Katie Couric on Donald Trump: 'He was just acting like a jackass'

(POLITICO.com) - Katie Couric both applauded Donald Trump for having “a good heart” and called him a “jackass” on Monday’s “Tonight Show.”

Host Jay Leno – who opened the show with as many Rep. Anthony Weiner jokes as he could fit in – asked Couric what she made of The Donald’s political passions.

“Because I live in New York and I’ve seen Donald at various events, he actually can be a very nice person with a good heart, but I think he was just acting like a jackass for a while,” said Couric. “It’s as if he was abducted by aliens temporarily. He was just acting so strangely,” she added.
