ABC’s George Stephanopoulos Confuses Bill Russell For Morgan Freeman

While pointing out famous people in the crowd during today’s inauguration of President Obama, ABC News anchor George Stephanopoulos made a fool of himself when he confused NBA Hall of Famer Bill Russell for actor Morgan Freeman.

“That’s Morgan Freeman, I think, right there on the Capitol steps,” said Stephanopoulos, who probably thinks all black people look alike. “No, Bill Russell, I’m sorry,” he said after he was quickly corrected by a member of the production crew.

Never mind that Morgan Freeman looks ABSOLUTELY NOTHING like Bill Russell, who is 6-feet-10 tall and was wearing a Boston Celtics cap, and looks ABSOLUTELY NOTHING like Morgan Freeman, who looks ABSOLUTELY NOTHING like Bill Russell.

Did we mention that Morgan Freeman and Bill Russell look ABSOLUTELY NOTHING like each other? Because they don’t.
