer was moved over to a different part of the studio, she just didn’t seem the same.
She stuttered, slurred her words, and seemed out of sorts.
So were everybody’s concerns warranted or are they making a mountain out of a mole hill? Let’s go to the video!
Sawyer referred to the incident today on Twitter, but did not comment on her own performance:
A few celebrities couldn’t help themselves and put in their own two cents on the trending topic.
