Good Morning America” co-host Lara Spencer got flak on Tuesday when she seemed to post an Instagram pic of herself sitting on presidential candidate Donald Trump’s lap.

Comments on the shot, which appeared to show smiling Spencer and Trump with his arm around her and his own grin, included “Unprofessional,” “Gross!” and “You are a professional. Sitting on his lap. Really? I think it’s inappropriate.”

Another countered, “These comments display what is wrong with America. Lighten up people!”

But ABC reps explained the image was an optical illusion. Trump was seated on the “GMA” set on a tall chair at a table, and Spencer was standing next to him. Spencer also changed the pic’s caption to clear up any confusion.
