Erin Burnett is hot. She is also a financial reporter. Unfortunately, many of the men around her seem incapable of separating the two.
Today, on Morning Joe, Donny Deutsch asked her if she wasn't going to be reporting on Donald Trump's pseudo-run for the presidency because "of the former romantic liaisons" she had with him. (Burnett has judged on The Apprentice a few times. Update: Since this apparently needs to be said: No one ever seriously suggested she dated Trump.) Willie Geist protested that he had gone too far, but former Pennsylvania governor Ed Rendell thought it was hilarious.
(Same Donny Deutsch who called Sarah Palin "the feminist ideal," as opposed to alleged bonerkiller Hillary Clinton. Same Ed Rendell who proclaimed that Janet Napolitano was perfect for her job because you have to have "no life" and she had "no family.")
