CBS's Scott Pelley recently called out Donald Trump for failing to counter a bigoted comment about Muslims at a recent campaign event.
During Tuesday's broadcast of "CBS Evening News," the anchor showed a clip from an upcoming "60 Minutes" interview in which he confronted the Republican presidential candidate for not challenging a supporter who said, "We have a problem in this country. It's called Muslims."
"You let that pass," Pelley told Trump. "And I wonder what that tells us about you."
The man's comments focused on President Barack Obama, Trump replied -- and he's not obligated to defend the president, because Obama wouldn't do the same for him.
But Pelley didn't buy the excuse. "Here you had a bigot that you could've slapped down," he said, and asked Trump whether the incident should have received a different response from a man running to be president.
"I love the Muslims. I have many, many friends -- people living in this building, Muslims," Trump responded. They're phenomenal people."
