The titular character on “Murphy Brown” once went on a date with Donald Trump. That plot point was borrowed by star Candice Bergen’s real life.
Yes, Bergen went on a date with Trump.
“I was very young. I was about 18. Trump and I are about the same age — or as he would point out, I’m about six months older. And it was when I was at Penn,” the CBS star told Stephen Colbert on Wednesday. “I might have invented this because it’s so perfect, but I think he was wearing a burgundy suit, with a burgundy vest and burgundy patent leather boots and was in a burgundy limousine. It was kind of a symphony in burgundy.”
“He looked like a big bruise,” Colbert interjected to laughter.
“I was home very early,” Bergen recalled.
