'Showbiz Tonight' Flashpoint: Can Trump take the heat of a presidential run?

Fireworks erupted on morning television today after Donald Trump apparently got his feathers ruffled during a TV interview about his potential candidacy for president.

It all began when "Good Morning America" host George Stephanopoulos asked him why he was still pursuing the issue of President Obama’s birth certificate. Trump tried to move on to the next question but George wasn’t letting him get away with it! It made us wonder how Trump would handle the pressure of actually running for president if and when he actually announces his plan to run!

I don’t think he can take the heat of a run for the White House, and we have even more on "Showbiz Tonight" later today including the back and forth between George and The Donald, as well as our pick for Trump’s “Celebrity ‘Appresident.’”

What do you think? Tell me below.

Some other big stories we’re fired up about on the show today…

"Showbiz Tonight" is bringing you the latest details on the Charlie Sheen custody battle involving his soon to be ex-wife Brooke Mueller. Will Charlie get custody of his sons?

Mariah Carey has been tapped to work with Simon Cowell – can two divas work together?!

And "Showbiz Tonight" wants to know: Who’s the hottest royal of them all? Find out today when you tune into "Showbiz Tonight"!

See you on "Showbiz Tonight" at 5 p.m. ET and again at 11 p.m. ET/PT on HLN today!

    Country has had eight years before Obama of politics as usual with the same choice of hacks. Had hopes for Obama but just no experience n any area it has been bad. Trump offers best freshness since a B Movie Actor ran Is time again for something fresh, not a political hack like Stephanopoulos

    I use to find him interesting as a guest and his view points – now he doesn't give his host's an opportunity to talk, he will not answer questions -it appears it is "my way or the highway " – scary – so off to better viewing

    If Barack Obama, who was an unknown just 4 years ago could take the heat Trump sure can take a lot more heat.

    I guess I can take Showbiz tonight off my 'watch' list. It's become another Love-a-lib, support Barry Soetero in his re-election bid program. If you want to be fair why did you laud George "Only Democrats are Gods" Stephanopoulos for repeating the same stupid question instead of moving forward which most GOOD interviewers do. (Barbara Walters, even Joy Behar, doesn't beat a dead horse.) George S. is the most unfair, one sided liberal ever. He makes Barry Soetero (nee Barack Hussein Obama) look like a Conservative. Get over the puppy love.

    He is an idiot. How long do you think it would take this big wind to insult every leader in the world. He would accomplish nothing because he is only interested in hearing himself speak. What a joke. Actually hope he stays in the campaign, definite win for Dems.
